Believing in God’s Promises.

Believing in God’s Promises.

Scripture: Ephesians 3:20

 KJV: Now unto him that can do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

MSG: God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

Glory to God in the church!

Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus!

Glory down all the generations!

Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!

Reflection.

WOW!!what an awesome promise today…please, read the MSG translation again and again for proper understanding.

If you look closely, there is one key word in this week’s daily digest post. You’ll see that it talks about having “Faith” in God. God wants us to comprehend his promises today and make sure they are carried out in our lives as his followers.

The next line of Ephesians 3:20 describes the extent of God’s power as “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.” Not just “above,” not just “exceedingly above”—when we ask and think in accordance with what He has promised in His Word, God can do “exceedingly abundantly above” all that we ask or think!

Paul’s prayer in this passage, which began in verse 14, is concluded in verses 20 and 21. No matter how audacious our requests may appear, God is able to grant them (1 Corinthians 2:9). Similar language can be found at the end of a significant section of 2 Corinthians, which reads, “God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).

God uses His strength to accomplish feats beyond our wildest dreams. Instead of using our own strength, the Holy Spirit’s power works through us to accomplish His work. As Jesus instructed His apostles, “The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:41; Mark 14:38). In this letter, Paul also makes several references to “power” (Ephesians 1:19, 21; 2:2; 3:7, 16; 6:12). Paul was referred to as a minister in Ephesians 3:7 “by the working of [God’s] power.” Paul’s readers could also use the power of God to minister.

The superabundant blessings that God gives to everyone who simply trusts in the divine Person and atoning work of Lord Jesus Christ are ours – according to the Power that works in us, though, here is my interpretation of the verse. What then is that force at work within us?

 God’s 3 Powers at Work Within Us from Ephesians 3:20-21 by Crawford W. Loritts JR.

1- The first is His conforming us to the image of His Son, meaning He is working in us to make us more like Jesus. God uses the problems we face in this life, combined with the power of His Spirit, to change us and make us into reflections of Christ.

2-The second way that His power works within us is by enabling us to do that which, in our own efforts, is impossible. For example, that power enables us to overcome even the most stubborn habitual sin, and it enables us to speak with authority to others about the Lord Jesus Christ.

3- Third, that power is at work to sustain us. We all go through times of trouble and trial, times when we don’t know what we are going to do next. The power of God works within us during those times to keep us and give us balance.

You may be wondering right now how to obtain this power, which has the ability to do exceedingly abundantly everything. Acts 1:8 states, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Keep this in mind. To make God’s promises come true, all you must do is use the authority you already possess as a believer.

Since you now know how to recognize the power at work within you, I challenge you to use that power wisely in order to receive the exceeding, abundant, and unimaginable blessings that God has promised you. Friends, accepting the one who gives the power is one way to have faith in the strength you possess. I implore you to cling to Jesus right now and experience that power instantly (John 1:12).

 Prayer.

FATHER, WE RECEIVE THESE PROMISES MADE FOR US ON A PLATTER OF GOLD.MAY IT BEGIN TO MANIFEST NOW IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.
