Although God has provided in the past and we know He will show up in the future, we constantly struggle with the present. We ask, Can God?
Well perhaps we need to adjust our thoughts and feelings and turn our question into a statement. God Can!
Although the words are the same, the order of the words are different and provide a certainty, assurance, and hope for our future when spoken.
In the past we have defined Godly hope as a guarantee that is anchored in Jesus Christ, the unchanging Son of God, and His unchanging promises found in the Word of God. In other words, it is our bridge to our future.
Various Bible characters come to mind as we ponder the phrase, God Can:
All of these Bible characters give us hope to know that God can. Each one struggled with their faith before and during their tests; however, each one came out victorious.
As in the Bible, we all face times of uncertainty, doubt, and fear; however, we must gather hope from the word of God and stand on the fact that our Lord is unchangeable and able to do whatever we need.
Most people, when struggling with their faith, don’t struggle because they question, "Can God, but will He do it for me?". Today’s scripture gives us an emphatic, YES!
We must put God first, stand on who is His, and wait patiently for Him to fulfill His promises. Whatever you are facing today, stop asking “Can God?” and declare “God Can!”
