Ephesians 3:20 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.
God’s power is working within us. Whether we are aware of it, it is there. And because people tend to think and ask to the level that they are exposed to, there are perhaps a myriad of other things that they may not be thinking about or asking for.
The apostle Paul, in his letter to the church body at Ephesus, understood the limitations of his own thinking. This theologically-rich letter encapsulates the meeting point of his training as a teacher of the law and His encounter with Christ. His concisely written prayer in the prior verses shows us just how much he longs for Christians to know the love of Christ.
Yet, even with everything that Paul experienced (God’s grace, power, abundance, etc.), he acknowledged that he was only scratching the surface, and that God could definitely exceed that expectation in bringing people to a greater knowledge of His love.
If there is an axiom that we can put to this, it would be, “Whatever you think God can do, don’t let that limit Him from exceeding your expectation”.
We have dreams, petitions of sorts, the sick and unwell among us. Some of us are looking for a business breakthrough, a relationship boost, a healing miracle, and the list goes on. Let’s never forget that He can do more than what you are asking for.
