God is able to abundantly bless in all things at all times. God is able to provide what is needed for every good work. He is able when we are unable. He is able to soften our heart when we are unable to listen. He is able to illumine our thoughts when we are unable to understand the truth. He is able to love us when we are unable to love ourselves. God is able. Yes! His Spirit is able to intercede on our behalf when we are unable to pray. My Lord Jesus is ready, willing and able.
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
So, what are we to do when God is able, but unwilling? What if His help seems delayed or unresponsive? First, we are reassured knowing the character of our Heavenly Father is 100% trustworthy. He is good and He desires what’s best for His children. Furthermore, our will does not always align with the Lord’s will. Free will is free to chose badly. Thus, we require the Spirit’s ‘will alignments’ by renewing our mind and purifying our heart. Clarity comes from cleansing and repentance. God is able, but we may not be ready, so we remain steady in prayer.
Whatever you are facing, your Heavenly Father is able to face down. In your fear He will give you faith and courage to meet your challenge with grace and commitment. In your new opportunity He will teach you the skill of listening, so you can learn to go further, faster. In your conflict He will model for you the art of peacemaking, so you can bring harmony to a hurting home. In your success, He will keep you grateful and humble through your generous giving. God is able to bless you beyond measure, so you can be a trusted pass through for His ample supply!
“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
