Ephesians 3:14-21

Psalm 33

Luke 12:49-53

Now to him who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine… Eph. 3:20

Lord, I accept this truth in faith.  I believe that you can indeed accomplish everything I ask for or can imagine.  You are the God of all creation.  You made every atom and gave life to all that is living in the heavens and on earth.  Your perfect plan included becoming like me in every way except sin.  O Lord, I can imagine a lot but you can exceed all my hopes and dreams through your Spirit living and working within me.  You have no limits and can do all things.  Lord, may I never sell you short or fail to trust in your love and power.  The gospel tells me today that everywhere your truth is there will be love and division.  So many fail to see your grace working in the world to accomplish your plan.  Your love for all mankind exceeds anything we can do or understand.  Lord, please show me the full love of the Father who holds each of us in existence for his glory.  May I respond with the confidence that with open hearts we can erase all divisions in this world and bring about peace.  Amen.
