One of the most important things that we can remember is that our God is able. The Bible constantly reminds us that nothing is impossible for God. There is only one thing that God cannot do and that is that God cannot fail. He is awesome; He is mighty; He is almighty. As Paul wrote in Ephesians 3:20, “God is able to do immeasurably more than any of us can possibly ask and imagine.” If all you have in this life to depend on is you and your own strength, then life will get overwhelming at times. But when you have committed your life to God and you know this awesome God, then you and I can live victoriously no matter what the circumstances are around us. Paul said it right when he said, “We are more than conquerors through Christ who loves us.” Nothing can beat you, nothing can defeat you, nothing can destroy you when you know Jesus Christ. So don’t get so absorbed in your problems and burdens and stresses and tragedies that you forget about the glorious power of God in Jesus Christ. If God can raise a man from the dead, then what have you to fear? What have you to dread? God can raise you up above whatever it is that is trying to pull you down. Remember, God is able to do immeasurably more than you can ask or imagine. God is able.
