God of the Impossible

“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us” ‭‭(Ephesians‬ ‭3:20‬).

Do you have a need that seems impossible to meet. Give it to God because that is his speciality. The Isrealites were trapped between the Red Sea with Pharaoh’s army in hot pursuit. They had no other way out but to lift their faith and wait for God to respond. God made a way through that red Sea for his children to travel to safety and then closed the sea on Pharaoh’s army (Exodus 14).

Mary and Martha wept for their brother Lazarus who had died. Lord if you had been here, my brother would not have died (John 11:21). This was Martha’s expression to Jesus when he arrived. What Martha did not know was that Jesus had been there all the time. God’s ways are higher than our ways and time is not a concept to him. He is never too late and never too early. He defies time and exists in the realms of infinity. Not even death signaled a boundary for him. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead to signify his strength, wisdom, power and might.

“What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him” (Matthew 8:27)? Even Jesus disciples did not have him figured out and marveled at his miracles. These men spent every day with Jesus and still were confounded by his resurrection from the dead.

It is not over until God says it’s over and God has the final say. He is our Physician and defies what medicine and science concludes. There is no end to his understanding and his power. I know what that report says and I know that it seems impossible for things to have any other outcome than what man predicts, but the Bible is full of examples of how God transcends the impossible. Expect God to work beyond what looks impossible.

  1. I know this verse very well and I have often stood on it during prayer. Normally the phrase that speaks to me the most the “exceeding abundantly” in the KJV. However, today the word that stood out was “all”. He can do abundantly above ALL. Not above some, so there are criteria that we will have to meet. ALL. Not some, so we don’t know if this particular thought or request cannot be done. He said ALL! So what should my response be? Ask God to give me the same mind as Christ, then think and ask as big as I can, then water that with praise and worship, then I’ll get to declare like Nathaniel Bassey “see what the Lord has done”. I literally just listened to that song before reading this devotional. I just love how God connects things for us.

  2. Understanding that we serve and belong to God, who has no limits comes with revelation of who he is. Thank you for reminding us that we can know that God is faithful and over abounding in “all that we ask or think”
    God bless you.

  3. AMEN, Anneta! The reason my blog is called “Seeking Divine Perspective” is that when we are upset or scared or sad, it’s because we’re seeing things the way the world does, whereas if we could see things as GOD sees them, we’d know “It’s all good.” 😉
