”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 (KJV)
One of the challenges of man is the inability to believe God. Many times, believers seem to judge God by what they can do and not what He can do. Stop and think about it: “God is not man”. He is not in the category of any man. There is no one, no matter how rich, influential, intelligent or highly placed, that can come close to God. Stop judging God by your senses. In actual fact, God has not called you to understand Him or His word, but to believe Him.
In our scripture today, the Apostle Paul brings the dimension of God’s ability to the table. He said God is able to do not just more, but “exceeding, abundantly, above” think about those adjectives for a moment. What can you think of in your wildest imagination? What can you dare to ask God for? Na matter how wild your imagination can run, guess what? God can do much more. That is the God you serve. Do you realise that the power that brought Jesus back to life, not for one day, or one year or one decade or even one century, but brought Him back alive to live forever, is the same power at work in you? Do you realise that? It actually costs God nothing to exceed your expectation, only if you believe. I challenge you today to take the limit off God. See God as who He is. Put Him in a class of Him own. Don’t judge Him by what someone can do. Realise that He is God and whatever He has said, your part is simply to believe it and see it come to pass. He does not need your help, He only needs your faith. Dare to believe Him today and see what you imagined impossible come to pass in your life. Welcome to your season of celebration.
