Something I was talking to God about today is how we pray about things in our lives and families. I said to him I really could have done without this writing material because of course my experiences give me writing material and I really would have rather done without this bit of experience what people are going through and what I have learnt from it.
I have been praying about this particular situation for a long time, as a matter of fact a few years. When I would pray for all my friends and family every morning this particular need was always brought up. It was like praying in advance for something that hadn’t happened yet way before it would happen but that would happen one day. So it was a little bit baffling to me in line with thinking about Ephesians 3:20 He is able to do immeasurably more…
What I am wondering is how you get cohesion of these two things when the thing you were praying for, for some reason goes terribly wrong? How do these things have cohesion? You pray for life, for protection and destiny and you believe that He is able to do immeasurable more and then sometimes things go really bad, worse than you could have even thought of, so much so that you never thought it could happen?
Then you start thinking that ‘that is not immeasurably more!’. In the past that is where I have let that little thought catch me! It becomes ‘THE CATCH’ because whenever I heard that verse Ephesians 3:20 – now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more I think of all the possibilities and I also think of all the things that haven’t gone right, all the negative hard things. I am able to process that now but I don’t know how that fits together, so I am not sure how that works together because this had been my experience, I had already prayed in advance. So somehow, somewhere, some reason it does apparently fit together into the big picture of our lives.
This does not destabilize my new-found tiny grasp of understanding of Ephesians 3:20. I know He is able to do immeasurably more, but we just aren’t sure how it works in conjunction with the plan of our lives and every individuals life.
