Ephesians 3:20–21 (NLT)
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
It starts with Glory to God, all glory to God. And it ends with glory to God, through all generations forever and ever. It begins and ends with HIS glory, and it is accomplished through HIS mighty power at work within us.
So, FROM His Glory TO His Glory, THROUGH His mighty power at work within us . . . How in the world can we make this about OUR desires or expectations? How in the world can we make the "accomplish infinitely more" about what we expect, desire, plan, or assume?
Is this not a promise, an assurance, that if we will join God in what HE is doing, for HIS Glory, that through his mighty, supernatural power at work within us, that we would be able to accomplish infinitely more than we ask or think - FOR HIM, for His Glory?
That WE would be able to JOIN God in bringing glory TO God, in the church, and in Christ Jesus, through all generations forever and ever. That we would be able to take our place in the countless generations of seeing God work supernaturally in and through us, to bring HIM glory, according to HIS will and HIS plan.
It can only be FROM his glory and TO his glory if it is according to his plan and his purpose, in line with his will. So, truly, we must start there. We must seek to join God first.
