“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…” – Ephesians 3:20
What if you lived you life each day believing that was true? Would you trust your own plans for your life or His? Would you find yourself out doing what makes you happy… or finding ways to show your gratitude for all Christ has done for you? It is sad to say that most people, although they might know these words, do not believe God has anything to offer them in their daily lives.
The truth is… He has already fulfilled this promise in Jesus’ completed work of salvation and His giving us His Spirit to guide, counsel, strengthen, and sustain in our everyday lives. We just simply take this for granted, as if it holds little value. Otherwise, His name and the desire to glorify Him would be foremost on our minds.
Think about it, He is able to do far more abundantly ‘beyond’ what you ask or think… All because He loves you! It has nothing to do with what you have done or will do; His blessings are entirely by His Grace and Love! Choose to live your life in gratitude to Our God and His Son, Jesus. You won’t be sorry… and it will change everything for the good!
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast….
To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen” (Ephesians 2:8-9, 3:21).
