“Now to Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”
Have you ever contemplated the magnitude of that promise? If it only said, “Him that is able to do all we ASK,” it would be amazing.
But it says He is able to do all we ask or THINK! God can accomplish anything I can think up or ask.
Yet, it doesn’t stop there. Think what a great promise it would be if it said, “He is able to do ABOVE all we ask or think.” God can do things that are beyond my imagination or expectation.
And that still isn’t the limit: “He is able to do ABUNDANTLY above all we ask or think.” Not only can God exceed the limits of my mind, He goes way beyond.
What a great promise that would be. And it still doesn’t express the full capability of our Heavenly Father. There’s still one more adjective to add: “He is able to do EXCEEDING abundantly above all that we ask or think!”
God is not restricted to answering our requests. But, apart from His own will, there is nothing that restricts Him from fulfilling them.
Do you grasp the full capability of the power of our God? Exceeding. Abundantly. Above. All. Ask. Think.
I might think “What a BIG promise!” I should think, “What a BIG God!”
