Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 3:20


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.

  • Jennifer Miller for verse 20
    As His blood bought and redeemed children through Jesus, God has revealed to us in Ephesians 3:20 No matter how humanly impossible the situations and circumstances of life present us, if we choose to submit to the leadership of God and the Holy Spirit, that which is humanly impossible is now possible because God loves to confound the wisdom of men, even ours to carry out his purposes. We as His children have to always be careful to not downgrade our expectations of GOD omnipotence by trying to limit God to our thoughts into and about our prayers, desires, hopes or dreams, because God is, will, is willing to show us when our faith stands not in the wisdom of man, but in the power of God, GOD WILL do SUPERaundantly, far over and above all we dare to ask or think.
