So…. I received our son’s very first school report and might I say? I am a vEry proud mommy!! Funny enough, there are some things that I do not agree with concerning what he can and can not do, but that’s for the parent teacher evening. Haha! Anyhoo…
Before you read any further, I want you to go and get your Bible or whatever you use to read God’s word. I didn’t post all the scriptures here, because I want you to look it up for yourself and make notes or highlight whatever makes sense to you. 🙂
God has laid this scripture Eph. 3:20-21 heavily on my heart and it is such a POWERFUL scripture. According to my Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible these 2 scriptures contain a PROMISE AND A PROPHECY! How cool is that?
Let’s take a look at how the Aplified Bible writes this scripture. (I like the Amplified, because it gives the description of certain words within context of how it was originally written.)
20. Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—-
21. To Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).
WOW! How powerful is that!? Read it again….
Did you see the promise and the prophesy?
I sure didn’t when I first read it, but when I was notified of it this scripture took on a whole NEW meaning!!
Fasten your seatbelt!
You see, it says that God is ABLE to do ANYTHING that we could dare ask OR think of. Now, that does not mean you may ask to become the richest or the latest in celebrity news, but we are allowed to ask for our hearts desires that will bring glory to God and His Kingdom forever.
So here it is:
Promise: v20. God is able to do superabundantly above the greatest abundance we may ask or even think, according to the power that works within us. According to 2 Peter 1:4 God has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises so that through them we can escape the moral decay that is in this world.
Remember Jer. 29:11?? No?? Read it quickly and see how great it connects with this scripture!
V21. The church will keep going throughout generations forever bringing Glory to Him FOREVER!
So what is my point exactly?
1. God is able to do ANYTHING! He can change your circumstances in the blink of an eye. That thorn in your side, that thing that becomes your last thought before you close your eyes to sleep, that person speaking wrong of you, that temptation that is making you walk bent over from the burden of it on your shoulders…. God can change it! And He can change it NOW, if only you’ll believe and LET HIM change it!
Do you believe? Do you believe every single, Holy Spirit inspired Word of God in the Bible? And DO YOU BELIEVE GOD? You know, I see so many people who say they believe that God can change their situations, but they don’t want to ALLOW God to change it. They feel like it’s a burden to Him. “Why should I bother Him with my debt on top of all the other things He needs to sort out?” Allot of people ask that or similar questions and I have an answer for you:
BECAUSE HE WANTS TO!!
Why would you want to help your son/daughter get out of debt or any other difficult situation? Because you LOVE them…. You WANT to help your son/daughter because you just want the BEST for them. They deserve the best, because they are yours!!
Well…. That’s exactly how God feels about it… His willingness to help us in our times of need is directly connected with His LOVE for us! There are NO limitations!! There’s that scripture again: Jer. 29:11
I know I only want the BEST for our son. I always say, if our son needs something whether financially, spiritually or physically I will go to my utmost to give him whatever he needs!!! NO LIMITS! Why? Because I LOVE Him, I ONLY want the best for him.
Do you understand HOW MUCH God loves you? Do you realize HOW MUCH He is willing to do for you? JUST because He loves you.
2. We need to start not only believing IN God, but literally BELIEVING God!!
Are you ready for your life and circumstances to change and start coming in line with God’s plan for your life?
Pray with me:
Lord, thank You for Your love. Thank You, that You love me so much that You are willing to do over and above anything I could dare ask or even dream of. Lord, I want to ask Your forgiveness for trying to carry my own burdens instead of giving them over to You and trusting You with them. Here are all my cares and circumstances, take it off my hands and set me free of all worry and heavyness. I believe You are able to turn things around for good, because you love me. In Jesus name.
I believe that this word has been a blessing tou you. Send it on and bless someone else with it too.
Have a wonderful week.
