I have been quite the last week, with all the holidays and easter weekend. I apologize if you were looking for something to read.
This morning I read Ephesians 1. It has so much in that one chapter and I really suggest reading it a couple times, in different translations also if you can, but this one thing stood out for me.
in Verses 17 – 18 Paul is praying, that Ephesians (and I believe all of us) will have wisdom, revelation and knowledge. Why? The reason is in Verse 19:
19And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,
God wants us to know His power, and the significant thing for me is in these 6 words “in and for us who believe”
How cool is that! We as humans often want to show our dominance and power so people respect us for who we are and what we can do or do to them (like hurt them with an Ultimate punch or Judo Chop or with awesome nun chuck skills!). God could do that, make us all scared with lightning and thunder or blowing up Mount Everest or something (because he can), but He wants us to realise His power, by having His power work in and for us! He does not want to just show us He is stronger or better, but want to show his strength and power by doing something amazing in your life!
To me that thought is just amazing and it blows my mind!
Have an awesome day!
