God is Able

You either believe that God is sovereign and allows or causes all that happens, or you believe in a god of limited power.  You can't have it both ways.  The only limits on God are those He placed upon Himself.  For example, God chose to give man free will although He knew that freedom would be abused.  He even planned a way of redemption for mankind when they turned from their selfish pursuit of fulfillment without Him and cried out to Him.
Today in America the mindset seems to be that if we just put the right party in office all will be well.  It has been well documented that both major parties have contributed to the mess we are in today.  The problem in America is not political, it is spiritual.  Unless and until there is a spiritual awakening in America our situation will only worsen.
It saddens me to read and hear those who claim to be Christ-followers who side with genocide (abortion on demand) breaking ranks with Israel, the people of God, and copying the politics of primarily godless countries who have adopted socialism.  Much of their rhetoric is hate-filled toward anyone who disagrees with them.  I think we have much to learn from the apostle Paul who suffered for the cause of Christ, but never lost his faith that God was able to turn his circumstances in the blink of an eye.  God rewarded his trust by having the Roman government provide house arrest for him for several years where he had the freedom to receive people in his home and even could leave his home in the company of an assigned soldier (many of whom came to Christ as they guarded Paul).  He saw success which could only be explained by saying "God did it."
I remember seeing a bumper sticker years ago that read, "My God is not dead.  Sorry about yours."  The God of the Bible lives.  His Son, Jesus Christ is THE exclusive way of salvation.  His people, Israel WILL return to Him and He has declared that those who support Israel will be blessed.
My God is able...to change people, nations and governments.
