{Ephesians 3:20, NLT}

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Some are crying to God for a great revival. I can say that that is the prayer of my heart unceasingly. Oh, if God would only revive His believing people! I cannot think in the first place of the unconverted formalists of the Church, or of the infidels and skeptics, or of all the wretched and perishing around me, my heart prays in the first place: “My God, revive Thy Church and people.” It is not for nothing that there are in thousands of hearts yearnings after holiness and consecration: it is a forerunner of God's power. God works to will and then He works to do. These yearnings are a witness and a proof that God has worked to will. Oh, let us in faith believe that the omnipotent God will work to do among His people more than we can ask. “Unto him,” Paul said, “who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think…. unto him be glory.” Let our hearts say that. Glory to God, the omnipotent One, who can do above what we dare to ask or think!

Questions to consider:

  • Why does true revival start within the Church?
  • In what ways do you see the need of revival in your life?
  • Why should we be comforted by the truth that God can do infinitely more than we can imagine?
