What Can Your God Do?

You have got to read THIS blog post from Perry Noble.  He's right.  We don't have a clue, and I see this more and more in my life and in the lives of the people I get to talk to.  Where have we missed how big God is and all He is able to do?  Have we missed that in our own minds?  I think we have missed it because we are blind and even build walls.  It comes through our own poor judgement and human thinking.  That is why we have to let God improve or change our thinking.  Do you agree?

Case: Abraham was told to sacrifice his son.  His only son who was promised to him in his old age.  What did Abraham do?  He followed God.  Here is why:

Hebrews 11:19 (nlt) --- Abraham reasoned that if Isaac died, God was able to bring him back to life again. And in a sense, Abraham did receive his son back from the dead.

Case: 3 men who were about to be killed if they didn't give in to the pressure of a bad king.  Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were those men.  Here is what they did:

Daniel 3:17 (nlt) --- If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty.
 
Do we really believe that God is able?  Will we take God and the Bible at His word?  That takes huge amounts of courage.  Abraham believed that Isaac was God's to give and to take from Him.  The three men that went into the fire believed that God was with them and would give them help in the blazing fire.  God came through for both.  Won't God do that again?

I challenge you and me to change our human thinking into divine thinking.  Some people that isn't rational.  But truth is, what is human and of flesh kicks faith out of our lives.  And I want to live by faith.  How about you.  When your thinking doesn't match up to what God says, do this:

2 Corinthians 10:5 (nlt) --- We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.

What can your God do?  Read for yourself 1 Kings 18 and the story about Elijah taking on all of Baal's prophets.  God showed up, and people believed God is God and that He is able.  Lets do the same.
