Above that which you can ask or think!

Do you have a desire?  Zacchaeus had a desire to see Jesus. He must have heard about Him and the mighty works He did.

Luke 19 verses 1 to 4  

And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
 And he sought to see Jesuswho he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

From the above  Zacchaeus’s only desire was to see Jesus.  However the Lord did above that which Zaccheaus could  think. 

Luke 19 verse 5 to 9 

 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.
 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.  And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

Jesus went to his house and his whole house got saved. This sprang from a desire just to see Jesus.

Do you have a desire? Have you asked the Lord about this. Zacchaeus only thought about seeing Jesus and the Lord did above his thinking, how much more will he do when you ask.

He is well able to do above that which you can ask or think. 

Eph 3 verse 20:

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.

The Lord is faithful and longs to do more than our desires.

Just ask!
