Why "Immeasurably More"?

"Why in the world did you name your blog, 'Immeasurably More', Tara?!" Good question.

I'd encourage you read my theme verse for this blog, Ephesians 3:20-21. This verse is my heart for this community. This inspiration verse for this blog comes from the book of Ephesians in the Bible. Paul, the author of Ephesians, writes out a prayer to the Ephesian church. Now, this book isn't based upon a particular sin or correction, but instead, it encourages the church to better understand God's eternal purposes, His grace and His goals for the church.In chapter 3, Paul prays over the Ephesian church. His prayer covers a lot, but mostly it’s a verse of thanksgiving and supplication unto to the Lord.

Paul asks on behalf of the church at Ephesus that the Lord would 1) strengthen them by His Holy Spirit [16] , 2) that He would dwell in their hearts [17] and 3) that they would grasp how vast and deep God’s love is for them [19]. That’s where my tag line comes in. Even though this was originally written for the church in Ephesus, there is still deep application and truth for you and I. Ephesians 3:20-21 tells us that God is able to do immeasurably more and abundantly more, than we could ever imagine. All in His power. All for His glory. 

Now, I want to ask you a question.

Do you believe that God has the ability to do immeasurably more in YOUR life than you could ever imagine?

Yes? No? Whatever your answer may be, I'm inviting you to meet with me here and see the Lord answer that for yourself. I have seen firsthand God's ability to do immeasurably more than I could ever imagine in my own life. It hasn't always been what I pictured, but that doesn't make it any less good. God's will for your life is perfect and He always has our best interests at the center. I would love nothing more than to be able to share with you some examples of how God has done that in in my life AND encourage you guys to examine your own lives. My prayer is that you would begin to trust the God of More. The God of Promise. The God of Grace. Think of times that God has done immeasurably more in your life. Maybe the situations were rough and trying, but what was the outcome? Can you see how God used those moments to fulfill a better, eternal purpose? Do you trust that He is able to do immeasurably more?
