5 Min Life Coach: 11 things God is able to do
October 22, 2014
God is well able to do far more than we think or imagine...

God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Ephesians 3:20-21 The Message

We know God CAN, we know God is ABLE, but when we are struggling and we've asked God to help us and He seems deaf to out pleas we start to wonder. Sometimes at this point our faith gets a bit shaky and we stop standing on what we know.

You haven't heard from me much lately because I've been in the wars. My friend died at the end of August, I fell and cracked some ribs at the end of September and I'm still recovering, still unwell. My husband is still out of work...

It would be so easy to slip into woe is me, but I know from experience that self pity is a slippery slope. Much better when faced face with adversity to pray...

"Father, give us grace not to focus on the pain and discomfort, or on what we're facing, or what we've lost, help us to keep our focus on you and your promises."

One of the Lord's many promise...

"My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." Our wonderful heavenly daddy has plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us a hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

When you're struggling, focus on things that feed and nourish your soul. You'll find plenty of soul nourishing things here

11 things God is able to do

The word “Able” is translated from the word dunatos (in turn from dunamai) which refers to the power one has by virtue of inherent ability and resources. “Able” describes that which has sufficient or necessary power, means, skill, or resources to accomplish an objective.

I am completely persuaded that God is Able

God is able to create something out of nothing

God is able from these stones to raise up children. Matthew 3:9

God is able to make all grace abound to you

God is able to make all grace abound to you… having all-sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8

God is able to deliver

God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand. Daniel 3:17

God is able to give you strength to rise above trials

God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13

God is able to save

He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25

God is able to build you up in Grace

I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Acts 20:32

God is able to exceed your expectation… He is able to do exceedingly above all you can ask of imagine

The Lord is able to give you much more than this… 2 Chronicles 25:9

God is able to keep you from falling

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy. Jude 1:24

God is able to Guard the good word in you, good deposit in you… to keep you from error

I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. Follow the pattern of his sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. By the Holy Spirit who dwells within. 2 Timothy 1:12-14

God is able to fulfil His promises

Fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. Romans 4:21

God is able to comfort those who are afflicted Who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:4

Walter Bright

Abraham didn't focus on his own impotence and say, “It’s hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child.” Nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up. He didn't tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions.

He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said. That’s why it is said, “Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right.” But it’s not just Abraham; it’s also us!

The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless. The sacrificed Jesus made us fit for God, set us right with God. Romans 4: 19-25 The Message

All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. 2 Corinthians 1:2-5 The Message
