God Is Able

Part 2

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.   Ephesians 3:20-21

In Ephesians 3:20, Paul says that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we could even ask or think.

God has no limitation in what He can do. Here in verse 20, God’s ability to answer prayer is forcefully stated by the apostle, and we’re going to see first of all that God is able because He is the Living God. He’s the Living God who is not weak, but is powerful. We have a Living Savior; that can’t be said of other religions.

Some say that God is dead, but we beg to differ. God is not dead. Some say that God never existed in the first place. The arguments for God not existing are weak, and when you look at the case for the existence of God, versus the nonexistence of God, it is quite clear that there must be a God. Now you say, “I don’t like the way things are in the world, so I don’t want to believe in a God who would allow the world to be the way it is.” The Bible has a good explanation as to why the world is the way it is: God didn’t create the world this way; the world ended up this way because of its revolt against God. But God has a plan. He is able because He is the Living God, and as the Living God, He’s the all-powerful God.
