11 Things God is able to do


Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us. The word “Able” is translated from the word dunatos (in turn from dunamai) which refers to the power one has by virtue of inherent ability and resources. “Able” describes that which has sufficient or necessary power, means, skill, or resources to accomplish an objective. I am completely persuaded that God is Able God is able to create something out of nothing God is able from these stones to raise up children. Matthew 3:9 God is able to make all grace abound to you God is able to make all grace abound to you… having all-sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 God is able to deliver God whom we serve is able to save us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will carry us out of your hand… Daniel 3:17 God is able to give you strength to …

Is there a “Balm” in Edgard Allan Poe’s Raven?


Jeremiah 8:22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

From the experience his disciples had with him, leaving them with this question – “who is this man” to the speculations of his enemies trying to paint him as an imposter, a homosexual and a weirdo. But the question Jesus himself asked in our title couldn’t be more pertinent or well placed. I don’t think anyone other than those who walked, talked, touched, and had their lives completely transformed by this Jesus could best answer the question.
