Scripture: Ephesians 3: 20-21
"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,
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
I must admit that these words are a great reminder and encouragement for me. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by all that is happening around me. Being busy is good, but when that busy-ness is complicated by problems that seem insurmountable, along with all of the bad news we are receiving now on a daily basis, a person can begin to wonder if perhaps life has become too hard to bear.
Add to that a few painful losses, and, well, I think you know what I mean. We've all been there.
But this scripture passage tells us that our God is so powerful and awesome that he can do exceedingly and abundantly more than anything we ask for think. Just think of it. God is able to do much more, infinitely more, than our minds are even capable of thinking.
This being true, then maybe our troubles are not so overwhelming after all. We face them with the assurance that God will always make a way, one way or another, in this life or the next. Praise the Lord.
Prayer: 'Dear Lord, forgive us for those times when our fears are so overwhelming that we forget just how powerful and mighty you are. And you are always willing to make a way for us when all seems lost. Let us look up and see these things with our eyes of faith, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.'
