If God Is Able Then What Is Keeping You From Your Miracle?

Luke 18:26-27 “And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?  And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”   Matthew 17:20-21 says, “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for assuredly, I say to you, If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there; and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Amen! I am thankful that we serve an awesome and mighty God! I am glad that He has everything in control even though it seems that everything around us is out of control! I readily admit that there are times that God seems a million miles away, but in reality, He is closer than you think. Amen! {{more}} He is as close as the mention of His name! Whatever your needs may be, He is always there to help bear our load. If we are tempted, He is able to deliver. If we are sick, He is able to heal. And whenever we need a miracle, God is still the miracle worker! Amen! I do not want, in any way, to portray our Savior as some kind of errand boy who is at our beckon and call. But, I do want to say that God is concerned about His children, and He is always there to answer the prayer that is ushered out of a heart of faith! It seems that many times the reason why you fail to receive an answer from God is not because you have not prayed. It is not because you have not known God’s Will or Way. But, it is because of a lack of your faith! Amen! It has never been a question of God’s ability or power, for by our text you read that “for with God all things are possible to them that believe!” So if you will allow me again to ask the question, “If God is able, what’s keeping you from your miracle?” We serve an awesome and mighty God! There is no lack to our God and His mighty power. He is not some gray-headed grandfatherly figment of our imagination that walks stooped over with some weather beaten staff in hand. The God of this Bible that is declared to be the Almighty God who knows no limitations or bounds. He is the Ancient of Days who fills up all space and time! He is the Great Creator of this universe who has made all things including man whom He made in His own image! And what God becomes to us strictly depends upon how we really see Him. How big He becomes depends on how you put the magnifying scope of His Word to your spiritual eyes, and focus in upon a God who is bigger than anything you could ever imagine! Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Amen When you think that the moon is just over 100 thousand miles away from the earth. And Pluto, the farthest planet in our solar system is nearly 10 billion miles away. And traveling even farther, 50 billion miles from the earth is what scientist call Interstellar Space, and even it reaches distances impossible for us to imagine! There you find the Proxima Centauri, the nearest star to our galaxy. It is just 25 trillion miles away! Just a Sunday drive! Just to reach that star by space travel traveling at the speed of light, it would take an entire human lifetime to get there! And beyond that, you find what is known as Intergalactic Space, which is the space between galaxies. And beyond that, there is absolutely no ending! Can you imagine a place where no human telescope can discover the contents of its black scape? A place where no human will ever go? Distances so vast and great that no human mathematical equation is ever going to measure it and then to realize that God is bigger than that? Just the mere whisper of the voice of God created it all! It was not anything for God to structure this universe and everything you will ever discover about it. It was just not a big problem for God! He never even broke a sweat! God Does not Struggle Like We Struggle! God showed Moses in His Deliverance of Israel that He was Mightier than Pharaoh and his armies! He showed Joshua that He was still bigger than the walls of Jericho and every barrier to victory! He showed Jehoshaphat that some battles do not belong to man, but that they belong to God! In the New Testament, after man had not heard from God for 400 years because of sin’s separating power, angels heralded the arrival of a Deliverer and a Savior! And the Jehovah God who had so often delivered in man’s past stepped out of the shadows of eternity into time and came again to show us that God is certainly more than enough for our every need! He opened blinded eyes, unstopped deafened ears, caused the dumb to speak, the lame to leap, and the dead to rise again! Amen! Luke 4:18-19 says, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Amen! 1st John 3:8 says,”Because of sin the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” Amen! God is Supreme Ruler Over Everything! He Rules the Heavens! Isaiah 66:1 says,”Thus says the Lord: Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: Where is the house that you build me? And where is the place of my rest? Amen! He Rules the Earth! Psalms 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lords, and all its fullness; the world, and those that dwell therein.” Amen! He Rules the Kings of the Earth! Proverbs 21:1 says “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water: he turns it wherever he wishes.” Amen! God has the power to change men! He Rules the Elements! Proverbs 30:4 declares “he gathers the wind in his fists, binds the waters in a garment, and has established all the ends of the earth. Jesus rebuked the wind and waves on the tempestuous sea and they obeyed his will.” Amen! He Rules Our Enemies! Elijah understood that even in the face of the insurmountable numbers of a Syrian army that “the angels of the Lord are encamped about them that fear Him!” When all the servants could see was the enemy, Elijah could see the Host of Heaven in flaming chariots of fire! 2nd Kings 6:16-17 says, “And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray, open his eyes, that he may see. Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. Our God Is! The Peace Speaker and the Problem Solver! The Miracle Worker and the Heart Mender! He is my Provider and my Supplier! He is my Shepherd and my Song! He is my Sword and my Shield! He is the Healer of all my diseases! The Forgiver of all my iniquities! He is Holy and Highly Exalted! He is Merciful and He is Majestic! There is nothing too hard for Him! He’s the Overseer of the Overcomers, The Captain of Our Salvation, He is Altogether Lovely, And Jesus is His Name! Herod could not kill him, learned men could not baffle Him, Politicians could not bribe Him, and Pharisees could not trick him! Pilot could not touch Him, The devil could not budge Him, The cross could not keep Him, and the grave could not hold Him! There is no Sickness that He Cannot Cure! He is bigger than: Aids or Alzheimer’s, Arthritis or anorexia, Bulimia or bursitis, Cataracts or cancer, Depression or diabetes, Emphysema or Epilepsy, Hepatitis or Heart disease, Melanoma or Migraines, Blindness or eye disease, Tuberculosis or anything else! The Bible still declares that by His stripes we are healed! Amen! Now you know what is keeping you from your miracle. Amen!
