I think we all wish God would do more in our lives. This Scripture makes some bold promises to every child of God. Often, our focus is on what we can do. But God is focused on helping us to see what He can do in us and for us.
A few things to remember:
1) “Who is able” – God is not limited in any way. He is all powerful. Whatever He desires to do, He will do. So what limits us? Really, the truthful answer is us! Our lack of faith in Him limits us. We must feed our faith in Him.
2) “Above what we ask” – God desires to answer our prayers according to his will, and much farther beyond. But sometimes we don’t ask him for anything, or we fail to expect him to answer.
Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in California, says it this way:
When God doesn’t answer our prayers the way we think He will, it may be because He has something bigger and better and more important to do for us.
3) “Above all we think” – God can exceed our imagination and expectations. As the Bible says: “No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor even entered into the mind of man, the things that God has prepared for those who love Him.” (I Cor. 2:9)
Let’s invite God to be a part of our lives, and let Him do some great and unbelievable things!
