He IS Able...

Hi Friends~

Well, we have read the Introduction from "My All in All" by Mr. Robert J. Morgan over the last 3 posts.  It has been very inspiring and educational.  It has opened so man doors for us to start to look into this new year...2012.  (Who can believe that?  2012!)

Today, I really want to share the first Devotion of the book.  As soon as you read it, you will see why it was so important that I share this with you.  It is a direct quote from "My All in All" published by B&H Books.

"God is able to make all grace abound toward you;
that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things,
may abound to every good work."  (2 Corinthians 9:8 KJV)

Missionary Amy Carmichael attended a meeting featuring the renowned preacher Dr. Andrew Bonar.  "He was very old and could not speak very plainly or strongly," she recalled.  "The hall was full, and I was near the back.  I could not catch a single word he said, except this word all.  He read 2 Corinthians 9:8 and he put every bit of strength he had into it, so that the one word rang out--all--always--all--all.  I have forgotten thousands of great sermons, but that's "all" I have never forgotten, and it has helped me countless times."

The context of this Verse involves giving to the Lord's work, yet the promise is larger than its context.  The words God is able represent a recurring divine promise:

**  He is able to establish us  (Rom. 16:25)

**  He is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or think (Eph. 3:20)

**  He is able to keep what we have committed to Him  (2 Timothy 1:12)

**  He is able to aid us in temptation  (Heb. 2:18)

**  He is able to keep us from falling  (Jude 24)

**  He is able to deliver us (Daniel 3:17)

**  And He is able to make all grace aboud to us in all ways at all times for all things.

Our God IS Able!  Throughout this year, He isn't going to impart some grace or some sufficiency in some things for some good works.  It's all--all--all!


He IS Able!   That is a great thing to remember when you think your problems are too small for Him to notice, or too big for Him.  There is nothing He can not do!  (Sorry for the double negative!)  He is there for you no matter what!  You matter to Him!  He loves you more than anyone, and He has the best path set for your life, if only we will follow Him.

He IS Able! is also the name of a blog that has a prayer team to pray for your needs,  we're here to encourage you to encourage others, and for all of us to learn how to lead a Christ filled life together, learning more about Him, and perhaps sharing a few crafts along the way!

We are currently looking for Prayer Team Members and someone who would enjoy writing one post a month.  The topic is about the different women of the Bible.  If you are interested in being a part of this blog, perhaps sharing a tutorial, or sharing about a specific Scripture, your Testimony of when you came to know the Lord please let us know either in the comment section or email Traci at  And, please let us know if you have anything in particular that you would like to learn about in this coming year!

He IS Able!
