"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 NIV
This looks like a fun family activity. We love water sports but usually do them with friends who have boats and waterfront property. Last summer we didn't do much on the water, but this summer is in the planning stages!
First things first. We need to have sunny days and warm weather. Snow is in the forecast again, but I am not believing it. This is the month of April. We have rain, not snow. This is the way things work. Put away the winter clothes, sweaters, hats, scarves and gloves.
Only God can cheer me up about the weather! When I think of Him, I know this is temporary. He holds all creation in His hands. Eternity will be filled with sunny days, and warm temperatures.
My son Rudy is in Miami, Florida this week enjoying 85 degree days. Our weather is not world wide, and sometimes I forget this. Our problems aren't as deep as they may seem to us. God is able.
"Now to him who is able"is a snippet of our verse that I am tickled with today. It says a lot right here. It means He is, and He will, and He has. The "He has" is part of history. The "He is" is from the Word of God. The "He will" is part of prayer. I know he will answer me, because he always has.
These sayings are intertwined just as our bodies are connected to our spirit, and souls. How do I know He will? I have a history with God. He is faithful. He is, because I know the Word of God says so and I see His hand in all things around me. This builds my faith for the coming answers because the He will comes from He has, and He is. Does this make sense to you?
I hope so, because I am being blessed. If you can't join in I've lost something. I hope you got the message that God can do a lot of things. What an understatement! Immeasurably more, goes farther than a lot. He is beyond our wildest imaginations. Better than our best dreams will allow. When you are reaching higher than before, keep going and you still won't reach beyond His best for you. Let that sink in.
