Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, Ephesians 3:20 AMP
Just about everyone at one time or another needed to ask someone else for a favor. That request is or should be guided by the ability of the person to provide. If you needed help with a project to provide food for hungry people, almost everyone can respond because their response is based on their ability; some might be able to provide five dollars worth of help, others five thousand dollars worth of help and a host of others who would fall in between. Their ability to provide is based on their provision.
Now, at times, when we look to God we see Him as a God who is limited in His ability to provide. You might wonder why would I make such a statement but our words and our actions betray us. Well, how many times have you or someone you know have a headache and the first action is to reach for pain medication. Don’t get me wrong, pain medication is necessary for people in constant pain. We say, “He is a healer;” but we don’t want to bother Him with a simple, little headache when we have pain medication in the house.
The Apostle Paul says He can do superabundantly; the dictionary defines superabundant as very plentiful; more than enough. Does that sound like our God? Yes, He is the God of more than enough. He is able to surpass anything than we can imagine. In Daniel chapter three, three young men found themselves sentenced to death by a blazing furnace because they refused to worship an idol. When the sentence was pronounced, they didn’t lose heart, instead they told the king, “If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to rescue us from the furnace of blazing fire, and He will rescue us from your hand, O king.” Verse 17. In other words, they told the king that their God had more than enough power to override their death sentence.
There are so many people, who like the king, want to pass sentence over your life. What do you do? Don’t surrender to their vision of who your God is, instead, do like those young men and stand firm in the ability of God to do the superabundant in your life. Those young men were not disappointed because, God didn’t remove them from the furnace but stepped in the furnace with them and changed the character of the fire for them. People of faith, God will do the same in our lives, He is the Self-Sufficient God.
Thought for Today: Friend, God will override the enemy’s plans for you.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
