So much more
With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20, NIV)
In his doxology, the Apostle Paul describes God as Omnipotent. The God who, “can do much, much more than anything that we ask or think”. He is able to do all things, and able to do “super-abundantly above the greatest abundance.” This means that there is an inexhaustible fullness of grace and mercy in God, so much that not even the prayers of all the Christians in the world can ever draw dry. How wonderful to know dear friend, that the love and power of God is inexhaustible and cannot be limited by human imagination. What a great God we are privileged to serve!
God Is Able To Do “So Much More Than Whatever We Can Ask
This means that God’s ability to answer prayers has never been and is not in doubt. No amount of prayer offered to God requesting for anything can exhaust His ability to meet such needs. No wonder Jesus says, “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24, KJV). This informs me that there is “so much more” to be received from God through prayers. But do you believe in the power of prayer? Are you praying? Or are you busy performing “Christianised rituals” (so called assignment)? Dearly beloved, there is nothing bigger than the ability of our God. With God anything is possible, provided you ask. He is waiting for you to come to Him asking anything in prayer. Hear this, “O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. He will be gracious if you ask for help. He will surely respond to the sound of your cries” (Isa. 30:19, NLT). OH COME, TASTE AND SEE GOD’S ABILITY TO DO SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER ASK, as you take advantage of your church prayer meetings and always keep it a date with God.
God Is Able To Do “So Much More” Than Anything We Can Imagine
Human imagination cannot comprehend or limit the power of God. In other words, what God is able to do is unthinkable, the human mind cannot fathom.
The parable of Jesus about the prodigal son as recorded in Saint Luke’s gospel chapter fifteen (15) verses eleven (11) to thirty-two (32) could be used to best illustrate this point. After wasting his own portion of inheritance to wild and reckless living in a far country, the prodigal son was almost dying of starvation. But suddenly, he imagined becoming a servant in his Father’s house. He despised the shame and returned back home to his Father, hoping to be received as a servant in his Father’s house. Having lost
All to wild living, the prodigal son imagined that the place of a servant in his Father’s house will be okay for him but was shocked that after he applied for the position of a servant, the Father granted him “so much more” than he could ever imagined or dreamt, so much more was done to the prodigal son that even the elder brother became envious and jealous.
Friend, why waste away in wild and reckless lifestyle in this far country of sin and wickedness. It can lead to eternal starvation and death. I counsel you to turn now to the Father in repentance and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and enjoy the “so much more” blessings that the Father has for you – “That is what the scriptures meant when it says,
No eye has seen no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians. 2:9, Isa. 64:4 (NLT)
So much more than I can explain awaits you in Christ. Come to Him and you will never regret you did. Grace be with you.
