“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
Did you know the universe contains an estimated 200 billion trillion stars (2,000,000,000, etc.)? Isn’t that quite a lot? Imagine someone having that many descendants, combined with the fact that the person is nearly a century old and has never had a child. Seems impossible, doesn’t it?
God, on the other hand, did not think so. In Genesis 15, He tells Abram that he will have as many descendants as the stars (Genesis 15:5), despite the fact that he has no offspring yet.
God may have painted pictures in your mind of what He wants to do in your life this year, and it may appear impossible. He may have told you about nations He wants you to influence for the Gospel, mountains of influence He wants you to dominate for His Kingdom, and you, like Sarah, Abraham’s wife, are laughing, wondering if this is possible (Genesis 18:12).
Here’s a reminder of who dwells in you: God: the Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1), the infinitely large God who can do all things, the One who holds the earth in His hands (Psalm 24:1-2, 95:3-5), and with whom nothing is impossible (Jeremiah 22:37).
This God is on the inside of you, and as our anchor scripture tells us, He is capable of exceedingly, abundantly exceedingly what you can ever imagine through the power of His Spirit in you, the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 8:11).
Abraham’s faith can teach us something. “And Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith,” the Bible says in Genesis 15:6. You, like Abraham, should have faith in God.
Listen, you are limitless; with God, you can accomplish anything He has called you to do. Don’t let fear or doubt keep you from experiencing all that God has in store for you this year. You are more than capable!
I am limitless. This year, I will do everything God asks of me. Nothing is impossible to me because I am filled with God’s Spirit.
