August 29, 2017 – Ephesians 3:16-17

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. Ephesians 3:16-17.

As a child, I saw my Dad as all powerful.  He could do anything.  I watched his athletic ability, chinning himself 15 times in a row.  He knew how to do everything, fix anything, and build many things!  Yet, his abilities became less as he became older and his heart was weak.

The one thing my Dad taught me I have never forgotten is the Power of Jesus.  The power and strength does not come from His physical ability, His strength is a spiritual strength given to Him by his Father God.

The Power of Jesus our Lord reaches beyond the furtherest star and  holds our earth in its orbit!  Jesus has glorious unlimited resources beyond our understanding.  Science tries to explain life to us – yet God’s Word gives us this word – Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!   Romans 11:33.

God and Jesus and all they do may be a mystery to us, yet there is one thing they give us.  It is the power to understand when we are the children of God how big, how vast, how all compassing God’s love is for each of us.  We are left breathless when we understand how great God’s love is for each of us.  We simply respond, ‘Hallelujah‘!

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. Ephesians 3:18.
