Ephesians 3:20 NLT - "Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think."
This is one of those "famous verses" we Christians love to come to and just dream and imagine all that could happen if we could see this fulfilled in our lives! But what is perhaps so sad is that many believers feel this verse is "beyond their faith" and don't even approach God with a request that would need such a grand reply! We simply ask God to "get us through another day", to "meet our needs for a good job," or "heal my sick aunt," or "help me to live for You today." Now, there's nothing wrong with praying for the day-to-day needs we all have. And we should anticipate that our loving God will meet those daily needs. BUT, have we really ever sought to ask for "great and mighty things" (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV) from a God who is rich with eternal resources and able to do exactly what this verse says?! One of the great missionary statesmen from the past was noted for saying, "Attempt great things for God; expect great things from God." Right now, as I write this, I know of many who are claiming lives for Christ. They are asking God for the souls of men and women who are lost and need to know there is a Redeemer waiting to be their Savior. What about you? Do you have a God who can do what this verse promises? "Sure," you say, but then I might ask, "Are you willing to ask God to lay on your heart a large request, even a huge request, that would honor such a generous God?" What God would love to do is to show you His infinite power to do impossible things to bring Him glory, a glory He is willing to allow you to behold! What will you ask of God?
