God is Able

God is able to do immeasurably more for us than we can ever imagine (Philippians 4:19). However, He resists the proud and unrighteous and only responds to the humble and upright in heart (Ephesians 3:20; James 4:6).

His power works in authentic Believers and calls us to a deeper relationship with Him. He desires that we dedicate our entire heart, soul, mind and strength to His service (Mark 12:30).

Daily, we come to know Him more intimately through prayer, including times of listening; Bible reading and meditation; fellowshipping and worshipping with other Believers; and walking by His Spirit moment by moment throughout the day.

Limiting God to our human understanding is foolish and prevents us from fully trusting Him with our life. There is nothing He requires of us that is impossible, as long as we trust in and rely on His power within us (Matthew 19:26).

We also allow Satan's lies, perpetuated by devilish people in this world, to prevent us from enjoying God's bountiful fellowship with us day by day (Matthew 5:19).

His desire is to conform us into the likeness of His Son Jesus and to work out everything in this life for our ultimate good (Romans 8:28-29). Our humble submission to His will guarantees His blessings in our life.

Father God, we look forward to You accomplishing Your will on this earth and in our life, just as it is already produced in heaven (Matthew 6:10). We do not want to convince You to do our will through our prayers and petitions; but to pray according to Your Spirit that Your will shall be done.

We trust in Your perfect plan for our life and we submit to the direction of Your Spirit each moment of the day (Proverbs 3:5-8). We present our self to You as an empty vessel for You to fill with the mind of Christ, the fruit of Your Spirit and Your divine nature (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Thought for the Day:
We humble our self under the mighty hand of God and surrender our body, soul and spirit for Him to use for His glory; as we acknowledge that He can do infinitely more in and through us than we ever could on our own. - 1 Peter 5:6-7
