Last night I was asked to share a favorite promise that God gives in Scripture. I never actually got to share it (guess I took too long to figure out which one to share:) but it’s been on my heart ever since, so here are my thoughts.
Ephesians 3.20 is a verse that my best friend and I used to share with each other in high school. If one of us was going through something that we just couldn’t see a good end-result to, we would usually pray together and share encouraging words from God on the matter. Ephesians 3.20 was our favorite and seemed to fit most circumstances. Even now, about 1,000 miles away, we still remind each other of it at times.
"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…"
You’ll notice that this is not a complete sentence, however, this sentence fragment, in and of itself, states something very powerful. It’s not necessarily stated as a promise, which is probably why I hesitated to share it last night, but it’s serves as a promise of these three things to me…
1. He is able
2. He is able to do way more than I can ask or think
3. There’s a power at work within me
This morning as I was driving to work, I enjoyed my time, immersed in the presence of Jesus. I had an older song on ("All things are Possible") and its connection to the verse on my heart caused supernatural faith to be built. I found myself forcing my eyes to stay open, becuase all I wanted to do was close my eyes to worship…it was a powerful time. That song was followed by "Power of Your Love" and once I pulled up to work I had a hard time shutting it off. "God, we’re gonna have a great day together," I said, and then finally got out of the car.
God is able to do way more than I can even fathom…sure is good to know. 🙂
