God’s Power At Work

MP900438647[1]“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Ephesians 3:20 (KJV)

 

Often times we read this verse and quote the first half; however, the answer is in the next part of the verse. We will not receive exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think unless we apply the second part of this verse which is: ACCORDING to the power that works in us. Where does this power come from, and how does it work in us? It is God’s power that works in us. When we are full of the Word of God, we will become empowered and will see God do extraordinary things. That power works by faith. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. When we are empowered by God, He can use us in very effective ways. God has empowered and entrusted me with much ministry, but I can only do it through His strength. I lead a Bible Study,  write devotionals, lead a prayer group, sing at church, will start teaching Sunday School, pray and counsel with people, mentor others and will soon start a Women’s ministry at my church. I could never do all these things if God was not empowering me. I would burn out. Because God is empowering me, He sustains me (He carries me). Are we receiving God’s power, or are we hanging by a thread on our own strength?  Let’s allow God’s power to work in us as we receive the Word of God.

 

“Lord , Help us to receive the Word of God by faith so it can work in us. Thank You for the tasks and ministry that You entrust to us as we see Your great power at work and You are glorified.”

 

For His Glory
