God Is Able
Posted: April 14, 2017
Have you ever though to yourself that someone was beyond saving? Like, you think of them and their life and eventually conclude that there's no way they will ever turn to God. I know I have, and it pains me to say so. I've actually witnessed some of the craziest salvations that I've ever heard of in my life, and they were of people that I had written off as never having a chance.
(God, forgive us for playing judge sometimes!)
God is able to do immeasurably more than we could ever ask or think. That's what the Bible tells us. There are some people, even now, that my flesh says will never turn to Christ. But the Spirit of God says YES to those people. God's Spirit is capable of literally any miracle. Nothing and no one is beyond his reach. His strong arm of love can reach us even in the darkest depths.
I've personally seen it, and even after that, I sometimes have a hard time believing it. But I know in my heart that God can do anything and he can save anyone. If we believe, we will see all of his goodness and all of his grace and all of his glory, cuz that's what he promises us.
“Jesus responded, ‘Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believe?’” - John 11:40
Jesus said this to his dear friend, Martha, after he raised Lazarus from the dead. She thought that was impossible, but God showed her a real miracle. God raised a man from death to life. Do you think that if he is able to do that, that he is more than able to turn a stone cold heart to him?
God, thank you for saving me. Thank you for showing me your grace and glory. I believe that you can show me your glory again in the salvation of _________ (fill in the blank). I believe that they are not beyond saving. You are able to save them, so I ask that you do so, and I commit to do whatever it takes to see it through. In Jesus' name, amen.
