He can…

What if Noah had said, “I can’t build a boat?”

What if Abraham had said, “I’m not up for the travel at this stage in my life?”

What if David had said, “I can’t fight that giant…he’s too big!”

What if Nehemiah had said, “I can’t build a wall around an entire city!”

What if Paul had said, “I can’t write down what I feel the Spirit leading me to write; because I have a questionable past?”

The Bible is comfortingly full of people who refused to focus on their inability and chose to trust in God’s ability working through them.  And I believe if we as leaders in the church would step up and do the same then we would see what Jesus said in John 14:12 become more and more of a reality.

Philippians 4:13 says “I can in Christ,” Not, a maybe – hopefully – message. 2 Corinthians 9:8 assures us that God is able! and 2 Timothy 1:7 says that the spirit of fear doesn’t come from God…but rather power, love and self discipline.

God can…and in Him we can! so here’s to the change this should bring to my worries, inactivity, faithless and fear. His character, not my circumstances is my confidence! Our God can…and he wants to live His fullest adventure through you and me!

Our God can!
