Ephesians 3:20-21

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

These verses continue the previous Scripture post's passage. Paul here finishes his prayer. God can do not only more than what we ask, but more than what we can even imagine or conceive of! These words have become more and more meaningful to me through the years. Sometimes when we ask God for things, we ask in a half-hearted way, as if we don't know if He will really answer our prayer. Or we ask thinking we know what's best and God had better answer according to our wishes! This passage reminds us God is God. He knows and does what's best for His children. And He does amazing things that are beyond what we could think of. In prayer, we can ask God boldly, and we have faith God will answer in the way that's best for us. And God blows us away with the awesome things He does!
