Day 2: Limitless Power

Limitless Power

"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, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." - Ephesians 3:20

In this verse from Ephesians 3:20, the Apostle Paul is sharing a powerful message about the limitless nature of God's ability and His willingness to work in our lives. The verse reminds us that God's capabilities far surpass our understanding and expectations.

It's important to note that the verse begins with the declaration "Now to him who is able..." This establishes a focus on God's sovereignty and power. It reminds us that God is not limited by human constraints or challenges. He has the authority to act in ways that exceed our understanding and to bring about outcomes that we might not have considered possible. The phrase "immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine" conveys the idea that God's blessings and interventions go beyond our wildest dreams but with this caveat that it begins within your heart and mind.

As a follower of Jesus whether you realize it or not, God's power is actively at work within us. The more we embrace this work the more we begin walk in His authority and power. Notice what Paul said, “His power”. We can’t walk this journey with God on our own power. We need the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit's role in our lives is to guide, empower, and lead us daily. It's a reminder that we are not alone in our journey of faith; God's divine strength is present to help us overcome obstacles and accomplish His purposes. Finally, the verse concludes with a call to give glory to God. The praise and honor we offer are not just in response to what He has done, but also to who He is. As we recognize God's limitless power, His grace, and His unwavering love, our hearts are drawn to worship Him.

As you reflect on Ephesians 3:20, take comfort in the fact that God is not bound by any limitations. His plans for you are greater than anything you can imagine, and the Holy Spirit’s power is available to guide and empower you. Approach life with a sense of awe and expectancy, trusting that God is working in ways that are immeasurably beyond your understanding. May your faith be strengthened as you seek to bring glory to Him in all that you do.

Prayer

"Dear Heavenly Father, We come before You with hearts full of gratitude and wonder at the truth of Ephesians 3:20. You are indeed the God who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. Your power knows no bounds, and Your love for us is limitless. Lord, we confess that at times we doubt Your ability to work in our lives. We limit Your potential based on our own understanding and circumstances. But today, we choose to place our trust in You anew. We surrender our doubts, fears, and limitations into Your capable hands. Holy Spirit, may Your power, which is at work within us through the Holy Spirit, guide our steps, strengthen our resolve, and fill us with boldness. Help us to step out in faith, knowing that You are with us every step of the way. Open our hearts and minds to the possibilities You have in store for us, possibilities that go beyond what we can envision.

As we reflect on Your greatness, may our lives be living testimonies of Your glory. May our actions, words, and attitudes bring honor to Your name. Use us, Lord, as vessels of Your grace and instruments of Your love in a world that desperately needs to know You. We thank You, Lord, for the privilege of being a part of Your eternal plan. As we journey forward, may Your presence be our constant companion, and may Your purposes be fulfilled in and through us. In the name of Jesus, who makes all things possible, we pray. Amen."

P.S. I would love for you to join us this Wednesday from 6pm-7pm for a time of prayer at CC__C. We will take time to worship + pray in groups for our own needs, our community, and our church. Childcare and dinner for kiddos will be provided!
