40 days of truth: day 19

My God Is Able

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

The thought has been that more prayer equals a more vibrant prayer life. So I’ve lived with an internal push of more, and then more again.

But what if the call of heaven isn’t pray more, but pray bigger?

What if all of my more prayer has been a lot of safe prayer?

Moses asked God to show Himself to him. God did what Moses asked.

Peter asked to walk on water. So Jesus called him out of his boat.

Elisha asked God to open the eyes of his servant.

Then he asked God to blind the eyes of the enemy.

So God made the unseen visible and the seen invisible, because someone dared to ask.

Elijah asked God to bring a widow’s son back to life. A grieving mother received her son back.

James and John asked Jesus if they should call down fire to kill a bunch of Samaritans. That brought a hard no from Jesus, but the point is they had the audacity to ask, and believe it could happen!

This is truth: Whatever I am asking of Him, He can do far more. So I tell myself…ask.

Ask Him to save the far off one who looks too far gone.

Ask Him to provide for a need that feels too big.

Ask Him to move in ways that sound crazy, even to you.

Remember truth so that you will pray in truth.

My God is able.

  1. I went to a prayer study day locally a month ago, Karla. This was led by Pete Greig who wrote ‘How to Pray’, ‘God on Mute’ and others. One of the books Pete Greig recommended was ‘Letters by a Modern Mystic’ by Frank Laubach. I just checked and it is on Amazon in the US – link below. Well worth a read. Just about to read my copy a second time.
