Immeasurable Abundance

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.” [Ephesians 3:20 NKJV]

Exceedingly abundantly. If you read my blog post the other  week about adverbs, you might think this is a bit of overkill in descriptiveness. However, when it comes to God, I don’t think you can use too many words. In fact, I don’t think there are enough words in all the languages of the earth to fully describe Him.

So, when Paul writes exceedingly abundantly here, it is only because there are not enough words to describe in measurement how much our Heavenly Father can accomplish for us. He says it goes even beyond our imagination.

We have the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. The same power that parted the sea, that held the sun still in the sky, that healed the sick, and that raised the dead.

So, when we pray, we can keep this in mind and step out in boldness, making requests that go beyond our reasoning of what might be acceptable to Him. You just never know what might happen! 🙂
