The Incomprehensible, Unimaginable, Life-Transforming Power That’s Ours For The Asking

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, EPH 3.20

Believers in Jesus Christ have power.

It is the very power of the Creator of the Universe, the power that called the galaxies into being with a word and holds the universe together.

It is the power of God himself to change us, and transform us into the likeness of Christ. The power to conquer any and every sin. The power to forgive, to obey every single command of Scripture, and overcome any affliction. It’s the power to love the unloveable, to persevere to the end, to make spiritual progress, to be different than the world. It is the power of the Holy Spirit, the power of grace. It is the power of the resurrection, the power of the age to come beginning now. It is liberating, life-altering power. It’s the strength to walk in a manner worthy of the gospel and bring glory to God.

It is an infinitely greater power than Satan or any demon has, a power unimaginably greater than that of any angel. And no human being apart from Christ could even fathom it. It is a power greater than anything the world can throw at us. It’s a power the world can’t begin to comprehend. It’s far, far, far more than any self-help book can suggest. This is no mere human power. It’s genuine, spiritual, heavenly power. It’s more than we can ask or think!

It is a power we can tap into any time day or night. We can come to the throne of grace in any time of need. Jesus ever lives to make intercession for us. His ears are attentive to our cries. And he is desirous, ready and waiting to unleash his awesome power in our lives.

So what are you waiting for? Cry out to God for power! For help, joy, strength, hope, for whatever you need today. Our generous king is waiting to lavish his grace upon us.
