Our God is a mighty God. It is God that created the heavens and earth, it is God that put all the stars in the sky, it is God that created man and give him life, It is God that raised our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ up from the dead, it is God that put the gift of holy spirit within those that say with their mouth the Lord Jesus and that believe in there hearts that God raised his son Jesus Christ from the dead Roman 10: 9 &10 ask yourself a question, how much have you doubted that God will work on your behalf when you go to him. How many time have you thought well God did it for the believers of the bible times but will he really do it for me.
God done something great for me before but will he do it again
The one thing That God requires of His Children is faith, in fact it is impossible to please God with out it. Hebrew 11:6 says
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
We as believers should 1000 per cent expect from God. Our heavenly Father wants to bless us even more then we want to blessed. God our Father want to work for His children. But one thing is required on our part and that is we must simply believe Him. There are three things that help me keep my focus when i am going to God in prayer and asking Him to help me I will share them here with you. I remember
1. God is Able
2. God is Willing
3. God is Faithful
I keep theses things in mind because if i know God is able then i am going to go to Him right? i certainly would not go to God if he was not able. I also remember that God is willing to help me in any situation, if you knew someone was able to help you and also willing to help you of course you would go to them wouldn’t you? So how about God he is bigger then any other person isn’t He? And then I remind myself that God is Faithful he would never ever let me down when I believe Him and His Word. So after remembering these three things about God The Next thing I do is get God into the picture I invite God in to the situation by going to Him in Prayer.
Psalms 55: 22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
The New living translation says of Psalms 55:22 says
Give your burdens to the Lord and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.
When we go to God and give Him our Burdens we know from Gods word he will take care of You.
Mark 11:24 ( New living translation ) Jesus was teaching how to receive answer to prayer
I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.
See when we pray and believe we know for sure we will receive because we know God is Able, willing and faithful. Another great thing to remember about our amazing God is that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE with Him, now with us there are so many thing that impossible. What did Jesus Christ have to say about the impossible?
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
Again we see from God Word that God is able and it He can make all grace abound towards you.
1 Corinthian 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Here we see God is faithful we just need to keep God in the picture and go to him with everything.
Can you remember the record of the man that came to Jesus he was full of leprosy he knew Jesus was able to heal him but he wasn’t sure if Jesus was willing, remember Jesus always did the Fathers will.
Lets read the record in Luke 5: 12-13 – 12 And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
He knew Jesus could heal him but wasnt sure if Jesus was willing
read on the response from Jesus,
Verse 13 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.
Isnt great to know that God is willing to helps so we should have great confidence in God to go for what ever it we need know God will
come through through for us. Abraham had great faith in God he knew that God was able and willing and faithful.
And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;
But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
Let us be fully persuaded that what God has promised us in His Word he will do for us when we believe Him. Abraham didn’t stagger in his thinking his believing, He knew that God was not only able to bring about to him what God promise to him but that God was also willing and faithful to do it. God has this recorded in His Word so we can also see that we can fully trust God in everything.
So remember God is able, God is willing and God is faithful
Get God in to the Picture and get fully persuaded, that God will
will go to work on your behalf.
