Ephesians 1:19 (English Standard Version) 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe,according to the working of his great might
I pray that you will begin to understand how incredibly great His power is to help those who believe Him. Paul calls it His “incredibly great power.” GOD’S power is so great we can’t grasp it! Every now and then something so fantastic happens that man cannot do and we grasp a glimpse of His incredible power. There is NOTHING to hard for God. His power extends outward forever like this universe He brought into being just by speaking. The Bible says He spoke and the World began. Man has been grappling with the concept of an ever-expanding universe for years. It boggles our mind to think about it.
We live in an incredibly great universe; the creation of our incredibly great GOD by use of His incredibly great power. But, the wonder of it all is that God says His power is exercised on OUR behalf. The verse says, “to help those (us) who believe Him.” We must let nothing rob uf of this TRUTH … NOT PAIN, NOR WEAKNESS, NOR FEAR, NOR LIFE’S STORMS! GOD is GOD.
- His power never changes or gets less because He uses it.
- Man cannot do anything that limits His power.
- We can trust Him. He uses His incredible power on our behalf, in what ever way He chooses.
- We can face tomorrow with this assurance.
So why do we fret and worry?
- The word worry comes from a word that means to divide.
- When we worry we divide our energy
- When we worry about a situation the problem gets us instead of us getting it (Psalms 145:15-16)
While FAITH makes all things possible, His LOVE makes all things easy.
The value of persistent prayer is not that God will hear us, but that we will HEAR HIM!
CHOICE not CHANCE determines how we live!
There’s not a verse in the Bible that says compare yourself to others.
May we be content with what God has given us as the WORD of GOD explodes in our hearts and keeps us rejoicing.
