Unto Him Who is Able

Friday, I prepared my Sunday School lesson for parents of teens based on the scripture, Ephesians 3:20:

Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us…Unto Him be the glory!

As a parent or mother, a wife, business person, whoever you are, you will face circumstances far above your ability to handle.  You can bank on it.  There is a war being waged daily against you.

The war is waged by an enemy speaking subtly destructive messages you will hear as thoughts in your mind.   Such thoughts may include variations on the theme of:  “The situation is hopeless, you are hopeless, things will never change, you are a failure, you might as well give up, why bother, etc.

Don’t listen to this.  Resist these lies.  Stand on the truth.

A modern paraphrase of Ephesians 3:20 may be just what you need to hear today.

When you are the neediest, He is the most sufficient.  When you are completely helpless, He is the most helpful.  When you feel totally dependent, He is absolutely dependable.  When you are the weakest, He is the most able.  When you are the most alone, He is intimately present.  When you feel you are the least, He is the greatest.  When you feel the most useless, He is preparing you.  When it is the darkest, He is the only Light you need.  When you feel th least secure, He is your Rock and Fortress.  When you are the most humble, He is most gracious.

Instead of being discouraged,  think upon the truth, dwell on it constantly.

He is able, as we surrender our cares and anxieties to Him.  Are you willing to submit to his complete care?
