In this world we live with so many expectations. We have many super heroes in our cinemas and comics. We are fascinated by them because they can do so much more that we as humans cannot. They posses this extraordinary supernatural powers and make things happen. How we long to be like them or at least have them with us so that facing this world would be easier! We work towards something expecting or imagining something to be the output but we always end up with less.
By ourselves we can never get more. But with God there is always more. He is the one who is able to do not just more, but immeasurably more. Immeasurably more than we can possibly ask or even imagine, the verse says. If it is a double profit is what you are asking God or imagining would happen; with God it is definitely going to be immeasurable returns as your profit. All we need to do is trust in him and ask Him. His resurrection power is at work in us. The power that worked in Jesus to bring him back to life after He died on the cross is at work in us. Many a times we forget that our Lord Jesus is much more than a super hero we come across in this comics or cinemas. And He is always with us and will make all things happen in our lives according to His perfect will.
With that kind of power working in us and for us, can we expect anything less? So be of courage and give glory to the Most High!! God wants us to obey Him come what may. When we do exactly what God expects of us, He blesses us in more than many ways, much more than we can ask or imagine as the verse says. Its a promise of God so lets glorify Him throughout all generations, forever and ever!!
