He is Able

Who is able, are you? Perhaps you can do many things for which you have been enabled. Perhaps others can do more. But only God can do “immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine”  (Ephesians 3:20). Only He is able. This verse is part of Paul’s prayer to the Ephesians:
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus through out all generations, forever and ever! Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21).

“One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all (Ephesians 4:6).  I am talking about the One and only who makes ALL things work together for good for those who love Him and have been called according to His purpose as Romans 8:28 tells us. Yes, He alone is infinite, and He alone is infinitely or immeasurably at work within His people. Look at the stars, can you count them? There are more than we count or ever will be able. More than we can imagine. He is at work within us, giving us His power through His Holy Spirit. “Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!” (2Corinthians 9:15). I am talking about Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit.

Do not doubt it as you ask for it as James 1:5-8 tells us: “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do”  (James 1:5-8).  He is able and will give us more than we could ask or think to ask. Prayer is our most powerful tool. God knows what we need, but He wants us to get that it is beyond us and in His power to give.

The verse above this “wonderfilled” benediction is Paul’s admonition that God will give us power through His Spirit in our inner being as we grasp how wide, high, long and deep is His love and be filled to the fullness of God. That’s where our faith needs to take us- His power through faith. So today, when you are struggling with seemingly impossible problems, know that nothing is impossible for God for He is immeasurably able. May this immeasurably powerful gift be at work throughout His church, believers, forever and ever, Amen!
