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
How good is your imagination? No matter how big it is, no matter how inventive our thoughts or how many incredible things we can come up with — what God can do, what He actually can do is greater.
God’s power is so limitless, it is beyond what we can imagine even in our wildest dreams. We cannot begin to comprehend what it means to bring something into existence simply by thinking about it. (We cannot even comprehend what it means to be able to think of something that doesn’t exist.) Describing God’s power, what He is able to do, takes words like infinite, immeasurable, unending. These are all terms that stretch our own thinking past what we are capable of understanding. God’s power is absolute.
Guess what? That power is at work inside us. Can you imagine? Well, no we can’t! We have within us power that cannot be limited or used up. God can do anything we can think of, or ask of Him. Our prayers and requests are being heard by the one who has created all things, our lives are being changed by the one who takes nothing and turns it into a universe. He guides us, changes us, and answers our prayers. And all those things are done in a way that is more than we can even imagine!
