We cringe when we hear about the heir who inherited a fortune and squandered it all, or the person who was entrusted to carry on a famous legacy, only to soil the family name in disgrace. Sometimes people can literally be surrounded by things that others only dream of, yet fail to do anything worthwhile with them. Today we see a young man who grew up in the presence of God’s covenant promises, but he chose to mock it and walk away from it all.
He is Able!
We don’t serve a God who is “somewhat” able to do certain things. We don’t serve a God who is good at some things, but not so good at other things. Ephesians 3:20 tells us that God is able to do “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.” Whatever mountains you may be facing in your life, God has the power to move them. Nothing is too difficult for Him!
