“Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think..”
God is powerful. By His very words He created the earth and has sustained ever since the beginning of time. God heals, He saves and sets the captives free from the chains of the enemy. There is no problem to great and no need to complex that He in His power cannot make right. He keeps the planets in the universe in orbit; the sun that gives light and warmth to our day and the moon that lights the night sky. God is mighty.
Yet….! He has chosen our hearts to make His home. Moreover, it is God’s power through us that displays His wondrous works. Paul tells us that God can accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think through His mighty power at work in us. Let us not get confused. This is God’s power in us not our power at work. God, in His grace, allows us to be channels and vessels for His power on this earth. His power through us, displays His magnificence and all is for His glory.
This is a great responsibility and privilege; that we may be used by our mighty God for His glory. As He lives in us and moulds us into Christ-like beings, our will becomes aligned to His, and our prayers become more strategic for the extension of His kingdom and the display of His power. It is then that God, through our Holy Spirit breathed prayers, accomplishes more than we could even think or ask… not just a little bit more but infinitely more.
