He is able

He is able….

What a great introduction to so much more. He is able. When we know that the God who made the universe is able to AND willing to work in our lives it changes how we view everything. The big question for our faith is this, “Is God big enough to take care of my problem?” That question, whether spoken or not, is at the heart of our fears and worries. Here’s the answer from scripture,
.
He is able.

Now, the next question I know some would ask is this….Is he willing? To both questions the answer is “YES!” Scripture is full of both his ability to meet our needs and his willingness to do so. Here is a passage I read this morning that speaks to these great questions of our heart. It’s one of the great benedictions of scripture. You may have heard it before, but it speaks to these two questions in a grand and wonderful way.

Jude 24 To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— 25 to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

God’s great plan for us is that we finish this life and appear before him with “great joy.” We can’t accomplish this amazing plan on our own, but his response to our request for help in this life is an eternal “YES!” He is there to help. He wants to help. His plan is to keep you from falling and present you before him with great joy. Only the God who is able and willing can make this come true. His questions to us are rather simple, “Will you let me help you? Will you trust me to live my life through you and do, in and through you, what you can’t do on your own?”

He is able. Are you willing?
