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. (Ephesians 3:20)
This is one of my all-time favorite verses in Scripture, because it reminds me how God works in ways above and beyond what my human mind can comprehend. Anything we could think up, dream up, or make up in our heads; He can surpass with His goodness and His grace. Isn’t that amazing?
Take a minute to think about everything God has done in your life. Think about all that He has given you and how He has blessed you. Think about the second chances, third chances, and fourth chances He has granted you because of His mercy and love. If we are being honest, we don’t deserve to be treated that way or given that much grace. This makes His grace far more meaningful.
I pray you will never forget how good your Heavenly Father is to you. Even when you can’t understand why He does certain things, He is still good. Even when you don’t know why He chooses to work on a time frame that doesn’t match yours, He is still faithful. He is always working to give you immeasurably more than you could ask or imagine.
As you remember this truth, my challenge is: Take some time to make a list of how God has been good to you. Write down some of the things He has blessed you with – your health, your relationships, your resources, your ability to see, hear, and taste. Include anything you can think of on that list. Then, spend some time in prayer, thanking God for these things, and acknowledging His grace and goodness.
