Is It a Matter of What God Can Do?

 

“For nothing will be impossible with God” (Luke 1:37).

But does God always do what He can do?

The multitude wanted Jesus to feed them as He had before, but He offered what they needed most: living bread from heaven (John 6).

At Lazarus’ tomb some said, “Could not this man . . . have kept this man also from dying?” (John 11:37). But by raising him, many more came to believe (11:42-45).

Jesus could have escaped the cross (Matthew 26:50-54; 27:39-44), but aren’t you thankful He didn’t?

Paul prayed three times for God to remove his thorn in the flesh. But God wanted something better for Paul (2 Corinthians 12:7-10).

Faith believes God can, but faith also believes He always does what is best.

Let’s trust Him!
