 He is Able
This phrase answers the question “Is anything too difficult for the LORD?” (Ge 18:14-note) Below is a simple Sola Scriptura compilation based on the phrase GOD IS ABLE. As as aside, Buddha said “he is able who believes he is able.” If Buddha had capitalized the second “He,” his saying would have been spot on. Believers are able, ONLY because HE IS ABLE and because He has graciously granted each us our eternally indwelling supernatural “Enabler,” the Holy Spirit.

It is notable that every occurrence of ABLE in the passages below is related to the Greek word dunamis/dynamis (word study) (The root of English words dynamic, dynamo, dynamic). Dynamis speaks of inherent ability or power to accomplish a task or goal. May our Father strengthen you with power (dynamis) through His Spirit in your inner being (Eph 3:16-note), as you meditate on what GOD IS ABLE to accomplish in and through you, His beloved son or daughter (1Th 1:4-note)….

“There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One WHO IS ABLE to save and to destroy and IS ABLE to humble those who walk in pride. Do not fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him WHO IS ABLE to destroy both soul and body in hell (for) GOD IS ABLE from these stones to raise up children to Abraham (and) IS ABLE to graft them in again. (Abraham) considered that GOD IS ABLE to raise men even from the dead. Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the WORD implanted, WHICH IS ABLE to save your souls, (for) HE IS ABLE to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them (and by) the WORD OF HIS GRACE IS ABLE to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” (Jas 4:12=note, Da 4:37-note, Mt 10:28-note, Mt 3:9-note, Ro 11:23-note, Heb 11:19-note, Jas 1:21-note, Heb 7:25-note, Acts 20:32-note)

GOD IS ABLE to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed. Since He (Jesus) Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, HE IS ABLE to come to the aid of (boetheo = literally to run to us upon hearing our cry!) those who are being tempted (tested). HE IS ABLE to guard (phulasso) what (we) have entrusted to Him UNTIL THAT DAY (which includes) our citizenship in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with His glorious body, according to the working whereby HE IS ABLE even to subject all things to Himself.” (2Cor 9:8-note, Heb 2:18-note, 2Ti 1:12-note, Php 3:20-21KJV-note)

Now to HIM WHO IS ABLE to establish you by my Gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, (and) IS ABLE to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy (and) IS ABLE to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power (dynamis) that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” (Ro 16:26note, Jude 24-note, Eph 3:20-21-note)

Beloved, remember that whatever you are experiencing this DAY, there is coming a better DAY, a GLORIOUS DAY, because our GOD IS ABLE “to guard what we have entrusted to Him UNTIL THAT DAY!” 

Sing praises to God, sing praises. 
Sing praises to our King, sing praises. (
Ps 47:6-note)

Glorious Day by Casting Crowns

One DAY when Heaven was filled with His praises
One DAY when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin
Dwelt among men, my Example is He
Word became flesh and the Light shined among us…
His glory revealed

Living He loved me. Dying He saved me.
Buried He carried my sins far away!
Rising He justified! Freely forever!
One DAY He’s coming! 

One DAY they led Him up Calvary’s mountain.
One DAY they nailed Him to die on a tree.
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He.
Hands that healed nations,
Stretched out on a tree
Took the nails for me!

One DAY the grave could seal Him no longer.
One DAY the stone rolled away from the door.
Then He arose, over death He had conquered.
Now He’s ascended, my Lord evermore.
Death could not hold Him!
The grave could not keep Him,
From rising again!

One DAY the trumpet will sound for His coming!
One DAY the skies with His glory will shine.
Wonderful DAY, my Beloved One bringing!
My Savior, Jesus, is mine!
