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, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We have far greater power than we often realize. That incredible power is at work within us (Ephesians 1:18-19). This promise of power, however, is tied to two opportunities God gives us daily:
  1. Ask God to do great things based on a Spirit-charged imagination.
  2. Intentionally live to bring God glory each day.
So, let's ask, imagine, and give God glory. Let's praise him for what he is doing in our lives. Let's imagine great things he can do in us, with us, and through us, while expecting him to do far greater things than we ask or even imagine!

My Prayer...

Dear Father in Heaven, forgive me for limiting your power through my pedestrian dreams, selfish prayers, and short-sighted goals. Awaken my heart to your will and open my eyes to your plans by the power of your Holy Spirit. I ask this in Jesus' name and for your glory. Amen.
