“God can do anything, you know — far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.” (Ephesians 3:20, The Message)
I’ve always liked The Message version of this passage. As I read it today I felt that now is the time for far more. What have you been asking for? What have you been imagining? God can do far more than all of these and now is the time.
I like the second part, “He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.” What we have to get is that the far more that He desires to do in our lives will be done by Him working within us. He doesn’t push us into anything, He wants us to be willing. As we become willing, He works within us giving us the tools and strategies. Far more doesn’t just fall in our laps, far more happens through your hands and mine as we submit to His way and His call for our lives.
Are you desiring for far more? Begin to work willingly with the plan He has for you, listen closely to instruction and be open to change. God is moving greatly right now and He’s looking for willing vessels. It’s time for far more, what you’ve been asking for and imagining starts in your hands.
