“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, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
Have you ever looked at your life and said, “I’m tired!” You are busy going here and there, doing this and that, working day in and out! A hamster on the wheel effect!!! You wonder, “Should life be this hard!” Well the answer to that my friend is “No!” Life should not be that hard and God did not design it that way.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth. He created the Garden of Eden, which had everything in it for man and animal to survive. Scripture says, “God placed man in the garden to work it and take care of it (Genesis 2:15 NIV); therefore man did not labor the garden from a non-existent state.
Plants, trees, vegetables, fruits, water, shelter was already there. All man had to do was enjoy the surroundings and continue nurturing what God cultivated.
What made me think about life and the rat-race our world deems is normal was the daily scripture. Today’s verse says that God can give immeasurably more than what we can think or ask. But to me, the kicker is the second part, which declares it’s according to His power that works within us. We have to live our life including God in the picture for the unimaginable to happen! When we give Him control, He knows how to make our rough places smooth and our crooked paths straight (Isaiah 42:16 NIV & Isaiah 45:2 KJV).
“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:16 NIV
“I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:” Isaiah 45:2 KJV
So, if we live and work with God, skies the limit!
God’s Power puts us at the right place at the right time!
God’s Power has us accomplishing more in less time!
God’s Power preserves energy not depletes it!
God’s Power gives us uncommon favor!
God’s Power increases spiritual growth and decreases mediocre thinking!
So, if life has you tired, do what Jesus says and take His yoke because it is easy and His burden is light (Matthew 11: 28-30 NIV).
Cast your cares upon God for He will sustain you (Psalm 55:22 NIV).
And, know that with God in the driver seat, He is able to do immeasurably more than you can imagine or ask!
Be Blessed in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen ~
