Summary: We all know that God is able to do all things. But do we really believe it anymore? We have got to regain the child-like faith we once had that believes that God REALLY IS able to do anything!

STAND & READ - Ephesians 3:20-21

?Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, [21] to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.?

?Oh Yes?God Can!?

Prayer?

ILLUSTRATION:

Do you remember when you were a child?

Maybe you did what many children do today, and as you sometimes see them do on television?

One kid will say to the other kid?My daddy can beat up your daddy!

No way! The other kid screams?MY daddy can beat yours up!

Well?my daddy is stronger than your daddy! NO WAY?my daddy is bigger than your daddy and can crush your daddy?your daddy doesn?t even have a nice car!

And on and on the argument goes with these kids?bickering and fighting with one another about whose dad is bigger?better?and more able!

Well?it brings me to the thought that we should have concerning our HEAVENLY Father?

-Shouldn?t we too be bragging about how BIG?and AWESOME?and STRONGER our Daddy is in reference to anyone else?s ?daddy??or god of their life?

I cannot help but think to myself about how any of us feel about God?

What I mean is?

-Do we really think that God is GREAT?ALL POWERFUL?and ABLE TO DO ALL THINGS???

-Are we, as God?s children convinced that ?our daddy? can do ANYTHING?

That He can beat anything?conquer anything?and gain victory over all things?making us very proud to have Him as our Father. Do we even believe this anymore?

This is the feeling of Pride and Admiration that we should have about our Father in Heaven?

-So that when the ?bully of our soul? comes against us, making his boasts in himself?we are able to say??No?No?Only GOD Can!?

-And when the accuser tells us that God can?t?we should say with confidence??OH YES! GOD CAN!!!?

Our God is Bigger?

SAY??Oh Yes?God CAN!?

I will ask you, Can God do anything? You respond with, ?Oh Yes?God CAN!?

ILLUSTRATION:

The church used to sing an old song that said?

?My God is bigger than all my problems?bigger than all my fears.

My God is bigger than any mountain, I can or cannot see.

He?s bigger than all my questions?bigger than all my needs.

My God is bigger than any mountain, I can or cannot see!?

Is it true or false?can God throw the mountain into the sea? TRUE!

Is it true or false?can God give us the victory in ALL things? TRUE!

Is it true or false?is God able to do exceeding abundantly beyond what we can dream, think or imagine? TRUE!

YES?my friends?and co-laborers in the faith?GOD CAN DO ALL THINGS!!!

ILLUSTRATION:

The song, Ah, Lord God

The chorus of it says?

?Nothing is to difficult for thee?nothing is to difficult for thee.

Great and Mighty God?great in counsel and mighty in deed!

Nothing?nothing?absolutely nothing?nothing is to difficult for thee!?

Another song, but the words are found in Scripture is?

Jeremiah 32:27

"Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?"

Can God do anything? ?Response?

***************************************

However?there is a nemesis!

The nemesis, which comes against our faith in God and belief that He is able to actually do all things is?

DOUBT!

DOUBT can kill any hope?any belief?any trust?and any faith that God can do all things.

-And even the smallest amount of doubt can destroy it all.

-As the Bible tells us in Gal. 5:9, ?A little leaven, leavens the whole lump!?

In our terms today??One bad apple, spoils the whole bunch.?

We cannot allow for ourselves to even begin to question the goodness of God in His being able to do all things!

-Even when it looks impossible?God is in the business of doing the impossible.

-Even though it may seem as though there are NO possibilities for you?God makes of habit of making possibilities in the middle of impossible situations.

-Even though you may not be able to come up with a solution?Go does have one?there is no doubt about that!

Matthew 21:21

?And Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith, and do not doubt, you shall not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ’Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it shall happen.?

ILLUSTRATION:

In the year 1870, the Methodist Churches in Indiana were having their annual conference. At one point, the president of the college were they were meeting addressed the group and told them they were living in a very exciting age. He said he believed that they were coming into a time of great inventions and that he believed, for example, that men would some day fly through the air like birds.
