God Almighty will do For You

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3: 30

We all love to be at the receiving end, whether it is from our parents, friends or any other person. We have the same attitude towards God as well. When we have a pressing need we get down on to our knees and ask God to provide or to heal or to bless us. When we receive whatever we had asked for, we are thrilled and we rejoice in God and His love. What happens when you don’t receive what you had asked for! Do you get disappointed? Do you feel that God has not heard you at all! Well some of you get dejected and mess up your lives with wrong choices. Some even doubt the presence of God and underestimate his power and glory.

God’s Word records the true nature of man and the awesome character of God, for us to learn and apply to our lives. God appeared to Abraham and told him to leave his country, his people and his father’s household. God also promised Abraham “I will make you into a great nation and will bless you; I will make your name great and you will be a blessing….” (Genesis 12: 2,3). Abraham obeyed God’s word and moved out from his comfortable zone to an unknown destination. Once again God appeared to Abraham and said “….…I will make your offspring as the dust of the earth……” (Genesis 13: 14-17). How long did Abraham have to wait to see the promises of God come true in his life? Were his prayers answered immediately? How did Abraham handle the situation?

Never override God’s Plan:

Abraham was a human just like us. He had the promise of God in his hand, believed it wholeheartedly. Yet he and his wife Sarah were under great pressure to have a child as he was very old and Sarah was past the age of child bearing. Genesis 15:2 quotes what Abraham says to God, “O Sovereign Lord! What can you give me since I remain childless….”. Look at the disappointment in his words. His wife’s physical condition made it very clear to Abraham that they both could never have a child of their own. So he makes his own plan. He goes on to tell God that his household servant Eliezer would be his heir. Look at Abraham’s desperation, and see how he opens up to God, not even to his wife about his disappointments and decisions. Friends, dejections and disappointments can drive you to do the unthinkable. Those choices can never align with God’s plan. God’s plan for you means blessings, prosperity, health, peace, joy and every good thing. He doesn’t want you to settle for ordinary things, but trust me he always has the best in store for you.
