Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in you.
Do you want God to blow your mind? I am sure your answer to this question is yes. One thing that could prevent that from happening is to expect the ordinary when it is God’s will to do the extraordinary. The primary reason we fall into that trap is because our expectation is typically based on our ability or what we can do rather than on what God can do. The reality is that we are not the ones bringing the promises of God to past in our lives, God is. Therefore, since God is not ordinary, expect Him to do the extraordinary in your life. Ephesians 3:20 is a reminder that He is able to do far more than we can think or even imagine. Let us not limit Him to only do what we can do; He is bigger than that.
Elevate your expectations above your circumstances. It is hard to believe for great things to happen in your life when things are far from great. But to position yourself for God to blow your mind, you must expect great things even when things are not going great. Things were not going great for the Canaanite woman in Matthew 15:22-28 whose daughter was demon possessed. She had to deal with that situation for a while. But she expected Jesus to do the extraordinary. She never just asked Jesus to deliver her daughter, she expected it to happen. So when Jesus told her that He was only sent to the Israelites, she refused to accept that because what Jesus was saying was not aligned to her expectation. She elevated her expectation above her situation and Jesus did the extraordinary.
What is it you want God to do in your life? As far-fetched as it may seem, know that God is not confined to what is normal. Expect the extraordinary and he will blow your mind.
Life Application: Position yourself for God to blow your mind by elevating your expectation over your situation.
Prayer: Lord, my mind cannot even conceive all that you are able to do. But, I am trusting you to do exceeding abundantly above what I may ask or even imagine. In Jesus’ name, amen.
