Mark 9:23 – “‘If You can?” Yeshua said to him. “All things are possible for one who believes!” TLV

Did you discover that once you became a follower of Jesus, you did not automatically begin trusting God with miracle-working faith for all your needs?  Maybe you still find it difficult to trust God for everything.  That in no way means you are not saved and a Christian.  It means that you are not or have not learned to exercise your faith to the fullest extent possible.  Please do not take that to mean I am saying I have mastered that.  I, like many or most believers, struggle from time to time.

There are four areas I believe it is important for us to consider and grasp in their fullness if we are to become more adept at trusting God for everything.  God wants us to walk by faith.  In fact, the Bible in Hebrews 11:6 informs us that “without faith, it is impossible to please God.”  It goes on to explain, “For the one who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”  TLV That is essential information and a challenge for every believer.

What are those four considerations?

  • We Need to Understand the Position of God.
  • We Should Consider the Success of God.
  • We Should Remind Ourselves That He Never Fails.
  • We Need to Consider the Reality that His Ministry is To and For You and Me.

First, God is the Creator.  He is not a god but ‘The Living God’ who created the heavens and the earth and all that is in and on it.  In Genesis 1:1 we are told, “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”  It did not happen via the Big Bang or osmosis; it was a definitive act of His will. 

In John 1:1-3 we are reminded, “In the beginning was the Word.[a] The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were made through Him, and apart from Him nothing was made that has come into being.” TLV

That brings us to three things we need to note regarding God, the Creator. He is Omnipotent.  He is All-Powerful.  He does not have Power, He is Power!  In Genesis 17:1 God declared Himself to be almighty.  In Genesis 18:14, the angel asked, “Is anything too hard for the LORD?”  In Deuteronomy 32:29, God declared that nothing and no one can deliver out of His hand.  In Isaiah 40;15, we are reminded that the nations are a mere drop in the bucket to God.  In Jeremiah 32:17 we find that God created the heavens and the earth by His Power.  Jesus said in Matthew 19:36 that with God all things are possible!

Everything that exists come only because He has allowed them to be.  All life is given and sustained by God.  Man’s existence is like a note on an organ, and it lasts only so long as God’s fingers are on the keys.  He is God!  He is All-Powerful.  He is All Power.  He is Omnipotent. 

He is Omnipresent.  He is unlimited by time or space.  He is every at once, even though we do not see Him, He is there!  Genesis 28:15 God declared, “I am with you and will keep you in all the places you go.”  In Joshua 2:11 we read the announcement that God is God in heaven and on the earth.  In Psalm 137:7, David asked, “Where can I go, and God not be there?”  Proverbs 15:3 declares that God’s eyes are in every place.  Jeremiah 23:24 asks, “Can anyone hide himself in secret places and God not see him.”  Why?  Because God fills the heaven and the earth.  There is no limitation on God!

God is Omniscient.  He knows everything.  1 Chronicles 28:9 tells us that God searches the hearts and understands the imaginations of the thoughts.  He knows our thoughts even before we think them consciously.  In Psalm 139:1, the Psalmists declared, “O LORD, you have searched me and known me.  You know when I sit down and when I get up.  You understand my thoughts afar off.”  In Job 42:2 we read, “I know that You (God) can do everything and that no thought can be withheld from You.”  And in Luke 16:15 we discover that God knows our hearts, therefore our minds and our thoughts.

God is perfect in every way.  That God, the Living Creator God who is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient is our God!  If that ever becomes a reality for us, we will find it easy or easier to trust Him more and more.

I will dig a little deeper in the next session.  Until then may the God of Peace comfort your hearts in Christ Jesus.  Have a fantastic day!
