GOD IS ABLE   (Never Lose Heart by Joyce Meyer)

Eph. 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 us.”

    This is a powerful Scripture that tells us that our God is able–able to do far above and beyond anything that you and I can ever dare to hope, ask, or even think.  We need to pray, to do the asking in faith and in trust.  But it is God Who does the work, not us.   How does He do it?  According to (or by) the power (or Grace of God) that worketh in us.  Whatever you and I receive from the Lord is directly related to the amount of grace we learn to receive.  

    I was putting unbelievable stress on myself trying to change.  I was under tremendous condemnation because every message I heard seemed to be telling me to change, yet I couldn’t change no matter how hard I tried, believed, or confessed.  I was in a terrible mess because I saw all the things about me that needed to be changed, but I was powerless to bring about those changes.

    The Lord has to be our Source and our Supply.  He is the only One who can bring about changes in our lives.  I had to learn to say, “Father, although I am not worthy of Your help, I know that the changes You want in my life are not going to work unless You add the power.”
