God is Able

Page 1

Today many people are stressed due to finances, illness or relationships. We struggle to make sense of our pain. This poignant illustration follows a young mother's honest, yet grateful prayer and encourages us to focus on God's provision.

A lot of us pray a similar prayer especially when we're facing an impossible situation. It's difficult to have faith especially when we don't know what's going to happen. In this next video, Priscilla Shirer, talks about Ephesians 3:20–21 and its implication that as God's children, we can be confident and sure that no matter what is happening in our lives, God is able. 

Priscilla is a popular conference speaker and Bible study teacher. She is the author of numerous books and Bible studies including, One in a Million, Life Interrupted, New York Times bestseller, The Resolution For Women and recently, God is Able.

Ephesians 3:20-21 (ESV)

20Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

God is not limited to what we can ask or even imagine. He is able to do beyond that! Priscilla said, "God works outside and inside the spectrum of our human capabilities are able to conjure up. That means He is limitless and boundless."

Priscilla said that God's limitless, unstoppable and boundless power, "…allows us to be able to relax and rest in the difficulties of our lives, the circumstances that we cannot figure out that confuse us and that seem to be outnumbering us or overwhelming us. It allows us to just be at peace knowing that we serve a God that isn’t shaken by the things that shake us."
