Blessed & Highly Favored in the Lord

I have just completed my daily Bible reading and am soooooooooooooo excited! Today's reading was Part 3 in a series about having a vision. Vision and dreams are things that I talk a lot about in my coaching practice, my Blog Talk Radio show and almost every publication or workshop presentation that I write.

Today's reading was so inspirational to me because it was a confirmation and reaffirmation of everything that I have been doing personally as well as those things that I coach others. The reading pointed me to Ephesians 3:20 which reads

"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."

This verse is absolutely BRILLIANT!!!!!

God can do anything. His loving kindness, goodness and mercy allows us to accomplish feats that go far beyond our wildest imagination. The human mind is great. People are able to envision amazing things and use our skills and creativity to bring those things into fruition. We do not do this alone. We do it because of God's love and the power, His power, that works in us. If we can think it, it can be done. Someone imagined visiting the moon and, lo and behold, it was accomplished. Someone else thought that people all around the world should be able to talk to one another and conduct business; then along came cellular phones and the internet. Yes, the human mind is great but God's ability is even greater!

The word says "exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think." Let's meditate on this for a moment. Think about what each of these words mean. Exceedingly is defined as "to an extreme or unusual degree." Abundantly means "plentiful" or "rich". Above is defined as "beyond the level or reach of". Power is "ability" or "strength". God is saying that He can unusually provide far beyond the level of riches that our minds can so commonly reach through the ability that we already possess within ourselves. That is AWESOME!!!!!
So my word to you today is to keep dreaming, keep creating vision and keep speaking those things you want and desire as though they already are. Nothing is impossible but remember even dreams take work so put your personal power to good use. You can do anything through Christ Jesus who strengthens you!

To your dynamic success and happy living!
