He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly beyond what you can imagine
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,
According to his power that is at work within us,
To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
Throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
The other day a friend and I were talking and sharing prayer requests. At one point in the conversation my friend said, “I don’t even know what to tell you as far as how to pray for this situation. I just know it needs prayer.” I love my friend, and the fact that we can be vulnerable with each other. I think of all the times I have whispered in prayer, “Lord, I don’t know how to pray about this. I can’t imagine how this can turn out for good, but you can. I just ask you to step in and glorify yourself through this.” So many times when I have prayed a prayer like that God has surprised me with the miraculous. He loves to do beyond what we can even imagine. That is the message the apostle Paul was writing to the church in Ephesus while he was sitting in a jail cell. His message was, Don’t give up. God is able to do beyond what you can ask or imagine! What a glorious reason to praise Him!
As our thirty days of praise comes to a close, may I encourage you? Don’t quit! God is able to do beyond what you can ask or imagine! The more you praise Him the more He will unleash His power in your life and in your situation.
Memorize Ephesians 3:20-21 and then begin to use it in your praise time. Think through different areas of your life and specifically praise God that He is able to do beyond what you can imagine in that area. For example, you might pray, “Lord, I praise you that you are able to do exceedingly abundantly, beyond what I can ask or imagine in my marriage.” Or, you might pray, “Lord, I praise you that you can do beyond what I can ask or imagine in my child’s life.” Think through the following areas and praise God specifically that He is able to do abundantly more than all you can ask or imagine in;
- Your marriage
- Your children’s lives
- Your career
- Your health
- Your finances
- Your neighborhood
- Your community
- Your city
- Your State
- Your world
As you move throughout your day any time a worry enters your mind immediately begin to praise God that He is able to do beyond what you can imagine!
