“Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for His miraculous power constantly energizes you.” –Ephesians 3:20 (TPT)
In Philippians 4:6, Paul encourages the church to “be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude.” A couple weeks ago during our Infinite Youth Holiday Party, we started the #dailymiraclechallenge, encouraging each and every one to pray for a miracle each day. Praise reports and testimonies came one after another – from getting parking spots in front of a mall on a Sunday to getting accepted to an Honors Program. This 2020, God is reminding us to entrust to Him every detail of our lives – no matter how big or small it may be. He wants us to rely on Him completely, casting our cares upon Him for He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). Learning to pray about everything (including the simple things such as finding a missing key or getting out of traffic when in a hurry) increases our faith and draws us closer to God. It develops our character and prepares us for the things God has in store for us.
God has already given us the greatest miracle in our lives when He sent Jesus to die on the cross and rise from the dead. He made a way for us to be with Him for all eternity. If God already granted the biggest miracle we could ever ask for, then surely, He will grant us the small miracles we pray for and give us His perfect peace for our worries. He is a prayer-answering God, who knows our every need and hears our every cry. He is the God of miracles – big and small – and nothing is ever too hard for Him (Jeremiah 32:27). With Him, all things are possible!
So, let us never doubt God’s miraculous power that can work in and through us. Let us continue to be rooted in His presence so that we may know how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. Be blessed and #Blesstheworld! “Glory to God in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” –Ephesians 3:21
