“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. Ephesians 3:20“. God’s power is in us. Did you get that? The power that created the universe is in us! So why aren’t we powerful?
One reason is that the Holy Spirit is a gentleman and will not push His way in to help us. Jesus said the Holy Spirit is our helper. “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever…He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17“. He is available to help and direct us but we have to ask Him. The Spirit of God hovered over the deep in Genesis 1:2 but He won’t smack the remote out of your hand. He will wait right there next to the couch for you to ask.
We have this great power available to us, in us, but we have to focus on the One who sent this power, ask for His assistance, and develop it. Watching TV, surfing the net, reading the paper, etc. won’t get it. Be blessed!
