I am beyond excited for this month’s theme and this month’s verse of the month! I believe that it is going to be a perspective changer for a lot of people, I know it was for me. The verse we’ll be meditating on over the next four weeks is Ephesians 3:20. In this blog post we’re going to break down Ephesians 3:20 and how to use it to create dreams and visions for our lives.
Point #1 - God can do it.
Ephesians 3:20 can really be broken down into 3 different parts which gives us 3 different key points. The first part of the verse,
“Now all glory to God, who is able,”
This part tells us that it is a testament to God’s power. To give the verse some context, you need to go back to the beginning of the book of Ephesians. In Ephesians 1, Paul is telling the Ephesus Church that God’s purpose in doing more than we can imagine is not for our worldly success but for His glory.
Now this is significant because it means that God’s name is on the line. This is encouraging because if God’s name is on the line then why won’t He do the miracle? Why won’t he go above and beyond what you asked of him?
God is saying “I can do it!” Do you trust God?
Point #2 - God will do it.
The second part of the verse is,
“through his mighty power at work within us,”
God’s power is at work within us through his love for us. When we experience the love of God we experience the fullness and power of God. The second key point is God will do it. Don’t look at your circumstance, don’t look at what’s around you for it’s God that is in you that gives you what you need.
God is saying to you today, “I will do it, I am what you need.”
Point #3 - Don’t be afraid to ask God for what you want.
The third part of this verse is,
“to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
This last part is significant because it implies that this verse requires an act of faith. God wants us to actually go to him. Ephesians 3:20 as a whole verse challenges us to trust God with our wildest dreams and still expect him to blow our minds.
This is the third key point, God wants you to ask him for your heart’s desires. Ephesians 3:20 is God asking you to tell him what you want so that he can give you more than that. For God is a loving father who wants to exceed your expectations. Don’t be afraid to ask God for what you want.
This month’s theme is focused on Getting Started on the dreams and goals God has placed on your heart. It is all about maximizing your potential before you can even see your potential.
Let’s recap. The full Ephesians 3:20 Bible verse,
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power
at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than
we might ask or think.”
