“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” — 2 Corinthians 9:8
I have been known to use absolute words out of context and for me it was learned behavior. For instance, ‘you never take out the trash,’ ‘you are always in trouble,’ or ‘You will never amount anything.’ In rooms AA, we were trained to never say never, or this is a disease that will be with always.
In this, changing, confusing, inconsistent world there is not much to be certain. In fact, the one thing that you can be certain, is uncertainties. In the natural sense, we are limited. But God!
In this verse alone:
All Grace abound to you
Having All things
At All times Abound in Every good work.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” — (Matthew 19:26)
“Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You.” (Jeremiah 32:17)
God is our absolute, and believers can be confident because He is faithful. Our confidence is not in our own strength; the exact opposite. As we surrender to Him, there is safety, healing, and a level of trustworthiness that is not found in the parameters of this world. His absolute Word transcends all of our reason and there is rest and peace In His unchanging nature. God is Absolute.
