Ephesians 1:19-20 – I pray that you will begin to understand the incredible greatness of His power for us who believe Him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.
In 1867, Alfred Nobel patented dynamite. The power of dynamite led to the construction of large buildings, the creation of roads and tunnels, and the mining of precious natural resource.
Though we marvel at such an explosive resource, the power of dynamite pales in comparison to the power of our God. With a word He created the heavens and earth. He put the stars in place and named each one. God has the power to move mountains, part seas, and calm the winds at His command. It is the same power that raised Jesus from the grave and defeated death and Satan. God’s power is available to us every day as we come to God and put our confidence in Him.
We are like gloves. The power of the Holy Spirit is like the hand in the glove. The glove cannot do anything by itself, but when the hand is in it, it can do many things. We must make room for the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Challenge: Trust God’s power to help you through any situation or decision and to guide you in your actions.
