OUR GOD, whom we serve IS ABLE to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us out of thine hand, O King (Daniel 3:17).

     The words of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, “Our God is able,” have been echoed in some form by many persons in the Word of God.god-is-able

   The Bible says that Abraham believed God was able to perform that which He had promised (Genesis 15:6, Romans 4:21).  Abraham may not have used the same words the three young Hebrew men used but what he said had the same thought. Sarah “…judged Him {God} faithful who had promised” (Hebrews 11:11).  Sarah believed that God was able to strengthen her body so she could have a child even though she was ninety years old.  Sarah trusted God to turn a barren woman into the mother of many nations (Genesis 17:16).

If you want to experience God’s power in your life, you need to first understand that God is able and then begin acting like He’s able.

     The word “able” is defined as having sufficient power, skill, or resources to accomplish an objective or marked by intelligence, knowledge, skill or competence.  Our God is well able, but you have to allow Him to move in your life.  Even in the midst of adverse situations you must remind yourself that God is able.  Then step back in faith and allow Him to fight for you.  It’s not enough just to believe God is able.  You must demonstrate what you believe.  Make the decision to trust God and declare, “I will stay with God.  I believe God because my God is able.”

     God is still the same God; He does not change (Malachi 3:6).  He is still the Lord, God Jehovah.  He is still our Provider.  He is still our Healer, our Victor, and our Peace.  God is still the same.  He was, He is, and He always will be God.

     And He is able!
