Day 4 of 50 Days of Prayer- More than You Can Imagine

"Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen." (Eph. 3:20-21)

He is able to do more than we dare to ask, think or imagine. That's an interesting thought. because, as a follower of Christ, I believe God can do anything He chooses to do. In other words, He is limitless in knowledge, power, ability, wisdom, love, holiness. He is better than good- He is perfect.

Yet my thoughts about God aren't quite high enough. He is able to do exceedingly above all that we ask or think. Incredible. He is more perfect than my idea of perfection. He is more powerful than my thoughts about what all-powerful means. He is more loving than my thoughts about perfect love may be.

He is able to go above it all. In this exhortation to the church in Ephesus, Paul challenges our thinking about God:
  1. God's work in the church is ultimately for His glory.
  2. His power at work in you is to bring glory to Himself.
  3. He is able to do above what you ask or think.
So why not go to Him with lofty prayers for the church? Why place limits on what He can do? Approach His throne today and ask Him to do the very best- because your idea of "best" isn't "best" enough. Then sit back and watch His best radiate in your life and in your church- all for His glory.
