“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Mathew 19:29
HOPE FOR TODAY:
Can you imagine our God looking down upon the earth saying, “These silly people, still trying to do the things that only I can do!” Here we see Jesus reflecting in this same way on all that God can do, and how frail mankind is. Almost as though you can hear Jesus say, “Why don’t they just ask?”
God is able to do all things, but what exactly is he willing to do? All things that he is able to do! All things are possible with God!
THEN WHY CAN’T WE HAVE OR DO…?
To understand this fully we must understand that all of the things that God has written to us is all of the things that God has promised to us. This means that with whatever we desire God to do for us we only need to see if he has also written this to us, or if he has promised this to us. Many times people are asking God to do these incredible things that there is no way that God would be willing to do! Such as things that would require him to sin or allow us continue to sin! God will never sin! So what are some of God’s promises? Some of God’s promises are to save, to deliver, to bless us, to provide for us, and to give to us more than before, or life more abundant. How do we know this? He has written this in His word, our Holy Bible. It is the book of promises from God to us, we just need to read it, understand it, and utilize it in our prayer life so that we can actually know what God is able and willing to do! And ask God according to what he has promised!
When we say, “God Willing” we are saying that we have asked God for what he has written to us, and promised to us, and we agree with Him that these are good, otherwise we know that He is not willing to do it already.
So why do we ask crazy things? Because we might not know what God has written and promised! To get it right, All that we need to do is study and learn, and we will soon get on tract with what God is truly willing to do! Remember God is perfect, without sin, without greed, without hatred for another person, and without lust for possessions. Let’s start there, of course there are many things that are to be included beyond these, but that is why we are to study His promises to learn, as we read,
“Study to show thyself approved unto God.” 2Timothy 2:15
LEARN WHAT GOD IS WILLING TO DO!
