WITHOUT LIMITS ~ {Good Things Thursday}

There is No Limit to What God Will Do For His Children When We Ask in His Name

I love reading the prayer of the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 3:14-21.   In this prayer Paul made three requests for his friends in Ephesus:
First, in verse 16, that they would "be strengthened with might by His Spirit"

Secondly, he asked in verse 18 that they "may be able to comprehend...the love of Christ"

And then in verse 19 Paul asks, that they "might be filled with all the fullness of God"

And, just in case we might think that this is too much to ask, Paul reminds us that these requests are made to the One who is more than able to answer them. 

"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 3:20


Paul's Knowledge of God is Revealed in the Way He Prayed

Paul knew that God is able to answer our prayers because He is the
Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent GOD.
Paul knew that God's blessings are always abundant,
exceeding our expectations beyond all
that we've read, seen, heard or imagined. 

Paul knew that God is aware of our needs before
we put thought into them and even 
if we forget to ask, He will do it
if it is according to His will. 

Paul knew that there is no limit to the power of God
at work in us to change our lives.

Finally, Paul reminds us in verse 21 that all these abundant and limitless blessings are not intended for our own glory but for the eternal glory of God in and through the local, visible church that has been purchased with the blood of Christ Jesus.  Amen! 

My prayer for you is that God will bless your day exceeding abundantly!                                             ~Pamelyn
