- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
3:20 Now to him - This doxology is admirably adapted to strengthen our faith, that we may not stagger at the great things the apostle has been praying for, as if they were too much for God to give, or for us to expect from him. That is able - Here is a most beautiful gradation. When he has given us exceeding, yea, abundant blessings, still we may ask for more. And he is able to do it. But we may think of more than we have asked. He is able to do this also. Yea, and above all this. Above all we ask - Above all we can think. Nay, exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can either ask or think.
Eph 3:20 Now to him. He has offered a prayer, and closes it with a doxology. According to the power that worketh in us. They knew something of the mighty working of the Spirit, and therefore of the Divine power. But God was able to do for them beyond all that they could conceive.

Our desir request has never and will never move God because what we always ask is always far too small compared to what He can do which is exceedingly beyound what we think or imagine

God is able to do just what he says he'll do. Honestly,this is a passage for growing christains who are tending to grow more in faith. And trusting God for a situation,he's going to do more exceedingly,abundantly to our greatest suprise amen.

I see Ephisians 3:20 as unending hope for Believers. It reassures us that God is a God of all possibilities. I thank God for His ever presence in every area of my life. His exceeding Grace is sufficient for me!!! Glory to God!

My God is awsome
as a child i have hid in my heart a love for the first man who asked for me. But my parents said no to the offer. I went on and lived in a marriage for 32 years with abuse mentally, physically and emotionally from both spouse and relatives. MY marriage was over after 32yrs. just as i asked god to allow my yongest to turn 17 and then i would go back to ministry full time. God in his goodness was so good to me. I believed that one day God would rescue me, i would be free. Free to love who i have always loved. Him God first and then the youthful pure love as a memory. But two yrs. ago God opened the door and i spoke to the man of 32yrs. God brought him to me. Not as a lover but as a support, a friend closer than a brother, an encourager and a confidont. It feel great to love without boundaries, without carnality and more than all to prove God: " Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in
us..." it is a wonderful experince when our faith produces. for with our hearts, we belief in righteousness and with our mouth we speak the word and bring our thoughts to actions and life.

Almighty Father is able to do very great things which to our physical eye seems impossible.so we should always ask Him whatever we want provided it is according to His will.He has great power to do all

When I read this verse Eph 3:20 what comes in my mind is a rewind of my life 20 years back when I did not have a clue what God would do in my life to reach this state of blessedness today. I had absolutely no idea when I asked Lord Jesus to bless & take over my life. Today I stand with my Jaws open, mouth wide open, eyes popping out just even to comprehend what great good things God did in my life. He is truly an amazing God to a worthless creature like me. You just have to give Lord Jesus one chance and experience the difference, it will blow you off.

To me this verse simply tells that there is nothing our God cannot do.He can do more than we can imagine,or think,He can do anything but fail lets just anchor our faith in Him and He will do it for us,Praise the Lord

This verse is a definite Promise from our Father who loves us beyond compare. I have been a Pastor of the same church now for 35 yrs. And God has ALWAYS amazed me at how He can do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think. This is the True Secret of the kingdom of God thru His Son Jesus Christ. The Secret is Let Him figure out the How and You Learn to commit to trusting that this is a Truth.

This verse makes me know that God is able to do greater things than what i even ask Him. It also makes me understand that God has no limit as to His abilities.Thus,He is able to give me more than i can ever ask Him.What a joy to know to know this about my God.
Pastor Larry Johnson's comment on 2013-08-21 03:55:07:
This verse allows the people of God to know that their hope is in him. He is a great and mighty God; he can and will do anything but fail.

Infact, I have been facing series of negative thoughts as to how to make it as I now find myself in a new country.However,this Eph.3:20, has given me hope that my God is able to do everything for me.I thank you God for giving hope.

Kapi Ifeanyi C.'s comment on 2013-05-16 15:43:13:
This portion(Eph.3:20) clearly shows a distinction between man's imagination & God's abilities.Man is limited in expression and imagination but God is not. No wonder He said in 1 Cor.1:25 that man's wisdom is His foolishness.When we can no longer imagine, He starts performing.He is our strength,when we are wick.This,remember that for God to "Do exceeding abundantly above All", absolute Faith and Trust is required.......thus,"According to the POWER that WORKETH in us.Praise God.
