Rest in His Ability

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” Ephesians 3:20

You may not have it all together, but God does. You may not know everything, but God knows all, and He sees all. You can’t change anyone’s heart, but God can. Instead of focusing on your inabilities, rest in God’s supernatural ability. This is what creates peace in our lives. This is what removes any pressure we’ve placed on ourselves to have it all together, to have it all figured out or to change anyone. It will lift the heavy burden from off of your shoulders.

Resting in God’s ability releases His power to go to work in your life and your situations. If we are to rest in His ability, it would be a good idea to understand what He is able to do:

God is able to save us to the uttermost (see Hebrews 7:25).
God is able to keep us (see 2 Timothy 1:12).
God is able to help us when we are tempted to sin (see Hebrews 2:18).
God is able to help us stand when we’ve fallen (see Romans 14:4).
God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think (see Ephesians 3:20.

Prayer: Father God, thank You for speaking directly to my heart. I put my focus on You and what only You can do. You are my God, and nothing is too hard for You! Help me stay mindful of resting in Your ability. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
