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.
I love the magnitude of this verse! Sometimes I foolishly think I have a good idea of what God can do. I know He is powerful and can do anything, but what that shapes up to in my reality is such a small slice of what He can ACTUALLY do! He can do infinitely more than what we ask for …or even imagine. What our God can do is immeasurably great!
That gives me great hope because most of the time what I need and what I desire are really more than what I can comprehend on my own. There are times when I pray for my children, for my husband, for family members or friends, and even for myself – and my prayers feel hopelessly inadequate. I can pray for the things I see and the things I feel, but I am not sure I can really know exactly what is needed to bring healing and wholeness in my life or in the lives of those I love. So in those moments I am glad that God knows and that He has the ability to answer my prayers in ways that I can’t even grasp.
Pray in confidence and in faith today for those you love…maybe for those whose circumstances seem hopeless on the outside…that the mighty power of a God who can do infinitely more than we can understand reaches in and takes over.
