Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us (Ephesians 3:20)
Last week was Easter and we learned about our Unstoppable God who brought His Son back after He was in the grave for three days. We celebrated with the song Unstoppable God by Elevation Worship. Since God is unstoppable that means He is able to handle anything that comes His way. Our God is able to help us with what we think to be impossible for us on our own. Our worship song for today will be God is Able by Hillsong Chapel. The link to this song is https://youtu.be/EHhtNXkSyTE or search for the song title and artist on YouTube. Almighty God is the one who never fails. He is so much greater than all we can ask and everything see. In three days He defeated the grave and on Easter a couple thousand years ago He was raised to life again. In His name we overcome whatever evil we might face in this life. Our God is Able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or think. God can make a way even where there is no way. At a recent doctor’s appointment I found out that I’ve lost about 30 pounds. Before we celebrate I must say that it is not really in my best interests to be this thin. I am underweight and need to gain a substantial amount to feel at my optimum health. The good news is that I have seen God move for me in a similar fashion after my brother died and I weighed even less than I do right now. The point I am making with this story is that I know God is Able to help me do this again if I trust in Him and let Him lead the way. He is also able to handle every impossible situation in each of our lives if we will trust and allow Him to do so.
In the story about Shadrak, Meshak and Abednigo we find these three young men unwilling to bow before an idol made in the image of King Nebuchadnezzar. They are unwilling to compromise their beliefs even though they will be thrown in a fiery furnace for disobeying a direct order from the King. They were convinced that God was able to deliver them from sure death and the hand of the King (Daniel 3:17). God indeed was able to save them from the fire and the King acknowledged the superiority of their God. He is able to bless each one of us with abundant blessings so that in all things at all times, we will have everything we need to abound in good works (2 Corinthians 9:8). Whatever impossible situation we face God is Able to deliver us from it without the smell of smoke getting on our clothes. Because of His great power God can do so much more than we could ever imagine. To understand us better He sent His Son to be fully human, in order that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that He might make atonement for the sins of the people. Since He suffered in this life and faced temptation, He is able to help us when we are tempted (Hebrews 2:17-18). Because Jesus lives forever He has a permanent priesthood. This is why everlasting salvation is available to those who come to God through Him; He lives to always intercede for us (Hebrews 7:24-25). He is completely able to save us from our sins. Jesus inside of us is able to keep us from stumbling and presents us in the glorious presence of God without fault and with great joy (Jude 1:24). One of the elders in John’s revelation vision said, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals (Revelation 5:5).” The Lord is able to do what no one else in creation can do. To whatever it is in our life that seems it can’t be done we need to say God is Able to do (that thing) for us.

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
