Ephesians 3:20 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,
Most of us think and ask too small. We go to our Heavenly Father in prayer asking as if we believe He rations our blessings. When Jesus encountered a blind man and asked him what he really wanted the blind man answered that he wanted to see. Jesus gave him is sight.
I have often thought that today so many would have asked for so much less. They might have asked for a dog or a cane to help them get around. They might have asked for someone to help them to take care of themselves. It took a lot of boldness to ask for his sight but he learned a valuable lesson that we too should learn. He is able to do even more than we think or ask.
Are you a little shy about asking God for what you really need? Sometimes even when we pray for something specific that we really need we do not really expect God to grant it.
Believe that God wants to bless us. He is able to do more than we think or ask. Increase your faith by increasing your expectations.
