Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, Him who is able. Ephesians 3:20
I’ve often felt powerless, have you? Powerless to change a situation, a circumstance, a person or a chain of events. So many times I’ve cried out to God for help and it seemingly never came. I could have easily given up, given in or lost all hope, but I chose to remind myself that He is able!
Able to do exceedingly (to an unusual degree; extremely), abundantly (richly, amply, lavishly, generously, profusely, satisfactorily, sufficiently, affluently, inexhaustibly, luxuriantly) above all that we ask, think or even imagine. Your wildest imaginations can’t even come close to what He has in store for you. But it’s not in your ability. No! It’s only according to the power that works in you.
What power? The power of the Holy Ghost that God sent to you. Have you been filled with the Holy Ghost since you believed? (Acts 8:14-19) Study up my friend, that is where the power lies.That’s why praying in your prayer language (tongues) is so very important. It builds you up or empowers you (Jude 1:20). Hey, I’m not making this up! This stuff is not just real, it works!
So if you feel powerless to resist, pray in tongues. If you lack discipline, pray in tongues. If you’re facing an intense battle, pray in tongues. Trust me, it’s the difference between victory and defeat.
