There was a pivotal moment in my life, years ago, when I was encouraged to fill in the blank below with whatever struggle I was facing.
When I did, it completely transformed my life and my worship.
God is bigger than (__________________)
“I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms” Ephesians 1:19-20
As much as I said I believed the verses in Ephesians to be true, I was far from living my day-to-day life as if they were true. Finishing the statement above helped me to put my weaknesses into perspective.
When I applied it to my struggle, I began to see the power of God work through me.
Folks, that right there is reason to worship Him with our lives.
When we witness God working through us, when we watch Him accomplish things beyond our ability and despite our tendency to fear, our hearts are filled with an outpouring of gratitude and we can’t help but want to worship the One who made it possible.
Tim Timmons recently shared some thoughts on this power that lives inside us through the song “Christ In Me.”
Take a look.
What if we lived our lives actually believing the same power that rose Jesus from the dead actually lives inside of us?
What if this truth we read about in Scripture became more than head knowledge?
What if it became heart knowledge that transformed the way we lived out each moment in our day?
How differently would you approach the trials in your life?
How would it impact your daily decisions?
What giants would you be willing to face with confidence, knowing that you had the power of the Almighty God fighting on your behalf?
How would choosing to believe this today change your approach to whatever circumstance you are going through?
