He’s Greater Than I Can Imagine!

Ephesians 3:20 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, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

I have an overactive imagination. A blessing and a curse. A blessing because creativity is a wonderful gift. To be able to imagine worlds beyond this one, and create them in word, is a fantastic blessing that I thank God for every day! It’s a curse when it gets out of control. Try going for a walk in the dark woods, imagining all types of creature lurking behind each tree and bush. Try going for a swim and wondering if there are sharks down below your legs (and that’s in a pool).

Yes, I have an overactive imagination. That’s why the above mentioned verse is sooooo great. “To Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. . .”. I can imagine quite a lot, but I can’t out-imagine God’s abilities, or His love, or His gifts for me!

It’s like at Christmas, when you ask your parents for a matchbox truck; a small toy, an inch or two long. Imagine your surprise on Christmas morning when instead you unwrap a remote control, three foot long eighteen wheeler, with working headlights and horn.

We ask for matchboxes – God gives us Eighteen Wheelers! No matter what we expect from Him, He always goes above and beyond anything we could ask for or imagine.

Ain’t that wonderful.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go shark hunting in the pool.
