Ephesians 3:20 - 21 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Here Paul, the great Apostle, is showing that God wants to answer prayer super abundantly above all that we can ask or think. This is how God thinks about us. According to his power that is at work within us. He has put His own power to work in us. On a daily basis we need to let that power work through us to accomplish all that He wants to do with us and for us.
2 Pet 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
He does far more than we can ask.
Psalm 50:10 - 11 Living Bible For all the animals of field and forest are mine! The cattle on a thousand hills! And all the birds upon the mountains!
God knows what is best for all of us. Sometimes our ideas and wants are not what He has in mind. You will understand His provision better by assessing what He has already given you, rather than continually reaching out for the things you want. You can miss the blessing of today by being preoccupied with tomorrow. Receive what He has for you today and know that He still has enough for tomorrow. You can trust God to supply your needs for today and if and when your needs are more tomorrow, His supply will be greater then also.
Ephesians 3:20 Living Bible Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of - infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.
We must learn how to worship God and in deep adoration, giving glory to Him until your heart learns how to believe in His ability to supply above and beyond all that we can ask for, dream about or even think on. Faith in God’s ability and power to supply your need comes as He teaches you the abiding presence of Christ in you.
Can you just think about those words for a moment.
It is His mighty power that is at work in us causing us to be able to believe that He is able to do far more than we would dare to ask, or even dream about, beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts and hopes.
What a super over and above prayer answering God He is!
Have a super-abundant week this week!
