Nothing Is Too Big for God - Daily Hope with Rick Warren - October 12, 2021

Nothing Is Too Big for God
By Rick Warren

“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.” Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)

God is a competent Father. He can handle any problem you give him. Nothing is beyond his ability or his resources. No request is too big or too small. 

A woman once asked me, “Rick, is it really okay for me to talk to God about the small things in my life? Shouldn’t I just talk to him about the big problems?” I looked at her and said, “Can you imagine God considering any problem too big? It’s all small to him. There is nothing too big or too small for God.” 

The Bible says, “Nothing is impossible for God!” (Luke 1:37 CEV) After reading that, I cut the word “impossible” out of my dictionary because it’s not in God’s vocabulary. Nothing is impossible with God.

It’s amazing to me what my kids thought I was capable of fixing when they were young. They expected me to know it all, fix anything, and be able to afford everything. As they grew up, they learned that their father had limited knowledge, limited energy, limited resources, limited skills—limited everything. 

But your heavenly Father really can do anything. Ephesians 3:20 says, “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” (NLT). 

I’m a big dreamer. I’ve had a lot of big dreams in my life, and God has fulfilled many of them. But God says, “I don’t care how much you dream, Rick; I can still top it. I can dream bigger than you can dream.” 

Yesterday’s impossibilities are today’s miracles. God specializes in the impossible! He is a competent Father.
