“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
The royal wedding. I don’t need to say anything more about this special event that the world just experienced a few weeks ago. News stories. Live coverage. Social media posts. It was one of “the” events of 2018.
I’m sure that when Meghan was growing up that she never dreamed that one day that she would be part of The Royal Family. What are the chances that this would be part of her life story? It’s something that I’m sure she never even thought about…that is until it became part of her reality on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
This whole thought process really got me to thinking about how God works in our lives. According to Ephesians 3:20-21, God has the ability to do the exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think according to His great and awesome power working in us. Wow!
So many times we limit God with our mindsets. Somehow we forget that God has the power to do more than we can even think about. That means that the greatest thing that I can think about God doing, He is able to do greater than that. His thoughts are not anything like our thoughts. That’s the God that we serve!
I choose to live my life with this beautiful truth. As I trust God with every detail of my life, I am believing God to do even greater things than I can think or imagine. I am living with no limits to how God wants to favor and bless me. For far too long, I’ve lived the opposite way. Somehow I’ve believed the lie from Satan that I’m just not good enough, but I choose to declare that it’s not about how good that I am. It’s all about me being the righteousness of God. I am a new creation in Christ so I don’t have to be good enough to experience this “even greater” lifestyle. I am His beloved daughter, so I have the rights and privileges to it.
I have no idea what this is going to look like in my life, but I do know that I am living in expectancy of all that God is going to do. I’m not holding Him back from anything. Not anymore. I make a choice everyday. I can either choose to believe His Word and promises or believe the lies from the enemy that God’s Word isn’t truth for me. I choose to believe that God has an awesome and beautiful future in front of me, and it’s going to be exceedingly abundantly greater than I can even imagine!
God, I’m ready! Ready to experience all that you long and desire for me to experience. Thank you for loving me that much. Thank you that what I thought was the worst was actually just Your way of setting me up for your exceedingly abundantly that You had in mind for me from the very beginning of time. Nothing has taken You by surprise. You’re just that awesome!
