“Now unto Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us!” Ephesians 3:20
According to the Word of God, the only limitations of God’s supply, lie with us! This is really GOOD NEWS! Because if we are the one limiting God in our lives, then we are the ones who can take the limits off! The question is, how do we do that? The answer lies in the scripture above.
Activate the Power that Works in us, because it is according to that power working in us that enables God to exceed our requests and out expectations!
First, we need to come to God. The above scripture says, “Now unto Him…” In His presence is where the scriptures are understood. In His presence there is revelation, insight and
understanding. Jesus sat with His disciples after He rose from the dead and opened their
understanding to the scriptures. (Luke 24:45) We need to lay aside preconceived notions and opinions and come ready to receive His instruction. He is an excellent Teacher!
Second, we need to ask of Him with the expectation that He will exceed our requests. Many approach God wondering IF He will answer, but when we come to Him with confidence in His love for us, we can be assured that He loves to exceed our requests.
Third, we need to renew our mind with the Word of God and break the cycles of defeated thinking, wrong believing, and wrong talking! Think the way the scripture instructs us to think! Believe what the scripture tells us about God and about us! Speak the words of the scripture and keep speaking the Word until we experience the desired result.
This is the power that God placed in us to work in us. God has done His part. Our part is to allow His power to work in us and give it full reign so He can exceed our wildest imaginations!
