“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

Do you believe this passage of Scripture? Do you really believe that God is able to do way more than you even know to ask or could ever imagine? When we truly believe that there is no limit to what God can accomplish, it changes the way we approach Him. Instead of tentatively asking Him, we will boldly petition Him…not with arrogance or entitlement, but with humility and thanksgiving.

When we are in seasons of uncertainty or waiting, it can be hard to remember the truth about God. Unanswered prayers can bring discouragement and even doubt. But time can be the best trainer, teaching us to wait with eager expectation and hope, even in the darkest of circumstances. In fact, the more desperate the circumstance, the greater the potential for God’s glory to be seen when He does answer.

So instead of allowing difficulty to draw us into worrying, we must learn to view it as a stage that is being perfectly set for the display of God’s glory. Have you ever been to a Broadway show? As the audience fills the theatre, the set stage is visible, but it is dark and empty. You can see the pieces and props, but they have no meaning until that spotlight shines and the stage comes to life as the story unfolds.

Our lives are no different. The stage is being set. A heartbreak here, a struggle there…they all serve to create the backdrop for God’s glory. You can know that one day the spotlight will shine and all those pieces will be used to tell an incredible story of God’s grace and faithfulness.

Application: Are you trusting in the limitless power of God?
