Focus On Believing
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, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Which are you? The glass is half empty or the glass is half full? When it comes to reading today’s verse, it really makes a difference. It is easy to let our “half empty” attitude take a “glass is full and running over” type of verse we have today and bring it right down. What do you think when you read, “Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine”? Bill Johnson in his book When Heaven Invades Earth writes, “Faith is not the absence of doubt. It is the presence of belief.” So maybe today we shouldn’t worry about our doubts. It’s okay to have them. We all do. But for today, perhaps we should just focus on believing what God has said. He CAN do more than you and I can ever imagine. Ask
God to help you believe this today. Give Him your worries, fears and problems. Let Him control your life. He is more than able!
Father, today, instead of trying to rid myself of doubt, I choose to believe You are able to do more than I can ever imagine. Today I choose faith. Today I choose to trust You. Today I choose Your love for me and will live in this hope, that You are alive and are able. In Jesus’ name.
