Beyond your wildest dreams

Eph 3 20 350x350 Beyond your wildest dreams

Do yourself a favour and read that again.

The Amplified version says it this way:

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the (action of His) power that is at work within us, is able to (carry out His purpose and) do superabundantly, far over and above all that we (dare) ask or think (infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams)

Let that really sink in a moment

The power of God Himself is at work in you. The power that created the Universes. The power that causes the sun to shine and sustain life. The power that thought of all the millions of processes that keep you not only alive, but flourishing on the Earth. The power that formed your individual body, with its astounding intricacies. THAT POWER is at work in YOUR life today!

As a consequence of THAT power being at work in you. It is God’s power is at work in you. Not your own limited power and, as a consequence of that…

 He is able… He can do what He’s planned for you. You don’t have to do it alone. You don’t have to try and do things that you don’t know how to do. The Holy Spirit is a Genius. He knows how to look after a new born baby. He knows how to fix your car. He knows how to run a business. He understands teenagers. He knows who you’re to marry how to keep a marriage strong.

…to carry out His purposes. His amazing plan for you! The place you’re to live. The people He’s created to be your friends. The job He’s made for you to contribute to. The timings of your life – what you’re to do where and when.

and do superabundantly, far over and above. Create a FAR better outcome than we could ever have hoped for. Impacting more lives. Experiencing more joy. Seeing more miracles. spending every moment of the day with Him.

all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams. The dreams you have are so big to you, but God promises that He can do so much more than you can ever imagine. Not only that, but He does it in ways different to the ways you imagine. Like when you thought you HAD to have that job in order to succeed or you HAD to get that house you bid on or you HAD to be married by a certain age. God doesn’t do things in our way or in our timing. He has a MUCH better plan for us!

 

So, as we trust Him, He unfolds it for us day by day.

He delights in showing us how He’s allowing our character to be developed (would you give your car keys to a 5 year old and let them drive?). It puts a smile on His face when we discover a new facet of His nature – like when He paints an exquisite sunset to cheer us up on a bad day or when He sends someone to bless us with a home cooked meal or when He protects us from dangers we cannot even see.

Imagine getting to the state of mind where ALL you want is what God wants. All you want to happen every day is what God has planned to happen, so that you know that the events that are taking place in front of you right this minute, are exactly as God planned them to be. And you’re so grateful that He’s in control.

The Truth is that that’s exactly where you are right now. Do you choose to look at it that way? Will you choose to dream big with God and know that He will bring you outcomes that are even bigger than what you dream – when you surrender to Him and let Him be almighty God?

What an awesome way to live! Thank You LORD
