27 May The Power of God in Us
19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. — Ephesians 1:19-20 NLT
May this be our prayer today:
May we believe deeply in our souls that the miraculous power of God resides in us, rescuing and restoring our soul.
That we would believe
by Jesus’ work on the cross – taking our weak and sinFULL flesh – we receive His power by faith or trust in His work. We are asking God to help us live in the reality that we HAVE received the power of God.
That the miraculous power of God
and this is not just any power, it is the “incredibly great” and miraculous power of God’s Holy Spirit that raised Christ from the dead and seated him at the right hand of God.
Resides in us rescuing and restoring our soul.
We are asking God to help us live in the reality that the miraculous power of God – in the very person of God’s Holy Spirit – resides in us. And today – right now – the Spirit of God is doing miraculous work in our souls. He is rescuing us to God for fellowship, for the love and joy we were created for. And He is restoring our souls to look and act as they were meant to, before sin wrecked and broke them.
The Spirit of God is at work in you today! For His glory and your good. You are a miracle as you read and breathe this! And – you are a miracle still in the working and loving hands of God. You cannot be more loved, cherished, or pleasing to holy God. But He is not finished.
May we believe today – live in the deep reality – that the Spirit of God is at work in us. May this cause our affections for you, our God, to grow. And, may this move us to live knowing we are a small part of something bigger God is doing in this world for his glory and our good. Amen.
