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,
21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Today’s Inspiration: Ephesians 3:20. God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we can ever ask or think only according to the power that works in us. What is the power He has bestowed in you? It depends on the amount of quality time you invested in Jesus Christ and the measure of intimacy you have with Christ. The more you focus on Jesus, the more of his light shines on you and the more of His light shines on you, the more power you have. That power is more than a laser beam a concentrated light that illuminates brightly. God’s light shines even brighter than this, that is able to crush all deeds of darkness and those darkness that comes upon you. Your power is limited only by the power He placed in you. That power He created in us gives us the measure of His power to produce wealth in Deuteronomy 8:18 and the power and authority to do His will.
Your comprehension of His love also depends on how much of the love you receive from Jesus as you meditate on the testimonies recorded in the Bible. Can you fathom the extent of His love which is patient and kind, long suffering and enduring and never make record of our wrong? He keeps drawing us near to His heart despite our rebellion or procrastination which is also considered as rebellion as you maybe one of those who keep making promises but never seem to execute them.
Do not allow the desires of the flesh to deceive you as these are against the will of God. Do not be ignorant of satanic devices as stated in 2 Corinthians 2:11. Those who are vulnerable to the desires of the flesh and of the mind are those whom the Bible described as sons of disobedience or children of wrath who walk according to the prince of the power of air that caused strife and discord. Ephesians 2:2-4. But thanks be to God because of His great mercy and great love for us, He has saved us and raised us up together in the heavenly places with Christ not by our works but by His grace. V4-9. We are created by Him for good works therefore we should walk in them. V10.
He is the head and we are His body. To achieve results we need to be in union with Christ and to His body with no part broken. A joint cannot function without other joints. Till we achieve this unity with Christ and His body of priesthood, we continue to strive to achieve. Until we are led by the spirit to do all things, we are vulnerable to the flesh.
As you are children of God, you must be led by the Spirit. The message of the cross seems foolishness to those who resist it but to those who believe is the power of God for it is written that He will destroy the wisdom of the wise and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 1 Corinthians 1:18. Man’s intellect can never match the wisdom of God given to those who hunger after Him. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men and the weakness of God is stronger than men. V25. Such is the mystery man cannot fathom. But it is the truth and till you come to the understanding that Christ is the summation of all truth, you cannot be free.
May you be spiritual people that understand and no longer babes in n Christ. If you still react in envy, strife and divisions, you are still babes in Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:1-4. To attain the fruit of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 you must divorce from your old life of behaviour and attitude and put on a new person in Christ. God be praised!
