GOD IS ABLE!(Part 3)
God is able Now! He is not only the God of the past and the God of the future but also of the NOW!!! NOW IS NOW!!! Sometimes the NOW is not that easy to deal with. We would rather deal with the past or the future! But at times the crisis I want resolved is in the NOW!!! The now is where the rubber meets the road!
When Lazarus died Jesus did not come right away but he came a little bit later. By Then Lazarus’ body had been in the grave for 4days! Obviously it was in a bad state of decomposition and stinking pretty bad!
Martha said to the Lord Jesus Christ “If thou hadst been here, my brother would have not died”
Even though she spoke of the NOW when she said “But I know, that even NOW, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee” (John 11:22) she did not really mean the real NOW because when Jesus tried to reassure her about the NOW, she quickly rushed into the future by saying “I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day” John 11:24
This was in reference to the words of the Lord Jesus Christ “Thy Brother shall rise again” (John 11:23) By this statement Jest Christ meant that Lazarus would rise back to life NOW!!! He was talking of the REAL NOW!!!
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in (times) of trouble.Psalm 46:1 This verse is talking about the REAL NOW! God is present NOW! It is in the now when I am feeling the pain! It is in the now that I need that miracle! NOW!!!
The Jesus Christ told Martha “ I am (NOW!!!) the resurrection,and the life…”
Jesus had to be pretty specific when he cried out with a loud voice “Lazarus come forth”(John 11:43) And lo, Lazarus came forth! The decomposition ceased immediately. The bad smell disappeared! Oh the power of God in the NOW!!! God is able in the NOW!!! Even when he doesn’t do something in the now the capacity is always there!
Friend, God is in the NOW!!! That is why the Word of God says. For he that cometh to God MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS(HE EXISTS IN THE NOW AND IS ABLE NOW!!!) Hebrews 11:6
What is it that you are grappling with in the now? Call upon him NOW!!! In fact the Lord himself says, Call unto me,and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knewest not.Jeremiah 33:3
CALL UPON HIM NOW!!! GOD IS ABLE IN THE NOW OF YOUR EXISTENCE!!!
