In many ways today is no different from any other day. Our days can feel so routine - our expectation is the same – daily living sometimes seems as if we are on autopilot.
We know God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Whatever our circumstances, situations or problems, we can trust God to care, to bless, to move, to act, to deliver and to heal.
God can bring healing and wholeness to your life today. God can change your circumstances today. God can work a miracle in your life today. God is able to do more in your life and mine than we can imagine.
A man called William Jett wrote these words:
Doubt sees the obstacles
Faith sees the way,
Doubt sees the blackest night
Faith sees the day;
Doubt dreads to take a step
Faith soars on high;
Doubt questions, “Who believes?”
Faith answers, “I”
In Matthew 19:26 it says: “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
The things which are impossible for us in our own abilities are possible with God.
Where we cannot, God can!
Our God is the same God that spoke this universe into existence. Our God is the God that hung the stars in space. Our God is the God that formed you in your mother’s womb. Our God is the God that knows you better than you know yourself. Our God is the God who loves you and cares for you and has promised never to leave or forsake you. Our God is the God of miracles.
Whatever situation, circumstance, trial, problem, illness, relationship issue, or problem you have, or another member of your family has or a friend has, God can make a difference today.
Consider these words from Ephesians 3:20-21: Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.
Matthew Henry commenting on this truth wrote: “There is an inexhaustible fullness of grace and mercy in God, which the prayers of all the saints can never draw dry. Whatever we may ask, or think to ask, still God is still able to do more, abundantly more, exceedingly abundantly more. Open your mouth ever so wide, still he has the wherewithal to fill it.”
Today, God is able to do infinitely more in your life and mine than we can hope or think or imagine. Just have faith.
