Today God says:
 "I am able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you can ask or think".

He promises me:
  "Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us". (Eph. 3:20)

My response to the word:
  God is able to do anything and everything. He knows no limits. Whatever I ask Him for in prayer, He is able to do, if I pray according to His precepts and principles. In fact, He is able to do far more than I even expect. This verse tells me that I have God's power working within me. In context, I know this means God's love and God's Spirit. The more of God's fullness that I have within me assures me that my prayers will be heard and answered.

My prayer:
  Dear Father, I know you are able to do anything and everything. I express my faith to you. Let your power work within me throughout this day.

Today's scriptures:
 "Besides, God will give you His constantly overflowing kindness. Then, when you always have everything you need, you can do more and more good things". (2 Cor. 9:8 GW) "Through His power we bring everything under His authority; He will change our humble bodies and make them like His glorified body". (Phil. 3:21 GW)  

Quote for today:
The test of true faith is not simply what a man holds in his head, but also what he loves in his heart. (R N Williams)
