God is Able

Title:  God is Able
Author:  Priscilla Shirer
Pages:  176
Year:  2013
Publisher:  B & H Books
As I was reading this book, one characteristic that I was blessed by was the transparent way Priscilla shared about what she believes, and in some cases, what she believes for others who are struggling or need to hear a truth.  She shares in one chapter that it took awhile for her to be captured by the truth.  What the author shares is about Who God is and not that He will give us all we want.  Do you know why?  If God gave us all we want, not only would we be spoiled, but we would be putting ourselves in a mess.  Like those who have help raise kids, taught kids or whatever, we all know that giving in to them isn’t the best for them.
God is able to do for us more than we can ever imagine.  He wants more for us than we can ever comprehend.  I am not talking about material things, but what matters most…the spiritual part of us.  Priscilla shares about perspective, especially those long nights where answers haven’t come yet and sleep hasn’t either or how about a long season in your life that is causing you to be weary and just putting one foot in front of the other takes a great amount of concentration? 
Wherever you are right now in life, whether good times or bad, physically okay or not, none of these things stops God from working.  The whole idea of God is Able is to remind us that when we can’t, that’s okay because God can.  Yet, if we remember that God can do above and beyond all that we ask or think, He will do it in ways that will surprise the socks off of you or maybe humble you.  I, too, experience the Wow moments of God working and the humble reminder that I was never meant to live dependent on my flesh or anyone else, just God.
