Beyond Beyond ...

I’ve been hearing some of my friends talk about the “Deeper Still” Conference which was in Orlando last weekend. Beth Moore, Kay Arthur and Priscilla Shirer spoke and from what I’ve heard, it was amazing. I’d love to go one day … maybe Denver in June.

Several mentioned what Priscilla Shirer said about the verse: Ephesians 3:20 which says:

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, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Here is the cool part: She said that the Greek word the translates into immesaurably is actually two words. And get this … both of them mean beyond.

So basically, God can go beyond beyond. Get it? He can do beyond what we imagine … and beyond. It’s more than we can dream or think about … if we let Him.

I know that I am guilty of giving Him “my plan” (as if He needed any help! Pa-leese).

I also know that sometimes things seem bigger than He can fix. Or maybe something got fixed and it’s not the way we wanted it to turn out. But sit tight … so often He is working on something greater than we can ask or imagine.

Beyond Beyond. One blogger (bigmama) said she realized that her beyond beyond was just seeing her husband and daughter laughing at the table. And realizing her family was more than she could ask or imagine.

Then later today, my friend Katie shared this video … and it is so moving to see what God can do. I don’t know what your beyond beyond is … or even if it has happened yet … but people…this is what He can do.

It’s beyond beyond.

Another point Priscilla made regarding that verse is God’s “deutomous” power (I’m probably spelling that wrong), and she translated it as being DYNAMITE power or TURBO power. Beyond beyond means that God’s ways are SO MUCH BIGGER than ours that we can’t humanely comprehend just how big. Priscilla recommended that when we pray, we pray BOLDLY because we are praying to a God who CAN! She also recommended ending whatever prayer we pray with the words “or something bigger.” Meaning, I can pray, “Lord, please help my husband become a man of God…Or Something Bigger!!” :) :) :)

Oops LOL~ got too excited. I mean to write, “Or Something Better!”


(although “bigger” could work, too haha)
