Summary: God is able to perform miracles today. Whatever our circumstances, situations or problems are today, we can trust our Heavenly Father to care, to bless, to move, to act, to deliver and to heal today. Dispel your doubts and focus your faith on God.
In many ways today is no different from any other day and perhaps that is where the problem is...
Our Sundays can feel so routine - our expectation is the same - being church together is something we can do on autopilot.
We know God is the same yesterday, today and forever - but we specifically set aside the fifth Sunday of the month as a Healing and Wholeness Sunday so that we can be reminded that God is still God and He is able to perform miracles today.
Whatever our circumstances, situations or problems are today, we can trust our Heavenly Father to care, to bless, to move, to act, to deliver, and to heal today.
God can bring healing and wholeness to your life today.
God can change your circumstances today.
God can work a miracle in your life today.
God is able to do more in your life and mine than we can hope or think or imagine.
Do you have faith that God can do the impossible in your life today?
Maybe you want to believe that the impossible could be possible in your circumstance or situation,
but if you are honest, you doubt if things will ever really change.
A man called William Jett wrote these words:
Doubt sees the obstacles
Faith sees the way,
Doubt sees the blackest night
Faith sees the day;
Doubt dreads to take a step
Faith soars on high;
Doubt questions, “Who believes?”
Faith answers, “I”
This morning, on this Healing and Wholeness Sunday, I want to encourage you to dispel your doubts and focus your faith on what God is able to do in your life.
There are many things we can not do in our own strength or our own ability remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 19:26 “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”
The things which are impossible for us in our own abilities are possible with God.
Where we cannot, God can, He can do the impossible.
When we pray according to God’s will all things are possible.
Perhaps our problem when we pray is we often put limits on what God can do.
Often we can think our problem or circumstance or situation is beyond the scope of God’s ability.
If we think that our problems are bigger than God is able or willing to handle, then we show a lack of faith in the God who loves us and cares for us.
Consider these words from Ephesians chapter 3: Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21 NKJV)
God is able to accomplish infinitely more or do exceeding abundantly more than we can ask or think.
Matthew Henry commenting on this truth wrote: “There is an inexhaustible fullness of grace and mercy in God, which the prayers of all the saints can never draw dry. Whatever we may ask, or think to ask, still God is still able to do more, abundantly more, exceedingly abundantly more. Open your mouth ever so wide, still he has the wherewithal to fill it.”
Today, God is able to do infinitely more in your life and mine than we can hope or think or imagine.
I have some simple advice for us this morning:
We need to Dispel our doubts and focus our faith on what God is able to do.
God is able to do the impossible.
When we trust God, when we allow Him to move, when we ask Him to work in our lives, when we allow the Holy Spirit to minister to us, when we allow God to do what only He can do, then we will experience His touch on our lives,
we will experience life-changing transformation, we will experience miracles.
God can just speak a Word, move by the Power of His Word and His Spirit, and our lives can be transformed.
Our God is the same God that spoke this universe into existence.
Our God is the God that hung the stars in space.
Our God is the God that formed you in your mothers womb.
Our God is the God that knows you better than you know yourself.
Our God is the God who loves you and cares for you and has promised never to leave or forsake you.
Our God is the God of miracles and He can heal today.
Whatever situation, circumstance, trial, problem, illness, relationship issue, or problem you have, or another member of your family has, or a friend has, God can make a difference today.
He can heal and restore – He can make the broken whole, the sick well, God can heal today.
