"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 3:20-21 KJV)
The Holy Spirit is the creator; He's the doer of God's work. Everything God does is through the power of the Holy Spirit, who today, lives in us and is active in and through us.
From the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came to the earth to carry out His ministry, and He's been here ever since. So, today, God isn't working or "doing" anything for us from Heaven; He does whatever you ask or desire of Him according to His power at work in you. The Bible says He has ceased from all His works (Hebrews 4:10).
What about Jesus? Is He in Heaven working? No; He's seated; resting (Ephesians 1:20). That means when people pray and ask God for things, and believe He's doing something about it, He really isn't. However, we do understand when a miracle happens that it's His power at work.
Think about it this way: when the government of any nation does something, credit or blame is given to the president. But the president had nothing to do with it in essence; the designated offices were responsible for the work, based on the authority given to them by the president. However, we may give credit to the president, because it's his policies and authority that effected it.
Likewise, the power of God is available to you, and through that power, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or think. He can do far beyond your requests, expectations, and imaginations, through His power inside you. Become God-inside conscious. Recognize and use His awesome power at work in you to your advantage. Hallelujah!
"Dear Father, I thank you, for you're the one at work in me, both to will and to do of your good pleasure. I'm sensitive to your leading and guidance, and by your grace through the Spirit, nothing is impossible to me. I can do all things through your mighty power at work in me, in Jesus' Name. Amen."
