GOD DOES FAR MORE THAN WE CAN EVER ASK OR THINK!
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. —Ephesians 3
Do you limit God? Are you expectant of what He will do and is doing in and through your life? Do you ponder His greatness? Are you considering the work He is doing on this planet? Do you think about what He does every day to sustain life and keep the universe in order? Do you truly believe that He “is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us?” “The power at work WITHIN us!”
It is not by our own power that we can do His will— “’Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” When we know Jesus “it is God who works in (us) to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose” (Philippians 2:13). And so in His Church He is the One who is to receive all glory throughout all generations past, present and future.
Do we understand that we are utterly helpless without Him? But “I can do all things through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13). “If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to My Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, proving yourselves to be My disciples” (John 15:7-8). That is His desire for us! Do we have that desire? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCKlSdlhFws
Dear Father this is my desire that I would bring You glory and that I would encourage Your Church to bring You glory. Oh, may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus my King. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuIgESOTRbw
