Saturday | August 31 | God Is Able

God is able to do far more than we could ever ask for or imagine. He does everything by His power that is working in us. –Ephesians 3:20 NIRV

Have you ever noticed that if you put the word “go” with “disable,” you get God Is Able? When I was a child, I had an aunt who was physically disabled; her neck was broken at birth. She never walked, attended school, dated, or got married. My grandparents took care of her every need. They homeschooled her, lifted her in and out of her wheelchair, and loved her dearly. She never had a “normal” life, yet her life was quite extraordinary. She loved the Lord, and on Sunday mornings, we could hear the old-time gospel hour blaring on her radio. She lived a positive, godly life.

God is able. He can do above and beyond anything we can dare ask, hope, or think. He is not only able, He is willing. We limit Him with our lack of faith, get angry with Him when things don’t go our way. IF we can believe, ALL things ARE possible. He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him. My aunt did not live a disabled life; she lived it to the utmost for His highest. God Is Able! May we all live a life that proves it

Prayer Focus

  • Ask the Father to increase your faith and to enlarge your borders.
  • Live life to the best of your ability with what you have, instead of lamenting over what you don’t have.
