YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED AT

WHAT GOD COULD DO FOR YOU

Text: Ephesians 3:20-21

"Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abun-

dantly above all we ask or think, according to

the power that worketh in us,

Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus

throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."

Introduction-

Our God is a God with whom all things are

possible. If He wills it, it will happen. He

is able to do far more for us than most of us

can even imagine. He is

Omniscient-(all knowing)

Omnipresent-(everywhere present)

& Omnipotent-(all powerful)

Therefore, what He wills will come to pass. No

power exists that can keep it from happening.

His will is consistent with His nature and char-

acter, and it will never contradict His Word.

This truth was brought home to me recently at

a local restaurant, when as a group of ministers

we were meeting to listen to Dr. Van Horn teach

the January Bible Study. This took place in

Brookhaven, Mississippi, where I live. As I

listened to Dr. Van Horn, God began to enrich my

soul and feed me from His Word. He was teaching

the book of Genesis, and as my mind wandered, I

thought of the little boy who came to Jesus with

the five loaves and two fishes. D.L. Moody once

said-"God creates out of nothing; therefore, until

a man is nothing, God can make nothing out of him."

What the Lord impressed upon my mind was what

He can do with little, or nothing. The disciples

rebuked Jesus when He commanded them to bring the

fish and loaves to Him, and asked-"What are these

among so many?" With Jesus, it was enough, and

more than enough, because He fed the multitudes,

and there were twelve baskets left over above and

beyond what they needed! I was overwhelmed at

the greatness of God. He is able to do exceeding-

ly abundantly above all that we ask or think! It

was true with the disciples, and it is true with

us. If Jesus could take a meager amount of food,

and feed the multitudes with it, adding his bless-

ing, what could He do through us! 5,000 men, be-

sides women and children, sat down and all ate

until their hunger was completely satisfied, with

much left over. All from 5 loaves and 2 fishes!

WHEN THE LIVING GOD PUTS HIS HAND ON SOMETHING,

OR SOMEONE, MIRACLES HAPPEN!

Like the hymn writer, I say, "I stand amazed

in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene!" What

love! What power! What grace!

Now, I want to mention a few of the things

that the Bible says God is willing and able to

do for you.

I.First, GOD COULD & WILL SAVE YOU TO THE UTTERMOST-

Hebrews 7:25

"Wherefore, He is able also to save them to the

uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He

ever liveth to make intercession for them."

Our High Priest, the Lord Jesus Christ, will never

die, or cease to do His priestly work on our be-

half.

When God does something, He does it thoroughly

and completely. He doesn’t half-way save, or

half-way heal, or half-way meet our needs, no,

He supplies all our needs throught His riches

in Christ. He heals completely, and permanently.

Never did Jesus heal anyone and the sickness come

back on them, as some false "faith healers" teach.
