I was listening to a pastor this weekend who was preaching on the power of God and how we have the same power in us as believers. Keyword there....BELIEVER! Yes we have to believe what His word says so that we can get a revelation of that power He has instilled in us through Christ Jesus His Son.
This prayer was one of the many scriptures the pastor hit on. And I thought MAN! If we would just pray this everyday and mean it and believe it, we could really turn our thinking around and our lives. AMEN.
Ephes. 1 v 16-21......that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may KNOW what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward US who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.......
First of all I am going to be praying this prayer everyday for the next 30 days like the pastor suggested and I am also going to pray this prayer for all tid-bit readers. Email me and let me know when you get a revelation of what this scripture is telling you. When you realize we have that same power.
He is telling us in this prayer that God wants us to know that He has given us the same MIGHTY POWER that He gave to Jesus, and He wants us to KNOW and understand the EXCEEDING GREATNESS of His POWER in US. He wants us to OPEN our eyes and see what His POWER that is within us can do for us and for others. We have inherited the riches of His Glory when we became believers in Christ Jesus. AMEN!
Col. 1 v 9-14.....For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the LORD, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of His Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.......
Oh my gosh! Do you see it right there in front of your eyes? He qualified US to be partakers of all He has given to Jesus, we can have also. This scripture says that we may walk worthy of the LORD, Pleasing Him by being fruitful in all that He has given us.
HE WANTS US TO USE HIS POWER!! AMEN!!!
Are you excited yet? Have you got the message in this prayer yet? When are we going to start using that POWER to heal the sick, to rise above our circumstances, to live our lives more abundantly?
Let's begin today with this prayer enlightening us to how we can do it. AMEN!
Stay in the WORD!
