Daily Devotion - He Outperforms Our Hopes

It’s been 21 years since it captured my heart. 21 years since I fell in love with the words from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, and it’s been my favorite verse ever since.

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

If there’s one thing I know about God, it’s that He’ll always outperform our hopes and exceed our expectations. Maybe not in the way that we think it should go, but according to His wisdom and power. While we look for the good in life, He gives us the best. He knows our mind, He searches our soul, and provides for us in ways we could never provide for ourselves.

What a beautiful thing it is to have the King of all Kings and Lord of all Lords working on our behalf for our good. The same God Who hung the stars and the moon in the sky is planting your days with wisdom and love.
