“God can do…far more than you could ever imagine.” Eph 3:20 TM
It’s said the king of Saudi Arabia once invited a famous golfer over for a tournament. Before the man returned home the king said, “I’d like to give you a gift. Anything you want; name it.” The golfer declined politely, saying he didn’t need anything. But the king was adamant, so he conceded, “Well, Your Highness, I collect golf clubs.” He imagined perhaps a gold putter or a diamond-studded driver. Imagine his shock weeks later when he got a letter containing—the deed to a 2,000-acre golf club! Paul says, “God can do…far more than you could ever imagine…in your wildest dreams.” Kings don’t think like we do, and when you serve the King of Kings that’s doubly true! God’s plan for you is far beyond anything you could envision for yourself. The Psalmist said the Lord had dealt “bountifully” with him (Ps 13:6 NKJV). God values the smallest effort—it’s small-mindedness He objects to! If you truly believe He is directing your steps and that goodness and mercy follow you all the days of your life, expect great things from God. Leon Nacson says, “Always anticipate the best outcome for yourself and others, because when what you expect is just more of the same, that’s what you get!” Remember, “Faith is being sure of what…we do not see” (Heb 11:1 NIV). So even when you can’t “see” it, trust God to work on your behalf, to arrange for you to be in the right place at the right time, and for others to go out of their way to help you—and watch God work.
