Does God still perform miracles today? Can God really do more than you can ask or think? You might be a bit skeptical if I told you I know someone who was raised from the dead, or I hear of someone who was able to walk on water? You may say that that’s not possible.
Our modern culture is somewhat obsessed with superheroes. We flock to the theatres when we know a new Avengers movie is coming out. We sit and watch CGI generated people do miraculous things. But is it possible that we have forgotten that we serve a superhero?
In the Old Testament, we read wonderful accounts of how God parted the Red Sea, made barren women fertile and even rained food down from heaven. In the New Testament, we see Jesus, raise people from the dead, heal the sick and give sight to the blind. So why is it so difficult for us to believe that the God we serve, has the same power now as he did in Bible times?
Our devotional text for today states:
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,”Ephesians 2:20
More than you can ask or think
God is able to do much more than we can ask or think. Let’s think about that a moment. Think about the most unlikely thing; something that may never happen in your life. Is it to become super-wealthy? Or maybe to become a bestselling author? Or maybe you want God to literally move a mountain. Whatever it is, nothing is impossible for God! Whatever you are thinking or asking God to do right now, he can do that and MUCH MORE than you can even conceive.
This is a promise that God can do more than you can even imagine. In 2 Peter 1:4 the Bible declares:
“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises….“
Do you believe that God keeps his promises? I do! He has a great plan for every one of our lives. No matter the situation you find yourself in right now, God is powerful enough not only to leap you out of it but also to give you a more abundant life.
Prayer for Today:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for your promise of abundance. I know that you all things are possible through you. Give me the faith to trust in your mighty power. Help me to hold onto your promises even during tough times.
