"Can God really clean up the mess in my life? Am I so important to Him that He would hear my voice above all the other voices that call on Him every day? Do I make a difference to Him when so many others seem to have more significant issues or important roles than I? Should I bother Him at all if I don't have much faith? Can God do a few miracles for me – insignificant me? If I don't have money to give, will He still hear me?"
We often hear of God's power but question whether or not He can do what He says He is able to do. Sometimes when we ask the question can God we do so with hope and other times with hopelessness, even resignation, wondering if He really is a can do God!
In Psalm 78:19 our writer makes an interesting statement: "They spoke against God" because they questioned His ability when the Israelites who were walking in the wilderness had no food. They even asked, "Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?" They questioned God's ability to do something when they saw nothing. But God can do anything with nothing. Perhaps they forgot about Creation: "In the beginning God created" everything – and He did it from nothing. Nothing!
God has unlimited resources and power that exceed anything we can imagine. And we must never forget that it is combined with His unlimited love! So, when we add His resources to His power and mix in His love then add His wisdom with the plan He has laid out for each of us, it is not "CAN GOD?” – it is GOD CAN! Our God is a CAN DO GOD!
Prayer: Father, may we accept the fact that our prayers go unanswered because we lack faith in You or that we have abandoned You and Your teachings. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: They spoke against God; they said, “Can God really spread a table in the wilderness?” Psalm 78:19
