Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)
Whenever I am up against a problem, I think about this verse. In my humanness I want God to use his power to do more than I can ask or imagine. That’s the part we focus on, right?
But, didn’t he already do that?
Who would have ever thought that someone, someone I never met or knew, would give up unimaginable beauty to walk hot, dusty roads? Who would have thought of leaving the comfort of home where everyone around adored you to live in a place where jealousy and pride abound? Who would have thought that a creator/artist would limit himself so he could lift up other people? Who would have thought that there was a love so deep, so profoundly unthinkable, that he would leave safety to be in harm’s way every day? Who would have thought that someone would love me so much that he would give his life for me knowing I may not choose to love him back?
God has already accomplished more than we can ask or imagine. And because he did, there is a power at work in my life and my heart…..all for his glory.
Jesus, I bow before you and praise you. And while thank you doesn’t seem like enough, I know you hear my heart. Amen
