I was just a a young youth pastor in Aurora, CO, and I was sitting in my office reading the book of Ephesians. When I read the third chapter, the 20th verse seemed to jump off the page. It was such a God moment and little did I know that verse would become my “life verse” and a promise from God’s word that has propelled me through the thick and thin on my life’s journey.
It simply says, “Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly (abundantly, immeasurably more) than I could ever ask (think, dream, plan or even imagine), according to the power that is at work in you.”
That is a powerful verse. It gives me the confidence that when we are connected to the power (Christ in us), through us God wants to do lots of amazing things. He wants to do more than we can ask, think, dream, plan or even imagine. More than the biggest, wildest or scariest things I could ever believe him to do through me.
Not only does God give us the promise, but he gives us the key to the promise. That is simply to let Him to work in us. Then, He can work through us to accomplish those big, scary and wild things for Him.
What are the wildest, scariest and biggest thing(s) you could even imagine God doing through you? Let’s dream big dreams for God. Let’s accomplish great things for God. Let’s climb many mountains with God. For with God we can do anything — So let’s dream (Eph. 3:20)!
