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, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Today’s passage talks about the One who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. God is able- He is our “can do” God. What an incredible assurance we have in stepping into prayers and petitions knowing He can do even more than what we expect and hope for!
The proof of this power is already at work within us- the fact that we’ve been saved and redeemed by Jesus’ blood, our sins have been washed away, and that the Holy Spirit lives in us!
“To him who is able…to him be the glory” – to be the church, the Body of Christ, is to glorify Him through and in Christ Jesus, and it is to be perpetuated forever more.
“Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do.” – Andrew Murray
