The Power At Work Within Us

As Christians, many times we quote the promise in Eph 3:20, ...incompletely.
Read the complete verse;

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]--

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.

God is able (more than able...)
to accomplish, carry out, and do
infinitely, immeasurably, superabundantly
more than, over, and beyond
all we dare ask, think, or imagine
through His power working in us! (not our power, not working external to us, internal)
