The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.
(Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV))
He is mighty to save!
Think about that simple, yet powerful statement.
Would your faith be any different if this were not true? Would you even possess a faith if this were not true? We proclaim that our God is mighty to save, yet, all too often we don’t live like we believe it. It is the very foundation of our faith, for without believing that God can save us, we would not even be able to rest assured in the grace and mercy freely given to us at the cross. Without believing that God is mighty to save, Jesus’ death on the cross would be meaningless. If you don’t believe that our God is mighty to save, then you probably doubt that the resurrection ever took place even though thousands of people witnessed Jesus back among the living.
Why do we put limits on God? Why do we try to put Him in a box that is bounded by our limited understanding?
Stop for a moment and closely examine your understanding and comprehension of God’s abilities. Are you guilty of limiting Him because you can’t see beyond your own limitations?
Is your God might to save?
