He Is Able
Have you noticed, with the Apostle Paul, how the Lord “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” (Eph. 3:20)? Requests that we pray for in the will of God and outcomes we think about are no match for the Lord’s powerful capacities.
Look at how the Lord has met your physical needs. Look at His sovereignty in providing you with the food you eat and the place in which you live. Look at His care in the vehicle you drive, and look at His love in sustaining your health. Look at His overall wisdom and goodness in giving you income and niceties. Let God’s exceeding kindness encourage you.
Also, look at how the Lord has met your spiritual needs. Look at the spiritual progress in your life now versus five years ago. Look at how the Lord answers prayer to help you, to open doors of ministry, and to direct your steps. Look at how God blesses a desire to worship Him Scripturally in church. Look at how He has worked in the lives of others to honor Him.
The Lord wants to use us, but too often we limit Him. Let us submit to Him day by day and watch Him do exceeding abundant things in our lives.
