1 John 4:4 says, Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. God desires To Work In Our Lives.
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
(Luke 10:19 NKJV).
“Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power He can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Glory Belongs to God in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time and eternity! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)
God has a plan for each of us! And thst plan is much better than anything we could concoct for ourselves. How many times have we tried to do things on our own without God’s guidance or the direction of the Holy Spirit? Since we don’t always learn from our mistakes, maybe we’re trying to do that right now.
The power that works in us, which Paul talks about with the Ephesian church, does not come from our own understanding or abilities. That power only comes from the Holy Spirit and He doesn’t need our help to move forward.
“…for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure”.
(Philippians 2:13 NKJV)
As God works in our lives, He increases our faith and gives us the mind of Christ. This is needed in the life of a believer because our human minds are incapable of thinking godly thoughts.
Whatever “we ask or think” pales in comparison to God’s great plans for our lives. So, it isn’t unbelievable to us that God can do so much more than we ever could.
We can therefore let go of the plans we have and embrace the one that God wants to work in our lives. And God will do it “exceedingly” and “abundantly,” which is far beyond what we could ever imagine. Then, for all of eternity, we can offer up the glory that God deserves to receive.
Let us pray:
God, You have done great things far beyond anything I could ever imagine. Help me to draw even closer to You. So I can worship You more freely, knowing that You are working inside my heart and mind to make me more like You. For generations, You have been faithful. And in everything that happens in the future, I want to choose to worship You and give You the glory that You wholeheartedly deserve. In Jesus’s precious name, I pray, amen.
