Power vs. Person

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” -2 Corinthians 9:8

“God is able”-Did you catch that in the verse? This week as I’ve thought through the question, “Do I believe He cares?” I came across this verse and it got me to thinking about another question-“Do I believe He is able?” This time the answer…Yes!

Then why the disconnect between believing He is able and not believing He cares. Here’s what I wrote in my journal-

God is able-Do I believe He can? Yes. Do I believe He cares? Not sure. I trust more in His Power than His Person. What if God saved me and that was it? Would I be able to love Him? Would that moment on Calvary be enough? His character was revealed-Who He is-That should be enough without another blessing. Father, help me to believe in Who you are more than what You can do!

That’s my prayer. That I will love God, even now in the uncertainties, because of Who He is not because of what He can do. I want to believe He cares because His grace overwhelms me!
