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. Ephesians 3:20-21a
Have you truly thought about the endless abilities inside of you right now? His Spirit in you. Just pause with me and think of the magnitude of that. Limitless. Unending. Un-defeatable. Things thought impossible are now possible to you. What was unattainable is within your reach.
Thats right! Pinch yourself! I’m not trying to make this bigger than it truly is. Just as this verse so aptly says it; His Spirit deeply and gently within us. Why? Why has He placed His Spirit in us? Here’s my personal take on it:
- My personal and constant reminder of the Fathers love
- With Him, I’m never alone
- He’s my personal mentor in everything (I so need Him!)
- Constant access to Gods wisdom (AGAIN!)
- He show’s me Gods secrets
- I’m filled with power
- I can pray perfect prayers in His language
That’s only my personal 7, but there is so much more to God. Everything insurmountable I face-He’s bigger then that! Every accusation-He’s bigger then that! With Him, I can do the impossible. With Him, I can love the unloveable. With Him, I have hope.
Now that you’ve read this, you have a choice to make. You can either believe that the God in you is bigger than the things you face, or that the things you face are bigger then the God in you. Whichever way you choose will impact your life and the lives of everyone around you.
Father, thank You for Your Spirit! You said, “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men to Me.” So I’ve done my best to lift you today. To explain just how awesome and wonderful You are and that You’re not somewhere far away, but deep in us, everyday, to be everything we need. A very present help in time of trouble. I believe! I believe You are able and willing to use me and I give You permission to do impossible things through me today. It’s in Jesus name I pray, Amen.
