immeasurably MORE

At 12Stone this past Sunday, we began a new message series titled ‘I NEED A BREAKTHRU’.  While the focus of the first message in the series was on Philippians 3:10-17 (NIV) , I was especially drawn to the following passage of Ephesians 3:20-21 (NIV)

Now 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, to him be glory IN the church and IN Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.  Ephesians 3:7-21 (NIV)

Immeasurably (as defining the power of God that is at work withIN you and me) is defined as: incapable of being measured, indefinitely extensive – I might add beyond human comprehension … or as Buzz Lightyear says, ‘To infinity and beyond!’

Lord, help me to stop limiting you in all I ask or imagine … to stop boxing you in based on my limited comprehension, knowledge and expectations … help me to in faith to embrace the IMMEASURABLY MORE you are able to do!

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
