“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think …” [Eph 3:20 NKJV]
“Wow!” Read that again. God is “able.” Double “Wow!”
He is able “to do exceedingly abundantly above all.” Glory!
He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all “that we ask or think.” Are you rejoicing yet?
I have read that verse probably hundreds of times and still it floods my soul with such amazement. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly (immeasurably more, infinitely more) than what I might ask, or even think about or imagine. There are times when I don’t ask God for something because I think it might be too much to ask. Yet this verse tells me that there is never too much to approach God with as long as we stay within His stated will in His Word.
I guess that raises the question, are we asking enough from our Father God who tells His children to come to Him and present their requests? Are we asking for healing from the one whose “stripes we are healed?” Are we asking for provision enough for our daily needs? Are we asking for spiritual growth from the One who promised to send the Comforter to lead us and guide us into all truth? Have we perhaps decided that God is “not able” even though His Word says otherwise?
As I read this verse again this morning, I’ve decided to get bolder in my prayers and requests to Him. I want to see all that God can do in His amazing glory and power. I want to see Him work in me, through me, for me, with me. I want to see miracles that give evidence of our testimony to the world that in any and every situation our “God is able … exceedingly, abundantly, immeasurably, infinitely able.” Amen & Amen!
