Often when faced with impossible situations, our mind starts for statements with the word of doubt - 'Can'.
Can I make it out of this?
Can we repay that debt?
Can I recover from this sickness?
The longer the situation persists, we tend to replace 'us' with God in those statements. We tend to forget his omnipotence and instead reduce him to our level
Can God help me make it out of this?
Can God help repay this debt?
Can God heal me from this sickness?
Even our prayers are seasoned with these words of unbelief. It is not that we do not believe in God's power. But rather we feel that this situation may be beyond his control
because it is out of ours.
We doubt God's ability because we are unaware of His timing. If things aren't working out as soon as we think we need them, our faith starts to waver.
But God did not call us out of Egypt to fall in the desert. Before every promised land, there lies a period of passing through the wilderness. If we lose our faith, we will end up wandering the desert longer than we were supposed to.
The Heroes of faith in the Bible went through many fiery trials. But they were able to overcome those obstacles simply by flipping their statements in their minds.
They went from being of a "Can God" mindset to a "God can" heart.
All the saints held onto the promises of God because they remembered what He had done for them in the past and that His track record had no signs of failure.
As we walk through these unstable times, let us remind ourselves that even in the face of situations where we cannot make a way out, God Can.
God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. Hebrews : 6:18
