Words from the Heart for Thursday November 19th, 2020
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21 (NIV)
More Than we Can Ask or Imagine
The Documentary Channel is currently showing the film Imagining Canada. With a backdrop of historic New York Times photographs, Imagining Canada studies the age-old obsession: what do the Americans think of us? Throughout the 20th century, New York Times photographers took more than 20,000 pictures of Canada from coast to coast to coast. Most of these photos have never been seen by the public. Imagining Canada takes this photographic record and uses it as a lens to see how Americans look at Canada.
Walt Disney coined the phrase “imagineer.” These are the men and women who have imagined every Disney cartoon and theme park long before they came into being. God has blessed human beings with the gift of creativity and imagination. It is that gift that has led to some of the most glorious, inventive and enjoyable human creations. God granted to human beings the ability to dream, hope and imagine. But God has so much more for us. In Ephesians 3:20-21 we read, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” God has so much He wants to do in us and through us. All of the spiritual resources of Glory are available to us. It is impossible for us to grasp the full impact of that statement. We are limited to what we have experienced here on earth. Heaven is so much more – immeasurably more than we can imagine. So, for God’s glory, imagine big and ask big.
These have been words from the heart.
