All Things

God can do all things. There are countless passages in the Bible about
amazing things God has done. The Exodus is a good example. God rescued the
Israelites, along with many other people, from the ruthless rulers who had
enslaved them in Egypt. God sent plagues until Pharaoh let the people go,
and then God went ahead of His people in a pillar of fire and cloud to
guide and protect them. When Pharaoh’s army came after them, God made a
path through the Red Sea by piling up the water so His people could walk
through on dry ground! It’s just crazy to think about. Think about the
sea; have you ever made piles of water while at the beach? Of course not!
Only God can. God can do all things. In Joshua 6, the Israelites faced off
with Jericho. The people of Jericho were already scared of the Israelites.
They were really scared of God, because they had heard about how God parted
the Red Sea for His people. Neither the Israelites nor anybody are anything
without God. He told Joshua to lead the Israelite army around the city of
Jericho once each day for six days. On the seventh day, God told Joshua to
march around seven times. Joshua and the people listened, and the walls
fell! God can do all things. In John 11, when Jesus arrived at His friends’
home, Lazarus had been dead for four days. Both Mary and Martha told Jesus
that their brother Lazarus would have gotten better from his sickness if
Jesus had been there. Jesus replied, “Your brother will rise again” (verse
23). Martha thought Jesus meant Lazarus would rise on Resurrection
Day—which is the day of Jesus’s second coming when everyone will rise from
the dead and those who believe in Jesus will live with Him forever. Later
in the passage, Jesus was with Martha at Lazarus’s grave. Jesus told her to
roll the stone away. She had no idea what Jesus was doing, but she obeyed.
Then Jesus prayed out loud to God, and Lazarus walked out of the grave when
Jesus commanded! God can do all things. • Josh Wager • Do you have a
favorite story about something amazing God has done, either from the Bible
or from your own life? • If you want to dig deeper, read Exodus 1:8-22,
12:37-38, 13:17”“14:31, 15:8; and Joshua 2:1-24, 6:1-20. Jesus looked at
them and said, “ with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
