"They can do anything!"

You have probably heard it said about someone, "They can do anything!"  

I know someone like that.  She is incredibly intelligent, easily one of the most intelligent persons I have ever met.  She has great technical knowledge, but she is also extremely creative.  She draws, she sews, she cooks, she can make a cake look like anything you would like.  If there were a fine arts museum for decorated cakes, hers would be the centerpieces.

It is comforting to know someone like that.  I have said more than once, when a situation came up that perplexed us, "I bet Jessica knows how to do it!' 

Jessica not only knows how to do the things she knows how to do (she even repairs airplane engines!) but she does them well.  This is perhaps the most important point. . .she doesn't do things with mediocrity, she does them well. . .very well.

There is Someone else is our lives who not only knows everything --literally everything-- but also does everything He does perfectly.  Our Lord Jesus knows everything, "Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite," (Psalms 147:5.)  He knows, and everything He does is perfect, "As for God, His way is perfect, "(2 Samuel 22:31.)

It reminds me of the great hymn by Fanny Crosby which ends with the line, "Jesus doeth all things well."

All The Way my Savior Leads Me
by Fanny Crosby

All the way my Savior leads me;
What have I to ask beside?

Can I doubt His tender mercy,

Who through life has been my Guide?
Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know, whate’er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well;
For I know, whate’er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well.
