God Gold of the day
‘For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. ‘
Came across these verses the other day when I was in serious need of some encouragement to lift me up. I’ve read these before but this time I kept noticing how Paul mentions ” he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being”; according to the power at work within us.” I kept seeing Paul mention the Holy Spirit, the Spirit that is alive and living in our “inner being.” The Holy Spirit of God that He has given us access to Him on Heavenly levels and power to do far more abundantly than all that we ask through the Spirit that is living inside of us. As weak, and bad as our human flesh can be at times I guess I have completely overlooked the power that God has set inside of me through His Holy Spirit. I constantly want to feel like I’m not enough, I don’t have what it takes, or I’ll never get through this but God has granted us a gift that overcomes all of our failure and inadequacy. He has given us the Holy Spirit living within us to comfort us, to give us the power to live and do things for His kingdom that we could’ve never done on our own. It just gave me so much peace and confidence hearing the truth of this Word, the truth of the power we have residing within us that we daily overlook. You may feel drained, your yesterday’s may tell you that you’re not enough but none of that matters. You serve a God who conquers all of your failures and all of the darkness in the world. You serve a God greater than all, such a mighty, powerful and perfect God! Don’t leave the power within you untapped! Embrace the power God has set before you and LIVE fearlessly and faithfully!!!!
