God Is Willing

Father and childGod is not a genie in a bottle. He isn’t a captive that is obligated to fulfill our every wish and whim. God is not a jukebox.  He isn’t a machine that grants us our personal selections on the basis of the appropriate deposit. God is not our servant. He isn’t bound to respond in subservience to our commands. He will not be manipulated. He will not be controlled. He will not be subjugated. He is all-powerful. He is all-knowing. He is the One for whom nothing is too difficult, the One for whom absolutely nothing is impossible. He is Master. He is Lord. He is God. And He is also our Father. Think about that last one for a moment. God is your Father. You are His child. You have a unique relationship with the Creator of the entire universe, one that is founded upon selection, adoption, and love. He is NOT cruel. He is NOT capricious. He is NOT uncaring. And in that capacity He is more than willing to give you the things that you need. No matter your current situation you can rest in His love. If something is seemingly being withheld, if a need is seemingly being ignored, or if a prayer is seemingly going unanswered, don’t lose heart. He has a reason. He has a plan. This morning I want you to remind yourself that not only is the all-powerful God able but also the all-loving Father is willing. Hold fast to Him in faith.  He will never fail His children.
