What God Can Do
"I have given you a land for which you did not labor, and cities which you did not build, and you dwell in them; you eat of the vineyards and olive groves which you did not plant." Joshua 24:13 NKJV
The truth is that we have a hard time believing that God can take care of all our needs as He promised in the Scriptures that He would. And I sincerely wonder why. So we are struggling and trying to do so much by ourselves.
We read stories of divine provision in the Bible, they seem fantastic but we quickly tell ourselves that those were "Bible days". What exactly does that mean? That God is no more as active and powerful as He used to be? That the world has become more complicated for God to perform? Or that God is not as interested in the affairs of His children as He once was?
No! God is the same yesterday, today and forever! What He did yesterday in Bible days are nothing compared to what He is capable of doing today! He is omnipotent! He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. Jesus can still bring money out of the mouth of fishes; He still multiplies food; God can still give us lands we didn't labour for, and houses we did not build! All we have to do is believe.
