Good morning people who go deeper in your fellowship with God
Ephesians 3:16-21 NIV I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with POWER through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have POWER, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His POWER that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
So often our focus for wanting the power of God is to do something for God, or for God to do something for us.
But God’s power is primarily for intimacy, not for performance.
The word power which is from God here, is mentioned three times. Look at the order and flow.
Firstly, power that Christ may dwell in our hearts by faith.
Secondly, power to have a greater revelation of God’s inexhaustible love for us.
And thirdly, power for God to do in and through us immeasurable things for the Father’s glory.
May God’s power lead us deeper into God’s presence.
