A Daily Devotion for Friday, July 30


Ephesians 3: 20-21


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.

I am realizing this single sentence incorporates the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit! Trying to comprehend a God ”who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” is truly humbling. I have no way to understand such a God, yet I was created to seek Him. God rewards me with His love and grace.

Father God, you are beyond my understanding, yet I will spend my life seeking you and loving you. Amen

Dearest Lord, thank you for sending your Son and the Holy…

These verses tell me that God is able to do super abundantly more than anything that you or I could ever dare, hope , ask or even think. I need to pray harder to do the asking in faith and in trust. But it is God who does the work according to his power. He wants us to experience incredible, life-changing love, mercy, and compassion not only from him, but from those around us. And h…

Ephesians 3: 20-21


I perceive in these two verses a benediction. Wikipedia says this about the term.

“From the earliest church, Christians adopted ceremonial benedictions into their liturgical worship, particularly at the end of a service. Such benedictions have been regularly practiced both in the Christian East and West . . . The Anglican Church retained the principle of benediction after the Protestant Reformation, and as a result, the benediction or blessing ends most Anglican, as well as Methodist, services of worship.”


A formal worship service does not feel “complete” to me without a blessing or benediction sending the worshippers back out into the world. What struck me in reading this morning’s passage is the need for all of…
