Above all we ask

“Now unto Him who is able to do far more abundantly above all we ask or think.”  (Ephesians 3:20)  Part of prayer’s purpose, I believe, is to help us embrace a dream.  The Bible reveals a God who is able to act in the world for our good and His glory in ways that we cannot imagine.  So, perhaps we should (imagine).  One of the affects of sin is severely lowered expectation.  We become “earth-bound”, desiring only to “get by”, empty of any dream of glory.  When Jesus taught us to pray “Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory”, He was insisting that His children think again of what God has and is willing to share with those who are surrendered to Him in obedience and faith.  What is God able to do?  For us?  For others?  Part of our privilege is to ask and then to imagine even more.
