My prayer for you is that every moment you will experience the measureless power of God made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you! This is the explosive and mighty resurrection power that was released when God raised Christ from the dead and exalted him to the place of hightest honor and supreme authority in the heavenly realm! And now he is exalted higher than all the thrones and principalities, above every ruler and authority, and above every realm of power there is. He is gloriously enthroned over every name that is ever praised, not only in this age, but in the age that is coming.
The book of Ephesians has been part of my morning studies the past few weeks. Even though I have read this book numerous times, I am learning so many wonderful things again. It never gets boring. The treasures in this book are limitless.
Today, as I went through chapter one again I was in awe at all that has been given to those that love Jesus and have committed to following him. Paul wrote the book of Ephesians, and in the first chapter I capture his excitement about the incredible hot deal we have been given. It's free, friends, all free!
Because of the blood of Jesus, we have been given the opportunity to grasp on to the measureless power of God. We are all equipped with the potential of this power through our faith in him. But, you may be asking, what if my faith is weak? Don't worry, God gives us immense power to break through unbelief, doubt, fear, pain, addictions, everything. Through him, we are able to be transformed into a living testimony for him. Now that is immense power.
It gets even better, because God has infused us with resurrection power as well. This is the most incredible power ever. Resurrection power is exactly the power that raised Christ from the tomb. That's not all though, the resurrection power also raised billions of people. It's true, it raised you and me as well. " He raised us up with Christ the exalted One. And we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now joined as one with Christ!" (verse 6)
You and I were raised up out of the grave, our sin, into heavenly places with Christ Jesus! Because of His grace we believe in Him, and He creates within us a visible display of his infinite, limitless riches of his grace and kindness. Now that is a hot deal!
This power re-creates us and gives us all that we need to fulfill the destiny he has written upon our hearts. We are joined with Jesus, and even before we were born God planned our destiny. It is a destiny that displays His amazing grace and power!
If you are feeling powerless, alone, sad, fearful or doubtful, remember that God has seated you in a special place. He is transforming you everyday into your true self. The self that walks in the grace, power, and authority He sees you in. Even if you don't see it or feel it; God will not leave you to despair. He will bring you revelation of his truth!
