“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Ephesians 3:20
Most often when someone reads this scripture, the focus is always on, “God is able to do above and beyond all we ask or think”, but what follows next is the most important! Is it all according to the power that works in other people? No, it’s according to the power that works in US!
During this season, everyone is facing their own battle. Whether it is financial, physical sickness, emotional healing, problems in marriage, or work, the lists goes on! But this scripture is saying that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we ask or think, ACCORDING to the POWER that works in us! Meaning, we need to have another fresh revelation on who it is exactly that lives on the inside of us.
So, what power lives inside of you? Romans 8:11 says, “The Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you.” The same resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in YOU!
Here is how Matthew Wuest describes this verse: “The power (Dunamis) that is putting forth energy in us, is the operation of the Holy Spirit in His work of sanctification. God is able to do for us and answer our prayers according to the efficiency, richness, and power of the working of the Spirit in our lives. This latter is determined by the yieldedness of the believer to the Holy Spirit. Thus, the saint determines what God is able to do for him. In His inherent ability, there is no limit to what God can do in and through the saint. But the saint limits the working of God in and through him by the degree of his yieldedness to the Spirit.”
So what miracle are you believing for in your life? We’ve been challenged to expect a miracle every day!! What if your miracle comes once you discover the resurrection power inside you? The passion translation says, “Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you to accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.”
It’s for us to get an eternal perspective and fresh revelation on who we carry on the inside of us. The same God living on the inside of Oral Roberts, Charles Spurgeon, Paul, Peter, and all our heroes of faith is the SAME GOD living inside of you. It’s time for us to increase our faith, tap into the Dunamis power living on the inside of us, and take action!
Jesus will do exceedingly abundantly above all you ask or think according to the power in YOU! There’s more inside of you than you realize, accept your miracle!!!
