Good day guys, i’m sure you all are doing great especially as we’re more than halfway though the week.This morning, i came across a word in Ephesians 3:20 & i was moved by my spirit to share a bit of my perspective through the holy spirit of this word.
”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.” Eph 3:20
We know this scripture off heart and many of us make reference to it especially in time of need, we quote it with the aim of putting God in remembrance of his word which is great, but i realized that many of us while quoting do not quote the last phrase of that scripture ……..according to his power that is at work within us.” lets reason this together.
There is power in you through jesus. (how amazing is it to know that) but don’t get carried away by that… because the power has to be put to work in us to count. just like every generator has the ability to give electricity to a building, every generator is made to give power but for that mechanical energy to be converted to electrical energy it needs to be at work; it needs to be wired correctly, diesel needs to be added, and someone needs to put it on before light is produced.
we are generators; we were born with power, we were born to give light to our world, we have so much power in us but it hasn’t been put to use. some of us haven’t even been wired talk more of giving off light.
To cut the long story short, How can we begin to use the power within us? Firstly, you must understand that there is a power in you, you can’t put to work something you didn’t know you had in the first place.secondly,”The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” psalm 119:130. It is the word of God that causes that power to work, the word of God is the diesel that causes us to give off light, if you do not have enough of his word within you there’ll be no light to give off.
Finally, let us get ourselves disciplined into studying the word of God,& consciously living our lives by the standard of the word, only then can we activate his power within us and then he’ll be able to do exceedingly, abundantly all that we can ever ask or imagine because his power is at work within us. Father, i ask that you give me grace to study your word & grace to act by your word consistently so that i can use the power you have given me and i can give off light to my generation & my world at large, Thank you jesus. Amen.
