||the Power that works In you
Category: Bible Study Devotionals
Eph 3:20 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,
What Power works in you?
The answer to this question is so important that it can save lives. It is amazing power that is made available to who so ever will. It is exceedingly abundantly above all.
Stop a moment!
What is up with all these adjectives lined up in one sentence? Isnít just one of those good enough? Well apparently not to the writer of those words, it was necessary to answer the question that I have asked at the beginning of this paragraph, what power works in you?
It is Exceedingly = extremely, to a great degree, extraordinary. Did you catch that? It is ďExtreme to a great degree, way past ordinary, which makes it extraordinary.Ē That is just the first adjective used, look at the next:
Abundantly = very plentiful; more than sufficient; ample. So 1+1=2!! Watch what happens when we add them together.
It is extreme to a great degree, way past ordinary, very plentiful and ample so that it is more than sufficient. Sounds pretty good so far, doesnít it?
Check the next Above = higher than, beyond, superior and All = If I cut the pie into 4 pieces then eat every piece and leave you absolutely nothing, than I have had it ALL.
Here it is put ALL together!!!!!!
It is extreme to a degree, way past ordinary, very plentiful and ample so that it is more sufficient, higher than, beyond and superior to absolutely all you could ever ask or think.
This is the answer to the question above. The power that works in you is Godís grace that gives you the ability to have what is expressed above in the combined meaning of all those adjectives.
NOW APPLY THAT TO YOUR LIFE
How do you measure up to that? Is that How real God and His power is in your everyday life? The real question is;
THE ANSWER Is: We have believeD a LIE!!!!!!!!!!!
The Lie we believe is unique to our circumstances and situations, but it is the same in its base intent. It always challenges the power of God!! It makes situations, circumstances, and experiences greater than the Power that God has revealed in His Word.
God is Real and He is Alive!!!!!! Thatís Right >>>He is Alive
AND WORKING IN YOU!
The ordinary Christian should be filled with so much power that people see Jesus working in and through them. Jesus said; Joh 14:12 ∂ "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater [works] than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
Thatís is enough for you to think about for awhile (to be continued)
