Light On My Path Part 11 - God is Able

Her faith felt weak as she faced this new challenge. Her husband lost his job and it was just before Christmas. Inwardly shaky yet outwardly strong she said all the right and reassuring things. She only wished she could believe them.

Faith is easy when the way is well lit. Yet when you walk in the dim light of struggles, faith must be a decision. God knows we will sometimes feel shaky in our faith. He puts promises in His Word to become a lifeline in those “rock your world” moments that surprise all of us at times.

If you are in one of those times right now then know this, “GOD IS ABLE”! Listen to the promise of His Word to you, His child…

to make all grace abound (overflow!) to you
so that in all things
at all times
having all that you need
you WILL abound (overflow) in every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:8

Take your eyes off of your circumstance right now just for a moment. Turn your focus to this verse and say out loud, “God is able!”.

He can give you what you need as you face your particular challenge. His grace will extend to your emotions too so that you will be able to overflow even to the point of touching others.

This is more than just surviving; more than simply getting by… this is tapping into the divine help and strength of our God who is able!

Choose to have faith in His desire and ability to help you. Determine to trust Him today. Ask Him to increase your faith. Write “GOD IS ABLE” on a scrap of paper and put it on your computer screen, your mirror or the dash of your car. Look for His grace to be extended to you in your circumstances and in your emotions.

As you focus on God, rather than on your current challenge, you will be made new in the attitude of your mind. (Ephesians 4:23)

prayer & reflection

Father God,
You alone know how shaky I feel on the inside. I ask You today to strengthen my faith. Help me to focus on You, my God who is able. Give me an expectant heart and an attitude of true confidence that You will be all I need.
In Jesus’ strong name I pray, amen.
