‘By His mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than We would ever dare to ask or hope.” Ephesians 3:20
In the great prayer which Paul had just written, he had apparently reached the highest expression possible of the life to which God’s mighty power could bring the believer. But Paul is not content. In this doxology he rises still higher and lifts us up to give glory to God
as “able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.” Pause for a moment to consider what ‘infinitely more’ means.
Think of the words,
“he has given us all of his rich and wonderful promises” (2 Peter 1:4).
“the incredible greatness of his power for us who believe him.“
This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead: (Ephesians 1:19-20). With these words Paul hopes to lift our hearts to believe that God is able to do
‘infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.’
The power of God that works in us is nothing less than the exceeding power that raised Christ from the dead. This should cause us to think that there is something that God will do in us that is beyond all our imagination.
As we worship Him in prayer, let us believe that the Almighty God, who is working in our hearts, is able and willing to fulfill every one of His exceeding great and precious promises.
