He can do more than you can ask for

Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

How do your prayers sound? If they’re anything like the prayers of the average person, they’re pretty mundane and lacking any real power. Why is that? Could it be that many followers of Christ simply don’t believe that the Father is capable of answering big, bold prayers?

But He is. He’s got everything at His disposal. He lacks nothing. He’s able to do abundantly more than we can ever ask for or even think to ask for. There’s nothing He can’t do, and He works according to the power at work within  those of who who are His.

This isn’t some “name it and claim it” bit. Every material possession you’ve ever wanted isn’t promised to you if you would just ask for it. But the real deal is that anything you need in order to accomplish the will of God is available to you. Anything you can think to ask for and much, much more. Approach the Father as though He actually has the goods and the intention to give them. He does and He does.
