HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
We serve a God who always desires to do more. One of the results of prayer and fasting is an awakened desire within us to experience more of God’s love and power, both in our own lives and in the lives of those around us – the people we know personally, but also those in the neighbourhoods and cities where we live. This is what we are praying for as a church – revival to sweep across our land. We are asking to see more!
In Ephesians 3:20, the Apostle Paul writes one of the most compelling and inspiring verses to stir our expectation of what God wants to do through us, “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.”
That is a massive statement. Paul calls us to imagine all God could accomplish through us – now multiply that by infinity, and that is the expectation we should live with every single day. It is that kind of faith and expectation that causes us to believe in God for big things. We can pray for revival to cover our land because we know that is not only the heart of God but also because we know He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we ask or even think!
And notice how Paul says God will accomplish this – through His mighty power at work within us. God’s desire is to do amazing things through all of us! Revival begins with us. Each of us personally desires and asks God for more. Then through His power working within us, He uses us to change the world around us.
Today, let’s pray big prayers. Pray that God would accomplish infinitely more than we can ask or imagine in our own lives, in our families, and in our church!
Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)
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.
