I was convicted through this question today. Through confirmation of my own doubts, and my feelings of helplessness- how can one person make a difference?
And then I read in Ephesians 3 today, and I heard God once again speaking directly to me, to my circumstances, to where I am.
14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine…
Beyond the scope of your mind- what you can conceive, and then beyond that too.
Let that truth sink in-it is just what I needed to hear today. God is big enough for all of our troubles, our struggles.
I am not alone. My work does not have to be done alone. If I but ask, God will teach me about love that surpasses knowledge- that fills me with the fullness of God!
When I was at BSF(Bible Study Fellowship) today, hearing the lecture, and these words reached me- I felt such a deep sense of comfort. He knows every question before I ask it, before I even know what I need to ask.
He has already answered it, He knows. I am so comforted by His Presence today. By His Promises. I want to pray these promises into my life more- claim what He has freely offered.
I pray that these words would wash over you today- His desire to give us more than we can ask or imagine- that we would have the courage to follow His call in the confidence of His Word.
