He Is Able
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
In his sermon last Sunday Larry Dove ended by reminding us that "God is able." He did a classic call and response session with us, making us say it: "God is able!" That's because, in the feeding of the 5,000 which we've been looking at all week, when everything is said and done, God is the one who performs the miracle.
Sometimes we need to be reminded of the simple truth that "God is able." Too many times we live in our heads, thinking and rethinking about what we believe and forgetting the very basic stuff of following Jesus, like God being able to do what needs to be done in our lives and in our world.
Today's passage is the ending of Paul's prayer for his friends in the town of Ephesus. He closes his prayer reminding them that "God is able" - to do way more than whatever we need.
Spend some time today thanking God, praising God, and seeking God - because "God is able."
