Loved by God Part 7 - Beyond Your Wildest Dreams

They were separated. The rift was huge. She began to make plans as to how she would support herself. He went his way. That would have been the end of the story… but for God.

She had friends who prayed with her. Weekly they met and sought the help and wisdom of God for their friend in distress. Daily she asked God to give her insight that she did not have. Daily she asked God for a smile on her face for her little one. Sometimes hourly she cried out to God to stabilize her shaky body and mind. And God met her needs. Throughout the storm He was her anchor. Oh the tears flowed through some sleepless nights… but God was her strength. Little by little, time and again he led her to a resource, an insight, an encouragement.

“Now to him (Jesus) 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, for ever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20

More than just surviving! More than just getting by! More than just hanging in there! God was giving her strength, wisdom and insight. He was holding her through the storm. There were tears and it was hard. But the peace that held her heart was an anchor for her soul. Yes, God’s power at work gave her more than she could imagine!

Believe God today for more than you can even imagine in whatever situation tears at your heart. If you are facing a challenge or even a crisis, invite Jesus to be at work in power in your situation. Get help from praying friends to seek God and focus on Him. Ask for increased faith and watch with expectancy. God’s love and encouragement can lift you up when you don’t even think it’s possible! And when you look back on your journey and see how he has anchored your soul… give him the glory!

prayer & reflection

Father God,
As your child you offer me so much more than I can ever imagine. Your power at work within me is an amazing miracle. Help me to connect with those who will encourage me to cling to you in the storms of my life. Forgive my lack of faith and give me a tenacity of faith to look for you, to be amazed by you and to give you the glory when the horizon clears and I see how far you have brought me.
In Jesus strong name I pray, Amen.
