What dreams has the Lord placed in your heart to impact His kingdom?
You’ll need power that works to accomplish them, even in your Christian weight loss goals!
Consider this powerful scripture:
”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,”Ephesians 3:20
Pause and think about that; God is able to do above all that we can ask or imagine!
Now you might wonder: Can anything limit God’s ability to work within us?
The book of Psalm records how the children of Israel put limits on God, who is limitless:
How often they provoked Him in the wilderness,Psalm 78:40-42
And grieved Him in the desert!
Yes, again and again they tempted God,
And limited the Holy One of Israel.
They did not remember His power:
The day when He redeemed them from the enemy,”
So although God’s power is limitless, God’s people limited His work in their lives because of their own limiting beliefs and actions!
Here is a natural example. Consider the power of lightning. That is raw electricity in action.
However, man can limit electricity in its application. We see this every day in how electricity powers our homes and businesses.
Electrical wiring and circuits control how electricity is delivered.
Consider the following about how electrical wiring works. As you read this excerpt from Wikipedia, imagine the application to your own Spiritual life’s power:
”Materials for wiring interior electrical systems in buildings vary depending on:
Now, let’s move from this natural example to the Spiritual realm. What are the Spiritual power demands of your life currently?
Are you trying to run your life with low-voltage batteries when the demands require a continuous power supply?
I recommend writing down the answers to the following questions and pray that the Holy Spirit illuminate how your answers can impact your Spiritual power supply:
If you are experiencing a power failure in your life, perhaps you need to check your power supply and/or upgrade your wiring circuits!
I also recommend reading Psalm 78 aloud. Note any phrases that resonate with you as you do so.
I did this exercise myself. Here are the thoughts that came to me as I read:
Act on what you learn with God’s help daily and you will see an increase of Spiritual power in your life!
Here is my prayer for you:
May the Lord do exceedingly, abundantly more than you can ask or think according to the power that works within you. May He reveal the Spiritual power at work in your life and show you any upgrades that are needed for increase. May He enlarge your territory to increase your influence for His kingdom among your family, friends, acquaintances and business associates. May you experience the kingdom of God within you every day – righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, Amen.
Be blessed in health, healing and wholeness,
