This morning I was reading in the book of Ephesians as I glean thoughts about our inheritance. I remembered a quote from Beth Moore’s book, “Praying God’s Word” on page 4 she said, “Nothing is bigger or more powerful than God! Nothing.”
As I read in Ephesians this morning I was encouraged to be reminded that the power of God that He uses in our situations is resurrection power! The power God applies in your life today, to help you get out of bed, to go to work, to pay bills, to deal with the kids, to prepare meals, drive the kids all over, orchestrate, coordinate and manage your family and home, is the same power that He used to raise Jesus Christ from the dead. Resurrection power. Don’t wonder how He will do it, just take Him at His word that He will do it.
“..his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead…” Eph. 1:10
This is a faith-building experience. It’s a little like weight lifting: straining against the weight, painful at the time but well worth the effort with stronger muscles. Faith grows through vulnerable situations where we cannot see where we are going and we choose to trust God in the midst of it. The more we do it, the stronger our faith grows.
Resurrection power. You don’t need more than that to get through your day.
