GOD IS ABLE

“And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” Romans 4:21
We all must realize that God is always able. He has the ability, He has the dynamic power. What he has promised, He is able to perform. Even if it was not there God will create it because His word cannot fall to the ground. Even when there is no one to speak for you God will put somebody in place, just to speak for your interest and on your behalf. Abraham was fully persuaded saying “It is not up to me, it is up to Him. For me, my hope is already lost. I didn’t say it, I didn’t initiate it, it was not my idea but God’s idea and He is God. If He is God, all things are possible with Him” When you function that way, the next verse is automatic. Romans 4:23 says “… it was imputed unto him for righteousness”
God was saying, Abraham, bring out your report because I am the final umpire. Abraham you have passed. God wants his children to be a demonstration of His kingdom to the world. If we obey His word, God shows us forth as signs and wonders on earth. That is why you must not function the way others function. No! You must function by faith in the word because “the just shall live by faith”. The just shall live by the word of God because the word makes you what God said. And becoming what God said pleases God.
Naturally when you come home with a good result to your parents, you make them happy. That is how God is saying my son, make me happy. I have already spoken about you. I urge you believe His word and leave the fulfilment to Him. He is more than able. I see you coming back with the “spoils” of the battle, laughing at the devil. It is not up to you to do it. No! Your part is to act in faith and obedience. God’s part is to fulfil. He is able to do all things. It doesn’t have to be the normal way. We are spiritual people, God still does the super-natural. The life of Jesus and His Apostles was filled with the supernatural. May God show up for you in every situation in your life.
