Capable: how many of you think God is capable? Really capable, of anything. Sometimes we secretly don't believe it with our whole hearts. We bring Him tattered lives, messed up by our sin, and think He can only do so much to 'fix us up.' He knows this, by the way. He's...

All knowing. He knows what you did. And when, where, and why. And the impact it has had on you and others. He knows the consequences. Yes, He's grieved by the sin, but still reaches out to you. How could this be? Well, He's oh-so-very...

Loving! Duh. He sent His only Son to die for us, for you. Why else would He do that? Yep, He loves you. Lots. All the time. He just wants to hug you close to Himself, close enough to hear your smallest whisper, because He's always...

Listening. He hears every cry, every confession, every utterance of repentance. He loves it when you reach out to Him, and is eager to forgive you, rather than punish. Why? Because He's...

Good. This shouldn't be news to any of us. God is good. He's also...

Omnipotent--has all power. Capable, loving, listening, good. Wow. God is something else. He must be...

Divine. Can He see a resolution to a problem that you can't? Can He make beauty out of ashes? You bet your bippee. Will He always restore everything to exactly the way it was before the sin? Don't bet any bippees on that. Sin can and does carry consequences, as King David found. Even though he pleaded with God to spare the child that resulted from his adulterous union with Bathsheba, the child died. This is a tough one, and hard to understand. Many things we experience as a result of our sin are tough, and hurt, and make us ask THE question, "Why?" The best answer I know, which takes trust, trust, trust, is...

He is perfect, including His judgment. We may not like it, or be able to comprehend His purposes, but His judgment is, indeed, perfect. He is able to see 'the big picture,' in ways that we cannot. Why? Because He's big. He's huge. He could even be called...

Enormous! He created the earth, the galaxy, the universe. That's a whole lot of large stuff! Is there anything He can't do? I heard somewhere that He's...

Incapable of failure. When we ask for His forgiveness, then hand over to Him the mess we've made, are things just going to get worse? No way, dudes and dudettes! As the little chorus concludes, "I am weak, but He is..."

Strong! And able to untangle the rattiest spaghetti-like sadness you can create. He can soften those hearts you thought would always be hardened against you. He can and will reshape you into the person He needs you to be. He can create good from your sin, and peace from your chaos. Why would He do all this, when you don't 'deserve' it? He's...

Merciful!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
