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, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
I want to start today by telling you that God is able to do more for you than you could ever hope for or imagine. He can carry you through situations that seem impossible.
Just think about what God did for Nehemiah when he asked for permission to go back to
To Nehemiah’s surprise, not only did he receive a blessing, but a military escort for protection as well!
Isn’t that just like God? If we are faithful enough to ask for His blessing, we receive it and much more. The best news about this story is that the same thing can happen today! We serve and talk to the same God today that Nehemiah did thousands of years ago.
The problem comes when we think we create our success. And as a result, God doesn’t get the glory for what He has done and He isn’t honored.
We need to learn to say, “Look what God did,” not “Look what I did!”
God wants to answer your prayers. He wants to bless you when you honor Him. So ask God to exceed your expectations today and don’t forget to praise Him for His blessing!
GOD IS ABLE TO DO MORE FOR YOU THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE.
