Ephesians 3:20-21 – Hope More Abundantly

Daily Devotional Bible Verse

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21, ESV)

Have you ever met someone who lives without hope in their life? They feel as though they will always have an addiction, never get out of a dead beat relationship, have a low paying job, or everything in their life will go against them. That person might be you, a friend, a family member, or random person on the street begging for money. What a horrible way to live!

As Christians, we have a greater hope than we could ever think of. That hope is Christ dwelling in us (Ephesians 3:17-19). The power of Christ that is working in us is able to do more than we could ever think of when it comes to our circumstances. Christians are not immune from hopelessness though. It can manifest itself in sins we are continually struggling with or the idea that we will never be able to have regular time with Jesus. The good news is that Christ is able to do “far more abundantly than all that we ask or think”.

Take a minute to think about this: What do you feel as though will never change in your walk with Jesus? Now imagine what it would look like if it changed to how it should be. Go ahead and read today’s verse again. God will provide even more than you could have imagined just now. There is no reason to live without hope in your Christian walk anymore. Christ wants to and will bring it beyond your wildest expectations!

What “hopeless” things in your Christian walk do you need to give to Christ?
