God Can Do More Than We Think

"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,"
Ephesians 3:20 (NKJV)

God is a big God!  He is bigger than any of us realize and certainly bigger than any situation or problem we face.  God is big enough to be able to help us overcome anything we face and to enable us to do anything and everything He leads us to do.  Sometimes the problem is that we limit what God can do in our lives by what we think, what we have experienced in the past, and what we see happening around us.  We have to realize that God can do even more than we can think or dream!  The question is not if God is big enough but if we can really believe what He has said in His Word.

One key to this is renewing our mind with God's Word.  If our thinking is completely different than God's thinking we will always struggle with the possibilities available with God.  If we think small, and we dream small, then our expectation from God will also be small.  But if we understand that God has a great plan for us, then we will begin to dream big dreams for God.  The great thing is that no matter what big dream we might have, or what we want to do for God, that God is even bigger than that and can do even more than what we ask or think.

God has things that He wants to do in our lives and things He wants us to do for Him.  The biggest limitation that God has is with us and our thinking.  The only reason that God is not doing more in some people's lives is because they have limited Him with their thinking; their expectation of what God can do is too small.  We need to take off the limits that we have built up in our mind and renew our mind with God's Word and dream big dreams for God.  God is able to exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think; let's all believe for big things with God!
