40 Days of Increase | Day 26
—by Pastor Don Weeks, Antioch Missionary Baptist Church
We interrupt the regularly scheduled 40 Days of Increase to bring you this exciting Bible verse! But wait. This is not just a Bible verse – it is a mindset. Consider this your practical task today. Allow this promise from your God to saturate your being today. Ready?
Ephesians 3:20-21 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,  Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
- Now unto Him – That’s God.
- Now unto Him that is able – Is anything too hard for the Lord? All things are possible with God. You can do all things through Christ which strengthens you. Without Christ you can do nothing, but if you remain in Him nothing shall be impossible.
- Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think – There’s the condition. If we dare to ask, if we dare to think, God is ready to do it, to increase it, to expand it, and to magnify it, far, far beyond what you and I can even imagine. Exceeding abundantly! Above all! All we have to do is ask. All we have to do is think. Do we want Christ to increase? Really? All you have to do is ask sincerely, fervently, in Jesus name. All you have to do is think in Jesus name! This includes things as concrete as your finances, physical healing, troubled relationships, a wayward son or daughter. I challenge you today to keep asking and keep thinking. God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that you ask or think.
- According to the power that worketh in us – You are a child of God, right? You have ask Jesus to save you, correct? You believed the gospel, that is the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, right? Well the Bible says there is power working in you. Do you know what power that is? Well, it is the same power and authority that raiseD up Jesus Christ from the dead. That is the power that works in you. More powerful that a rocket. More powerful than dynamite! You ask or think it, and God will do it exceeding abundantly above what you ask or think. If something will goes right today, it will be because God loves you and His power and Spirit and Son lives inside of you. Remember, you are a child of the King.
- Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen!
I hope this helped. I know I needed this promise today, and everyday to give me a proper mindset. Let’s keep asking. Let’s keep thinking. Our God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that you or I could ask or think.
Have an awesome day, and be motivated by that power that works within you to see Christ increase in your world.
