Are we able?

Am I capable? Are you?

Sure- in some things we can probably work it out on our own- boiling water, getting dressed, etc.  

But for the big things - being a good spouse, parent, boss/employee, making wise choices, and living out God's call on our life, well - with these things we are pretty incompetent on our own. Without God's capability overriding our incapabilities, we are simply fumbling in the dark.

We may not be capable but God is infinitely so.

Mercy Me has a new song titled 'You are I Am'. The chorus states that our God is the '...one who conquers giants. You're the one who calls out kings. You shut the mouths of lions. You tell the dead to breathe. You're the one who walks through fire. You take the orphans hand. You are the one Messiah. You are I Am.'

The God we worship is the God who created the universe. The one who designed our bodies and the intricate systems that give us life. He is infinitely capable to make his will be accomplished. All we had to do is trust in Him.

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:57, 58 TNIV)
