Run Over By A Troop And Fell On By A Wall

Ephesians 3:20, Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
We all know that as a child of God, we have power. It was a promise from God that we would receive power after that the Holy Spirit came upon us. If you are like me, you have good days and bad days. Just as we do physically so do we spiritually. Some days I feel as though I could leap over a wall and run through a troop. Other days I feel as though I have been run over by a troop and fell on by a wall. Why is that?

This scripture says “according to the power that worketh in us,” not simply the power in us. Just as we have days when our physical body does not respond properly, so it is spiritually. Even though the power in us never diminishes, the working power does. This is not because God’s power is less, but because it cannot work as it used to. This may be a temporary loss or it could be permanent. It could be due to an injury or due to neglect. It could be due to lack of spiritual exercise or proper eating.

The good news is the first part of the scripture. Even when the power working is diminished, it does not mean that God cannot do great things through us. The first part still says that He is “able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.” So even though you feel less spiritual today, do not allow the enemy to convince you that good things will not happen. God will take a little and make it a lot. God bless you all.
