Immeasureably More!

by Belinda Kersey 1/8/12
God’s Word
Ephesians 3:20
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… (NIV)

Ephesians 3:20 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. (The Message)

The Song
God is Able by Hillsong

My Thoughts
  Today was a typical Sunday at church.  You know the routine-sing some songs, say a prayer, listen to the sermon, put your check in the offering.  But today, in the midst of the weekly ritual, God’s presence was felt through a song I’d not heard before.  Almost as soon as the song was begun, a holy reverence enveloped the congregation.  

I know one family in the congregation had just lost a beloved grandmother, mother and wife, others are struggling with cancer, some have major decisions to make but this song spoke peace to all those situations.  “God is able He will never fail He is Almighty God greater than all we seek greater than all we ask”.
Yes, my friend, God manifested himself through these powerful words and spoke “peace, be still” to each of our souls.  He reminded us He was “lifted up (and ) He defeated the grave.  (He was) raised to life (and He’s) our God (and He) is able.”
There was no doubt in the minds of those who were open to His presence that “God is with us God is on our side. He will make a way far above all we know, far above all we hope.  You can be certain of this truth, dear one, because “He has done great things”!
I am so thankful for the times God’s presence takes us by surprise.  I know he understands why those who have attended thousands of Sunday services sometimes become guilty of going on “auto-pilot” during church.  I am also thankful He knows how to break in to our routine and shake us out of our slumber.
He wants us to never forget “In His Name we overcome for the Lord our God is able”.  What is He able to do?  He is able to step into your world and your situation and do IMMEASUREABLY MORE than you could even think about asking him to do!  I don’t know about you but I have had some wild dreams and can imagine a few huge requests.  However,  my imagination and dreams are mere specks compared to what God can grant or fulfill!  Remember, He imagined this amazing world into existence.  He let out a breath and Adam lived.
Yes, today I am thankful he entered our souls and confirmed that “God is with us, He will go before us,  He will never leave us.  God is for us,  He has open arms,  He will never fail us for the Lord our God is able”!
Your Response
Voice your needs to your Heavenly Father and thank Him for doing FAR more than you can ever imagine.
