Ephesians 3:20 (KJV) ~ Unto Him that is able He is to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think.

Ephesians 3:20 (KJV) ~ Unto Him that is able He is to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think.

Bigger than all my problems, bigger than all my fears,

God is bigger than any mountain I can, or cannot, see,

Bigger than all my questions, bigger than anything,

God is bigger than any mountain I can, or cannot, see.

God is far bigger than I can ever imagine! God is a “doing” God! He is a God who is well able to do anything! He is able to do anything, far beyond our every human thought or imagination. The Bible says in Ephesians 3:20 (KJV), “Unto Him that is able He is to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think.”

There is no impossible circumstance too far gone that God cannot minister too,

No problem too big the God cannot solve,

No sickness He cannot heal,

No miracle which God cannot do,

No prayer which He cannot answer,

No sinner too lost in their sin that God cannot save,

No back-slider too far from God that God a cannot restore,

No city too hard that God cannot bring a mighty revival too.

For our God is well able to do far above all that we ask or think…He is able to do!

If we are honest with ourselves, we must admit that we, more often than not, tend to fix our eyes on the problem. Then as we dwell on it, we allow it grow until it becomes to us this huge mountain before us. However, in the eyes of our great and awesome God, it is but a speck of dust, which He can blow away by the gentlest breath. It can become all too easy to take our eyes off the awesomeness of God, to fleetingly gaze upon the circumstances, rather than fix our eyes upon our Almighty ADONAI, our EL SHADDAI, our God who is able to do far above all we can ask or think. The Bible says this in Jeremiah 32:17 (KJV), “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee!”

My friend, let me encourage you today with these words from Ephesians 3:20 (KJV), “Unto Him that is able He is to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think.”

Our God is able to do whatever it is you need Him to do.

Our God is able to heal you.

Our God is able to rescue you.

Our God is able to save you.

Our God is able to meet all your needs.

Our God is able to turn things around for you.

Our God is able to restore you.

Our God is able heal your broken marriage.

Our God is able forgive you.

Our God is able to show you mercy and grace.

Our God is able answer all your prayers.

Our God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think.

Our God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.

Our God is a great big God, bigger than all our problems; He is bigger than anything.

Think on this little song by Andy Griffith, but written by ‘Lange/Hearth/Burke.’

‘Who made made the mountains, who made the trees, who made rivers flow to the sea?

And who sends the rain when the earth is dry. Somebody bigger than you and I.

Who made the flowers to bloom in the spring, who made the song for the Robin’s to sing.

And who hung the moon in the stray sky, somebody bigger than you and I.

He will give you love to guide you, and He will walk beside you just as He walks with me.

When I am weary filled with despair, who gives me courage to go on from there?

And who gives me faith that will never die. Somebody bigger that you and I.

We may never grasp how awesome God is, or the enormity of God. Or even how omnipotent, omnipresent or omniscient He is. However, may we gasp the fullness of this promise from the Lord in, Ephesians 3:20 (KJV) ~ Unto Him that is able He is to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think. Because our God is an awesome God!

God bless you my friend, Matthew.

  1. This is a timely word, thanks for the encouragment. Keep up the good works. May God continue to bless you.

  2. Having been swallowed whole in the belly of the beast and saved by God’s Grace and Mercy I say without a doubt in my mind he’s able. God never gave up on me and for this I am trully grateful. When all hope was gone God’s plan for my life took hold and the beast had to flee.

  3. Thank you for these wonderful words. I am facing a very rough period in my life and I didn’t know where to find this scripture so I Google it and that led me to your website. Thanks again and may God continue to use you to help others.

  4. Thankyou for these great comments on my favourite scripture of all.
    God Bless.
    I look forward to future posts on your blog.
    I need to eat meat [ 1 corinthians 3.2] and this post was meaty and rich in nourishment.

  5. My friend, thank you for this good word. I know that I can make this journey now. God is able…….

  6. God is definitely able. He told me this, personally, in 2005 and I am a witness to the fact that He always demonstrates His immense and immeasurable ability. Praise God!

  7. I just stumbled into this your site and this verse which I have read for more than many times made a different meaning to me today. God bless you for indicting me for not believing God enough that he can do far exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think. Keep up your good work

  8. That’s what I’m talking about.

  9. This scripture and your words spoke volumes in my life today. I really needed these words of encouragement. I have everything you could dream of…good health, family, job and stability. Inside I am a broken woman because years I haven’t put 100 percent of my faith in God. I always knew he was able to do anything, I just always had to have my hand in it and not trust him. This day will be the last day that I put my trust in anything else, including my hands. I give God trust and full direction over my life today!

    • What a powerful statement! Thankfully, with ALL my being, I put my trust in God. My mother has taught me for years that God can do anything if I only trust and believe. “He has NEVER EVER let me down nor fallen short of His Word.” Be stong in the Lord and continue trusting in Him.

  10. Wow! You said it so well! We receive His awesome power & miracles in our lives! We pray for his power in your life as well! God bless you for putting this on the web! I believe thousands will read & receive it!!! Thank you!

  11. Thank you so much for posting this scripture. My girlfriend called me this morning requesting prayer for her dad. I did not want to text her the scriptures we use over and over and over…I wanted to send a scripture that’s fresh, something that would grab her attention. When I read Jeremiah 32:17 (KJV), “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee,” my heart was overwhelmed! Again, thanks and may God continue to bless and keep you.

  12. I am blessed

  13. Thank you! I mentioned some hard times I am having and a friend replied with this post. It really speaks to my needs.
