Week 3 | Friday - Beyond
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us...
EPHESIANS 3:20, NASB
Is there something in your life so impossible that you can only ask God to do it? Is there something so impossible that you can hardly imagine it? Ephesians 3:20 says that you serve a God who can meet that need and exceed your wildest imagination. He goes beyond what you can ask or think.
When it comes to what you can give in the Beyond journey, there are three levels of giving to consider. The first level is what you can afford. This is what you can easily give. It’s what you can fit into your budget. It’s a gift, and it’s entirely possible.
The second level of giving is what you can sacrifice. This goes a step further. It’s no longer safe. At this level you have to give something up. Maybe it’s your morning coffee, a new flat-screen TV, a family vacation, or a house renovation. Whatever it is, it’s a sacrifice—but it’s still possible.
This leads you to the final level of giving, which is what you can trust God to do through you. This is the supernatural level. This is the miraculous. This is beyond what you can calculate and beyond what you can sacrifice. It’s something only God can do. How amazing would it be to hear God, step out in faith, and go beyond yourself to experience what only God can do?
WHAT IS GOD SAYING TO ME?
HOW CAN I APPLY IT?
TALK TO GOD ABOUT IT.
