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. (NIV)
God is able to do much more than what we ask Him to do. He is also able to do much more than we imagine. So what are you thinking today? What are you imagining? Because God not only hears your words, He hears your thoughts too. Do not pray for the best and imagine the worst. Pray for the best and imagine the best. Pray and then think of ways to show that you are expecting an answer to your prayers. We often pray and then worry about the very thing we prayed about. When we worry we are imagining the worst. Choose not to worry about the things you are praying about. When you pray, completely give it over to God.
And one thing more. Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to you in answer to your prayers. (NIV)
Philemon had been praying for Paul to be restored to them and Paul told Philemon to prepare a guest room where Paul would stay when he came. He had faith that God would answer and Philemon needed to act in accordance with his request in prayer. An action starts with a thought. As you pray today, remember that your thoughts are prayers too. Make sure you ask for the best and imagine the best. Take action to show your faith. The action you take is determined by the thoughts you are thinking.
God bless you!
