“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us....”
Ephesians 3:20 NKJV
Regarding today’s Scripture I would like to ask you a question. Have you ever had a REALLY BIG IDEA? A thought, of something you’d like to do and your initial thought is, that’s not possible? No way, not going to happen?
Listen there will be times when God will drop a REALLY BIG IDEA in you. Something way beyond what you could possibly accomplish. I mean it staggers you at first!
The Bible is filled with people who did great things for God, directed by Him, but lacked what was necessary in the beginning to fulfill the mission.
We’ve held back on doing things because we haven’t gotten a hold of what God has said and promised.
God said He “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think...”
Notice the responsibility for “doing” is based entirely on His ability.
And all of this is “according to the power that works in us....”. That word power in the Greek is dunamis and is also translated force, miraculous power, ability, might and strength.
I like how the Message Bible puts it:
“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.”
Ephesians 3:20 MSG
So the next time God drops that REALLY BIG IDEA in you, embrace it. Let Him know you are ready for the mission and He will empower you and provide all the resources you need.
