"God is Able"
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8
I like the very first part of this verse. "And God is able..." Some of the intellectuals who read this will be yelling "Fragment!" right about now; but that is not important. It is simple, "God is able!" That is all you need! When you are down in the hole financially- God is able! When life seems to be spiraling out of control- God is able! It really is that simple and easy. I understand that this verse goes on and on about "grace abound to you," etc., etc... but that is not the main meat of the verse. Before you can understand anything else about this verse you have to understand the very first part- God is able. So many times we sell God short. We keep Him locked in a cage and don't let Him out. People! LET GOD OUT! HE IS ABLE! I like what Numbers 11:23 says, "And the Lord said to Moses, 'Has the Lord's arm been shortened? Now you shall see whether what I say will happen to you or not.'" My question to you: When did God become less powerful? When did God go from being the Almighty to the "can't do anything God?" God is Able! No matter what situation you are in, God is able!
