Over and above the call of duty by Elaine Davenport

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]

To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it). Ephesians 3: 2-21

The Word of God is alive! It lives! If you don’t believe me, find a beautiful passage in the Word and memorize it. When you meet someone, in conversation at the appropriate time, speak that passage to them. Watch their countenance. Ask the Holy Spirit beforehand to touch their hearts with the Word. Ask that they be prepared to be open to it. Don’t force the Word on anyone. Be spirit led.

We don’t deserve God’s mercy sometimes. But God, always goes over and beyond the call of duty and I thank Him for that.
