Most of us have heard the phrase, “Won’t He do it?!”. Most Christians when they hear that phrase they know exactly what you are stating. It is referring to God coming through for us in a particular situation in the past. Salvation for other family members. Getting the promotion on the job. God making provision in your life. Healing in your body. Or being spared from a bad accident.
Perhaps you were shown favor or mercy in an area of concern in your life. When we quote this phrase it means something different for all of us. It is a way of acknowledging “Oh by the way if I didn’t tell you, God did (fill in the blank) for me and/or my family!”.
We can all speak about some way that God provided for us in the past. But what about in a situation where God has not answered what we have prayed about. The manifestation of the resolve has not quite taken place yet. Now it leaves you asking the question, “Will He do It?”. That is usually where many people are.
They are right in the middle of Won’t He do it and Will He do it. As soon as we thank God for what He has done in the past, we are now looking forward to what He will do in the future. This is not necessarily bad. We should be asking God for wisdom and guidance for what to do next in our predicaments. Psalm 37:4-5 states, 4Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
The problem is that we don’t continue to thank Him for our daily provisions because we don’t yet see the change in this larger aspect.
Our focus is on the major things and not what is taken care of daily for us. Such as the ability to get up in the morning with your right mind. The fact that your children are healthy and have clothes on their backs and food to eat. These are very important but we can become unimpressed about those things and take them for granted.
How might your life change if you truly believed that God is on your side no matter what your outward circumstances?
When almost everything concerning your life seems to be spiraling downward, can you truly have the faith that God is for you?
Romans 8:31 (KJV) states, What shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
If you truly believed would you face all your challenges with confidence? Would you step out in faith not knowing what will happen? Trusting that God will work it out for your good (Romans 8:28). If we felt that God was for us no matter what, we could stand firm and say, “He will do it! I don’t exactly know how but I know He will”.
