"God is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think; to Him be glory in the church."
- Ephesians 3:20-21
 
"God's in His heaven and all is well," goes the familiar saying.  But is the saying really something that a Christian can affirm?

Scripture tells us clearly that God is very near to us, and that when we call on Him, we need never worry about whether we are heard or not.
 
When Christians say, "God is in heaven," they mean that God's power is strong enough to accomplish whatever God wills. When they pray to God for anything, they need never worry as to whether God has the power or the desire to answer their prayers.
 
I think of Paul, who was no prayer worrier. He prayed for God's people that they might know the strength, love and fullness of God, who is able to do far more than we can ask or even think. Paul was a true prayer warrior.

      And pray for others' needs.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY- Fervent prayer dispels anxious care.
