I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe(Ephesians 1:19).
You really can’t imagine how much power God has.
You wanna try? Fine.
Yeah, well, he’s got more than that.
Which is a really good thing, because you’re weak.
It’s OK, Beloved. I’m weak, too. As a matter of fact, when it comes to spiritual matters I’m kind of pathetic. I try to be strong, and on occasion I pull off a good imitation of strength, but in my heart I know the truth. I just don’t have the power to be the man I know God has called me to be.
Sound familiar? No? You’ve got life perfectly well handled on your own?
Oh, well…then I just feel silly.
Fortunately for me, God does not require me to supply the go-juice for my spiritual walk, any more than I had to redeem myself or find God on my own. His is the power to get me where he wants me to go.
He has made us many promises, Beloved.
And he has the power to back them up.
