I have been studying the word “able” in the Bible. I am almost done, but here is the Scripture I studied:
Hebrews 2:18 “Because He Himself suffered when he was tempted, He is ABLE to help those who are being tempted.”
We are not ALONE! Jesus Himself knows our weakness and He is able to help us
It is when we feel we don’t “fit” that God can really use us. We depend on Him totally to walk us through our circumstances. Who better than our Creator to show us where we “fit”? The pot does not say to the potter, “I am not fit to be a soup tureen, I am more of a water pitcher sort of vessel.” Although, I may have said such a thing to the Lord in my life.
Just like we, as moms, see our children go through circumstances that happen to us when
we were children…we can HELP them through the pain and suffering. We know their anguish and we can lovingly teach them a better way! All we have to do is draw near to God and ask for help. Just as we would take our child into our arms, God Himself draws us close and keeps us under his wing so that we can feel and hear His
heartbeat and the
warmth of His protection. Amen!
“Therefore He is ABLE to save completely those who come to God through him, because He always lives to intercede for them.”
The word -completely- jumped out at me. My Bible shows the word “forever” in a footnote for the word completely. That made me think about heaven. He saves Debbie completely and forever when Debbie comes to God through Jesus (a condition to be met on my part). Heaven will be without end….I will be with my family, who I do not get to see every day here on earth! But in heaven….. : D Praise God!
