His Power In Us

We have the ability to walk in the fullness of FATHER just as Jesus walked in His ministry.  Our minds would try to bring up our past in order to convince us we are not worthy of this fullness yet HIS Word reveals to us that he uses men and women like us to do HIS bidding.  Until Paul was converted he was an enemy of Christians yet FATHER used him mightily after had gave his life to Christ.  By THE SPIRIT Paul wrote in Ephesians chapter 3:

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,

These writing are intended to strengthen your inner man so that you will be able to overcome the obstacles set before you.  Each of us has a unique set of obstacles and circumstances yet HIS power in us is able to overcome all.  We must exercise our inner man every day in order that we are able to withstand the wiles of the devil.  Let us not become weak simply by lack of exercise in HIS Word.  We need a healthy diet of feeding on The Word rather than overindulging in entertainment which is fleeting at best.  THE SPIRIT continues:

17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—

19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

If we are not living a “Christ-centered” life, we should be.  When we redirect our focus away from the words and acts of Christ then we begin to lose our passion and become lukewarm.  Little by little the world seeps into our focus and then we wake up one day weak and lethargic.  The best way to avoid this is by daily exercise and diet.  Some will take these words to heart and change while others will simply go through the motions are remain weak in their walk.  Let us keep our eye on the goal of being filled with all the fullness of FATHER.

20 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,

21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

It is critical to understand that HIS ability to work on our behalf is determined by the power that works in us.  In Matthew 13:58 “Now Jesus did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.”  Our daily exercise of planting HIS Word in us removes unbelief.  That is the reality of the way HE designed us.  We become like the company we keep.  Jesus did not fellowship with the Pharisees or Sadducees though He did interact with them during ministry.  They were enemies who intended him harm.  He Loved them but did not maintain an ongoing relationship with them.  There are those people who will drag us down in our goal of being filled with the fullness of FATHER.  It is necessary to distance ourselves from them or we will take on their ways.

Each of us has a destiny to walk in the fullness of FATHER.  We must feed ourselves with our destiny in mind.  If we feed the negative, we will become negative but if we feed the positive we will become positive.  If we focus on walking in Love, we will become Love.  It’s that simple.  We must plant seeds of Love in ourselves so that we become rooted and grounded in Love.  As HIS Word enters our hearts, our faith grows and overtakes doubt and unbelief.  Our Love grows to the point where it becomes first nature to forgive all those who have wronged us in the past.  Their hurtful words and acts just don’t matter anymore and will no longer consume our thoughts and focus.

As we are rooted and grounded in Love, our quest for knowledge as being the solution to everything subsides.  We are content in whatever state we are in.  Some people work their brain to the extreme as they search and dissect Scripture t the point where they become worn out.  We need to stop and let FATHER show us what is important for us to know and understand.  Knowledge by itself isn’t power, having the fullness of FATHER in us is the true power.  This is how we are able to comprehend what is important and relevant to our destiny.  Everything else simply falls by the wayside and withers away.  As we walk IN HIM, we reflect HIS Glory to all generations.  Amen!
