Summary: the power of imagination and asking
MORE THAN YOU CAN THINK OR ASK
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us… Ephesians 3:20
Our God is able to do; there is no inability in Him. It is possible for man to think and not have the ability to do, but not God – whatever is on His mind, He’s able to do. Nothing handicaps Him.
One big problem with man is that his thoughts far exceed his request. Sometimes, lack of faith makes man to ask for less than he could. For example, you may have it in your thoughts to own an estate but in the place of prayer all you could muster faith to ask God for is a house. Our thoughts include more than we dare to ask in our prayers; our dreams exceed what we consciously desire. God answers prayer; he even answers unspoken prayers. God can act beyond our ability to ask or even imagine.
Why do you limit God in your prayers? There are people in the scriptures that dared ask God seemingly impossible things and He answered them. Can you think of one of them? Who told you that which looks like a mountain before God cannot be handled by Him? No wonder that song writer says, ‘…oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pains we bear; all because we do not carry EVERYTHING to God in prayers’.
Apostle Paul uses superlatives to drive home his point: God is able to do infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope—more than we would dare to imagine. God is far above and beyond our finite minds. God is able because of his mighty power. My prayer for you is that God will increase your faith to be able to ask God in prayers that which is on your mind. I also pray that God in His infinite mercy will answer the unspoken prayers of your heart in Jesus name.
Today, I’ll just leave you to write your own prayer points; let them be according to all that your mind can think of. In faith, present it all to God and expect the best from God. I await your testimonies.
