“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21).

He Who is more than able will do what He has promised.  Do you understand that our Lord, who created all things, is more than able to do what He says He will do?  Our hope is not based upon what we can think up, but upon the One through whom all things have their being.  Do not be led by your strength, but rest in the strength of the One who has come to lead the way.  In Him is all life, hope, and the promise of a good future.

Lord, move me away from looking to myself or even others for the comfort that only You can give.  Guide me in Your goodness so that I would now and forever abide in You knowing that You are the source of all goodness.  Let me not be hindered by the lies of this world but be transformed by the renewing of my mind to rest in You, Your will, and Your ways.  In You alone is all hope.

Lord Jesus, You are the way.  Only in walking with You will I find all that I desire.  Only in listening to You will I hear the words I need to hear.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way of life so that I would follow the narrow path You have established.  Lead me, O Lord, now and forever to be guided by You alone.  Teach me this day and fill my heart with the love and hope You know I need.  Amen.
