Have you ever doubted how powerful God is?

What did you answer? Give yourself a minute to think.

If you answered no, then I want you to think about this for a minute. At first I said no also. I said to myself I would never ever doubt what God is capable of I know Him. He is powerful, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lord, my Comfort, my Refuge, my Strength, and my Joy, I would never doubt Him. After saying all of that, I will now admit the Truth, sometimes I doubt Him. Wait just a second!!!! Why would a Preacher ever admit He doubts God's Power???? Before you Judge and say I am not a good Christian or whatever else mean things Christians say about other Christians. Have you never doubted? My New Year resolution was to Start a Journal and keep up with it. My first entry I listed my fears in prayer that I could over come them this year. The Key Word there is I, because I cannot over come them. Today I sat here in my office I realized that My Fear is not my problem!!! My problem is I doubt God's Power. We serve a God who can take all of you little problems and destroy them!
Do you understand God's Power? Well Neither do I, But I do know what God calls Himself. In Exodus Chapter 3. God and Moses are talking. Moses ask God "If I go to the Israelites and say to them: The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they ask me 'What is His name?' what should i tell them!"
God replied and said, "I AM WHO I AM this is what you are to say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you."

God is the great I AM, He did deliver the Israelites from bondage and He will deliver you from anything that is holding you up from truly serving Him. The I AM into days language could transfer to say something like:
"My Marriage is Broken..." I AM THE GREAT COUNCILOR
"My ________ Is Sick..." I AM THE GREAT PHYSICIAN
"I Cannot Go On..." I AM YOUR STRENGTH
"I am scared of the future..." I AM THE ONE WHO HOLDS TOMORROW
God Is the ONE who Conquers OUR NEEDS.
Sometimes in life we make God our buddy. Or try to make Him whatever we Want Him to be. But the fact of the matter is, God is more than a buddy HE IS WHO HE IS. and I know that is more than we Want. So stop trying to fit God in to a Box or a Bubble because your box or bubble cannot handle His Great Power.

In Conclusion I want to add, We serve a God who is Powerful and we all doubt Him sometime in our actions. If we lived life not doubting God's Power then true revival would take place around us. People would start getting saved left and right, because Christians would stop acting like God is a figure only when we Want Him around. We would start realizing that we need Him at every turn in our lives. And if we act like He is with us (Which He is) then we would start doing what we and others claim to be impossible and realize that nothing is impossible with an all Powerful Savior.
So today I leave you with this. . . YOU BETTER PREACH!!!
