Devotional: Beyond What We Could Ever Imagine
Christian Devotion on God doing superabundantly more than we dream of
Now to Him who is able to
[carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest
prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and
in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen. - Ephesians 3:20-21 (AMP)
It is God who carries out
His purpose, doing so much more in and through us than we could possibly imagine, accomplishing way beyond what we
think or even dare ask of Him, infinitely beyond our greatest prayer, or what we've ever hoped for or dreamed
could be possible.
So often, our prayers seem
so small and 'limited' in comparison to what God can do and wants to do. And what God wants to accomplish in and
through us, is made possible by His power that is at work in us. He empowers us through the indwelling Holy Spirit;
therefore, we are well able because He is well able. We can carry out His purpose for our lives because of the
empowerment of the Holy Spirit. It is He who works through us, bringing about the desired outcome and causing us
to be successful in it—and as a result, it is He who is glorified!
When God first told me to
build a website, a place to share my poetry and the gospel of Christ with others, my vision for it back then was
somewhat 'limited'. Years later, I discovered that God's vision for the website was so much more than mine, and that
Heavens Inspirations was, in fact, my 'ministry'. I never envisioned that it would become my ministry when I first
began. God brought the increase and has grown it in more ways than I could ever dream of. It has expanded, from when
I first started out, to include so much more than what I ever thought it would. I was reminded of this while meditating
on this scripture.
When we are faithful with what
God has given us and commit it into His hands, He can use us in ways we could never imagine, doing so much more
through us than what we would even think of asking, and He is well able to continually do even more—superabundantly!
I like the way The Passion
translation puts this passage: Never doubt God's mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve
infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He
will outdo them all, for His miraculous power constantly energizes you.
