God Can Do More Than We Can Imagine

If we knew who we are praying to, really knew, what difference could it make in our prayer lives. We tend to get muddled down in our day to day lives. Our struggles can drag us down. But if we know the person we are praying to, his power, his love for us, it can change how we pray.

Jesus while talking with the Samaritan Woman at the well said in John 4:

Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

If you knew. Think about that phrase. The Samaritan Woman had no idea who she was talking with but she was about to get an inkling realizing Jesus is the Messiah, the promised one.

If you knew you would have asked him. If we know Jesus and what he can do, what a difference it could make in our prayer lives.

Ephesians 3:20-21 says::

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.

God can do far more than we ask. He can do far more than we imagine. It reminds me of what I heard Bill Bright say one time when he was speaking at a church in Crystal Minnesota.

“When it comes to the gospel of Jesus Christ, you can never dream too big for God because God’s ability to anoint and empower is far greater than your ability to dream”

When we pray, seeking God’s glory not our own, seeking the message of Jesus going forth, we can never dream too big for God.

Sometimes I need to remind myself of this while praying for family members, praying for opportunities to share, praying about the books I am working on, praying about life problems.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. This is an A+ Awesome Lesson🤩
    God can do far more…and over and above all that we ask or think…(and As I like to add in my mind) “and far more than we can think to ask”
    If we really knew him, we would let God out of the little box we call…the mind😀

  2. I love this post dad. Yes, knowing Jesus makes a world of difference to our prayers. Thank you. I needed that. I’ve been doing a Monday fast and studying prayer. I’m currently reading through Spurgeon’ ‘Lessons from the Apostle Paul’s Prayers. Paul wanted so much for those he watched over to know the power of God and understand the depth of His love.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend. ❤ Sending you lots of love!

  3. James 4 says, ‘We don’t have because we don’t ask’ And now I know that some of us don’t ask because this great man Jesus hasn’t been revealed to us. May we seek to know Him and His power. In Jesus name 🙏

  4. This is a great reminder to keep our focus on the Lord and keep our motives pure. Through Him, we can do more than we can imagine.
