My Favorite Bible Verse

I don’t know if you’re supposed to have a favorite verse from the Bible. So, maybe I would be better to call this my “life verse.” Either way it is found in Ephesians Chapter 3, verse 20.

In the New King James Version it reads like this – “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. . .”

 

First, the “to Him” refers to glory given to God (v. 21). That is always to be first. If you are a Christian, everything you say, everything you do is to bring glory to Him. Pretty awesome responsibility huh? Or, you could look at it as an awesome privilege.

 

The next part says He is able to do exceedingly – meaning way past, abundantly – way more, above – way beyond, ALL that we can ask or think. Too often our prayers are so small in light of what God can do. What would it be like if we were to really push the envelope when it comes to what we ask of God? We must keep in mind it must be in His will, but so often what we receive is limited because what we ask for is small.

 

Lastly, look at the closing words, “. . . according to the power that works in us.” How amazing! The Creator God of the universe chooses to work through us.

What an awesome God! I’d like to hear what your favorite (life verse) is. Have a blessed day!
