Always The Best

Ministry Message from Minister Rhonda Howell.




"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen".   Ephesians 3:20


This passage in Ephesians is one of Pastor Dianne E. Haynes' favorite scriptures.  Sadly, very few of us, as the Body of Christ, venture outside the "asking" or "thinking" box.  We serve a BIG God, we serve a MIGHTY God, yet we settle in the realm of our own limitations, in the realm of what we ourselves can do or think up.

God is King.    It is an insult to a king when his subjects hold a limited, miserly view of his word.  We MUST take time for the Word of God.  We must take time DAILY to get into the presence of God. 

In Luke 22:42, Jesus prayed, "...Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless, not my will, but thine be done.".  There is a very important word here - neverthelessNever The Less.  Jesus recognized His will was "The Less", and that the Father's will was "Greater".  Make up your mind and settle in your heart today, Never The Less, Always the Best!

"Father, I submit anew my life to you today, and I say, Not my will, but Thine be done.  Renew my mind with Your Word, and reveal Your will to me by Your Spirit, so that You can fulfill Ephesians 3:20, and do exceeding abundantly above all that I ask or think in my life.  In Jesus Name, Amen."
