Isaiah 7:9 NLT: Israel is no stronger than its capital, Samaria, and Samaria is no stronger than its king, Pekah son of Remaliah. Unless your faith is firm, I cannot make you stand firm.”
We have been taught over the years that there is nothing God cannot do. Meaning that He can do all things. But I am putting it to you today that there are things that God can actually not do. He cannot lie, He cannot change, He cannot do evil, He cannot do injustice, and He cannot decide to die. Not that He does not want to, but He cannot do it.
Today, we see God saying to the people Israel that unless their faith is firm, He cannot make them stand firm. God cannot help a man who does not believe in Him. The Bible says in John 3:18 “He who believe in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” In another scripture, the Bible says that whosoever wants to come to God, must believe that He exists. Hebrews 11:6.
My beloved friend in Christ, the call today is for you to have complete trust in God. Only then can he step into your life and take charge of your life. You are blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I trust in the Lord my God.
Lord Jesus, I believe in you. Make me stand firm in the faith no matter what comes up against me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
