It’s His Power At Work That Enables Me

In review of Ephesians 3:20-21 it says, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Bottom Line:
It is His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

What this means to me:
It is His power at work within me, that enables me to do far more than I could do on my own or even dare to ask for.

As humans we were designed to crave the majesty that is Him, and there is nothing that can satisfy us like His presence.

In Ephesians 3:14-21, Paul tells us that God's love is total. He tells us how It reaches every corner of our experience, and it reaches out not just to me, but to the whole world. God's love is long--it continues the length of my life. It is high--it rises to the heights of my celebration and elation. His love is deep--it reaches to the depths of discouragement, despair, and even death. God’s power is at work within us.  So when I’m feeling shut out or isolated, I can remember that you can never be lost to God's love. There is no greater power in heaven or on earth than that which comes directly from the throne.

If I find myself in need, I should reach out to Him and observe the great things he will do. We are told that we won’t even be able to contain the blessings that rain down on us for asking.

I have all the fullness of God available to me. But what I’m learning is that I must appropriate that fullness through faith and through prayer as I live daily for him. Paul's prayer for the Ephesians is also for me. I can ask the Holy Spirit to fill every aspect of my life to the fullest. Afterall, He is the God who cannot fail, and He will answer when I call.
