2 Corinthians 9:8 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.”
Ephesians 3:20 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,”
God is Almighty; His awesome ability to save and deliver is domiciled in His love for us. John 3:16 tells us that God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The love of God is pregnant with salvation power or ability, and Jesus Christ is the substance of that love. Jesus Christ is proof of His love for us.
When He so loved the world, He gave His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. This is the whole essence of Christmas. When faith is reposed in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, God’s saving power is made manifest to everyone who believes. Isaiah 53:1 tells us, “Who hath believed our report; and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” God’s saving arm is revealed to everyone who believes His report of Jesus Christ, that He died for our sins and was raised from death for our justification, and that by the stripes that wounded Him, we are healed.
God’s ability is far beyond what anyone can imagine; His power is far beyond what the mouth can tell. Our opening scripture tells of God’s awesome ability to make all (kinds of) grace abound towards us, such that we, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound unto every good work. That is how awesome our God is!
Again, the opening verse says God can make all grace abound towards us. God is able to save to the uttermost those who come to Him through Christ Jesus. Not only is He able to save, He is also able to make rich and cause all grace to abound towards us in all things, to possess all sufficiency in all things, that we might abound unto every good work. God wants you to become fruitful in every good work. Do you believe this?
God can so bless you that you are so blessed in all good things for all good works. He can so furnish you with grace for all seasons that you are always ready for every task that comes your way. This is God’s ability towards us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 3:20 tells us, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” God can do much more than you ask or imagine, according to His ability that is at work in you. Believe God for the overflow today. He will surpass your expectations beyond every desire; He is able to bless and shower the blessed with blessings.
My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of Jesus, I am overtaken by the blessing of the Lord, so much that I become an epitome of wealth and unceasing fruitfulness. Amen
