In this post I am going to tell you how and why God is able to do exceedingly above anything you can expect from other people. God is able to do for you what people won’t do for you. Let me ask you a few questions that I know you will be able to relate to. Have you ever wondered:
- Why someone won’t help you out?
- Give you a job?
- Give you an opportunity when it is in their power to do so?
They may even call themselves a friend and say they want to support you but when push comes to shove they are anything but supportive. Do you feel like people mock you or even laugh at you when you express a hope or even a dream? Or are you chasing opportunity, and feel like doors keep closing in your face time and time again and there is nothing you can do about it? And this is where God is able to do exceedingly above what you can ask or what other people can even do.
Although having people in your corner is nice, if they don’t want to be there then let them go. Because you have God and God is Able To Do Exceedingly Abundantly Above All We Could Ask or Think. God is able to do what other people won’t do. There is no reason to worry why other people won’t help you out or give you a chance because you do not need them to do for you, you have God and God is enough. Also check out my video on what to do when people don’t believe you in you for more on how God is able to do exceedingly above and beyond what you can ask for.

1. God is able to do exceedingly above what you ask because He is not a liar
God is able to do exceedingly above of what you ask because he said he would. I know that God being able to do for you may sound a little foreign of frustrating to some of you. If you want something and you have been facing dead end after dead end then your first thought may be what is God going to do different. Even though we know God can do anything I can almost bet there is a lot of Christians out there that low key doubt God especially when they don’t see things moving the way they would like. I have had my moments when I have been mad at God. But more than anything take the following Bible verse.
“God is able to do Exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” Ephesians 3:20
God is not a man that he should lie (Numbers 23:19). Meaning that God is not just going to say something because it sounds nice. He is not just going to tell us in the Bible time and time again about how He will show up for us when He really means that he will disappointment us. So take it as this. Instead of turning to people to give you what you feel deserve then turn to God.
You cannot just do things your own way, wonder why they don’t work out, not bring God into it and then expect him to do something for you. It does not work like that. If you are willing to work with God then He is willing to work with you. So get this whole “people won’t do for me” out of your head. You don’t need them.
God has showed up for so many people in the Bible before (such as David) were people were literally laughing at him. But once again God is able to do exceedingly abundantly all we could ask or think. It did not matter that David’s family was laughing at him and mocking him but he is the one who slayed Goliath and he is the one who goes down in history while all of his mockers don’t.
2. God is able to do exceedingly above what you ask ~ Case in Point Jesus
Whenever I have doubts or feel like I am not getting anywhere then I always revert back to this verse.
And so Jesus said “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the rocks will cry out.” Luke 19:40
I know what you may be thinking, the rocks cry out, huh? What does that mean? Rocks don’t cry, the are not alive, and they don’t have voices….and see that is exactly my point. Let me give you a back story on this verse so you can understand the full context. When Jesus came into Jerusalem and people began to cheer for Him as He came through the city. In which some of Jesus’s haters (the ones that ultimately were responsible for having him crucified) said this:
“Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” Luke 19:39
Here we have some people hating on Jesus and they were pretty much trying to dim his light in which Jesus gave the response (and this is paraphrasing). Even if the people stopped cheering then God would use the rocks (an inanimate object that is not alive), to cry out in recognition of His glory.
Because that is how powerful God was and that is how much He was deserving on recognition, nothing was going to stop that. It was not about the people cheering because they could or could not have been there. Either way someone or something was going to cry out because that is what Jesus deserved.
Jesus understood that even if the people would not recognize who He was that God is able to do what people won’t do and use something as insignificant as a rock to get the same task established that the people refuse to do. And that although the people were there he did not need them to do anything and even though He had haters they couldn’t do anything either because either way someone was going to cheer for Jesus, and if there were not rocks then it would have been trees, if there is no trees it would have been sand, if there was no sand, then it would have been the clouds. NOTHING would have prevented a moment that supposed to happen from happening.

3. God is able to do exceedingly above what you ask AND God is able to do what people won’t do
My main point is that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly. God is able to make things happen that are suppose to happen and even greater than what we thought they would happen. How many times have you put yourself out there for an opportunity only to be disappointed? How many times has someone said they were going to help you, only for them to not follow through on their word?
I remember when I first had big dreams for myself I used to put myself out there, expect for people to help me along the way, and I used to expect for people to see my greatness and want to give me an opportunity when I asked but when that did not happen I was left feeling disappointed. But I was able to put my trust in God and I got to my destination regardless. God was able to get me there not people.
So, why get mad if people don’t want to help you out? Do you not understand what God is able to do? He can use anything in your path to get His purpose for you accomplished if that whats needs to happen. I remember it was in that moment that I decided to have a one on one praying session with God to vent out my frustrations I do that a lot by the way (check out my blog to read more).
I was upset that for some people things seems to work out for them. They seem to bump into the right person at the right time and then their life changed. And here I was begging for people to get me an opportunity. Begging for people to see the value in me and to give me a chance. And yet nothing was working out. And it was like God spoke to me and told me that as long as I had Him that I did not have to rely on people for my purpose. God is able to do whatever He wants to do, however He wants to do it. And that people could not hinder or stop it if it was God’s will.
4. God is able to do exceedingly above what you ask ~ Which is why you should trust in God and not people.
So if you are on God’s path and He has ordained you to do something and you cannot get any help, then know that if they keep quiet the rocks will cry out. I understand that it would be great IF “they” found the value in you and you may feel that your path would be easier if people would just lend a helping hand. But if they don’t let the rocks cry out. You are going to get to your destiny regardless. God is able to do point blank period. With or without people.
He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Notice that the verse did not say according to the power in other people or the power in what the world is willing to give you. As long as you have God on your side, you are working with God, and are believing in Him to come through for you then he will. As it states in the Bible verse you too are part of the puzzle.
So never get discouraged by what other people are not doing for you. God is able to do for you. Do not despise humble beginnings and even if it would be faster if someone helped you still let God do it. He will do it in his time, just be patient. I have said it once and I will say it again just because the glass does not appear full does not mean it will remain empty. That is where you need to have faith. Because literally definition of faith is:
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
Meaning that it does not matter what it looks like, it does not matter what people say about you, and it does not matter what people are willing to give or not give you. You don’t put your faith in man you put your faith in God knowing HE has the authority to give to you not them. And no one has authority over you and whatever authority they do have was given to them by God (John 19:11)
And that is why I know if someone does not want to help you out it is their lost. Let God use the rocks cry out in recognition of your glory. He can use a situation, He can use a circumstance, He can use anything around you to make what He wants to happen, happen. Your only job is to put yourself in the position to be blessed.
And remember, if no one is supporting you or sees your vision, sometimes God isolates you on purpose and the only person working toward your goal is you and Him. He does not allow anyone else to help you because He does not want anyone else to take credit for the places He is about to take you. He wants everyone to discredit you, that way when you get to where you need to be the only person who can take credit for where you are is God.
“Do not allow the fact that other people won’t be there for you or help you out be your end all and be all. You do not need them. You are going to get to your destination regardless.”
