God can do much, much more
than anything we can ask or imagine.
What was your favorite childhood toy? Mine was an imaginary (broomstick) horse. James Vaughn, Billy Morningstar, and I rode our mythical mounts many a mile, dishing out serious hurt to black-hatted desperados.
Stay-at-home dad, Jonathan Liu, says the five best toys of all time are a stick, a box, string, a cardboard tube, and dirt—all readily available, fitting every budget, and powered by imagination; no batteries required.
Recharge your imagination. “[God] is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Eph 3:20).
1) God is able to do “all we ask” of him; 2) He is able to do what we are reluctant to ask, but merely “imagine;” 3) He can do “more” than this; 4) “immeasurably more.”
God’s capacity for answering far exceeds
our capacity for asking—or even imagining.
