The Nation / A God who can do everything

What is big or small, or how much or how little are relative questions. We judge things from our ability or perspective. For a poor person, certain economic amounts could be enormous and unattainable and for a rich person, they are probably nothing. For God nothing is so great or so abundant as not to be able to reach it. Let us trust in God, not in our strength.

We have a God who is too great in whom we can trust, but many times, because we do not know him, we live limited to achieving things with our strength or merely in the natural plane.

We have to know who the Bible says God is and live up to our Father and Creator.

There are too many believers who are frustrated, faithless and hopeless, unmotivated, discouraged, carnal, and frustrated that they do not fully know and trust God. Neither can they see supernatural things in their lives, achieve extraordinary victories, conquer unattainable goals, or glorify God the Father with their lives.

In the Old Testament, all the songs and psalms recounted the attributes of God, so that the people would know and it would be easier for them to memorize who their God was.

In the New Testament, Jesus mentions God the Father more than two hundred times in his earthly ministry. Our Lord Jesus Christ taught that God is spirit (John 4:24), that he is omnipotent (Matthew 19:26), that he is omniscient (Matthew 10:29), that he is holy (John 17:11), just (John 17: 25), loving (John 3:16), and good (Matthew 5:26).

Theologian W. Graham said, “But the outstanding truth that Christ taught about God is that He is the Father. This term, applied to Him, occurs 189 times in all. In Matthew, 44 times; in Mark, 4; in Luke, 17 times and in John, 124 times.”

For the true believer, for the one who was truly born again and has God as his Father, learning from Him and knowing Him will be more necessary than drinking water when thirsty. The psalmist said: “As a servant pants for streams of water, so he cries for you, O God, my soul. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God” (Psalm 40:1-2).

God is the Father of all life. In Psalm 36:9 he says, “For with you is the spring of life; In your light we will see the light”.

In Acts 17:24-25, it says, “The God who made the world and all things in it…to whom he gives to all life and breath and all things…”

“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament proclaims his handiwork” (Psalm 19:1). And what is the treatment of this immense God with his children? Is he a distant or near God? Did he create everything and abandon it to his fate or does he care about his creation?

We see that, although God is the creator of everything, He is the father of those who believe and trust in Him. It also says 1 John 3:1, “Behold what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God…” . God is your Father.

That God who created such immense and extraordinary things lives in us. “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him” (Jn. 14:23).

That God keeps you: “My Father who gave them to me is greater than all, and no one can snatch them out of the Father’s hand” (John 10:29).

Love the believer: “And Jesus Christ our Lord himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope by grace” (2 Thess. 2:16).

Comfort the believer: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort” (2 Cor. 1:3).

Give peace to the believer. The letters of Romans, 1 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians and Titus all begin by saying in their first verses: “Grace be to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.”
