—————————-Seeds Of Hope For Tuesday, July 20, 2021————————————-
CAN GOD REALLY?
“Can God really clean up the mess in my life? Am I so important to Him that He would hear my voice above all the other voices that call on Him every day? Do I make a difference to Him when so many others seem to have more significant issues or important roles than I? Should I bother Him at all if I don’t have much faith? Can God do a few miracles for me – insignificant me? If I don’t have money to give, will He still hear me?”
We often hear of God’s power but question whether or not He can do what He says He is able to do. Sometimes when we ask the question can God we do so with hope and other times with hopelessness, even resignation, wondering if He really is a can do God!
In Psalm 78:19 our writer makes an interesting statement: “They spoke against God” because they questioned His ability when the Israelites who were walking in the wilderness had no food. They even asked, “Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?” They questioned God’s ability to do something when they saw nothing. But God can do anything with nothing. Perhaps they forgot about Creation: “In the beginning God created” everything – and He did it from nothing. Nothing!
God has unlimited resources and power that exceed anything we can imagine. And we must never forget that it is combined with His unlimited love! So, when we add His resources to His power and mix in His love then add His wisdom with the plan He has laid out for each of us, it is not “CAN GOD?” – it is GOD CAN! Our God is a CAN DO GOD!
Prayer: Father, may we accept the fact that our prayers go unanswered because we lack faith in You or that we have abandoned You and Your teachings. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: They spoke against God; they said, “Can God really spread a table in the wilderness?” Psalm 78:19
If you enjoyed the devotional above, we have LOTS more! A special blog that collects all of the previous devotionals has been created so that you can easily find messages on any topic or Scripture.

Guido Prison Ministry
Won’t you pray about your involvement with our ministry to prisoners? We don’t send out bulk mailings to prisons for random distribution, but we add each prisoner to our mailing list as they request it. At present, we send out 2,300 packages to individuals in prison each month. Each day we receive letters from many, telling us how much our devotionals mean to them, and how they share them with their fellow inmates. We can send one prisoner material each month at the cost of $20 a year. That’s not a lot. Join us in this ministry to those that need it so much… the prisoners. Contact us at 912-685-2222 to become a partner in reaching out to those the Bible tells us not to forget. Go here to a special blog that collects prisoner testimonial letters that show the effects of this ministry and highlight the need!
