Never Doubt God's Power

Ephesians 1:18 I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.19 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 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.

It seems like so many Christian's theology has changed to "not" believing in the power of God and that is tragic. I have read more articles about when you go through a trial it is God drawing you closer to Him or developing your faith. I do believe God does that and it is mentioned in scripture, right alongside the above verses that speak of God's incredible greatness seen through His power. We do have trials from time to time, but we must never succumb to the apathetic attitude that seems to prevail about God's power and His exercise of that power. Scripture says if we have faith the size of a mustard seed we can say to a mountain "Move" and that mountain will move! Jesus' power was very evident when He walked on this earth and so evident that he drew crowds hoping to have that power fall on them.

The religious vehemently doubted that Jesus was God and their lack of faith caused them to doubt who He was and what He was doing. Their doubt did not change the fact that Jesus was crucified on a cross, buried in a tomb, and rose on the third day defeating everything that was done to stop Him. Even those that walked with Him doubted what had happened and Thomas could not grasp it until he saw the scars from the crucifixion. Thomas wanted proof and Jesus supplied the proof and all was well.

We follow and believe in a Savior we can't see and at times that might cause someone to look at Him and what He did through human reasoning, so we make excuses for Him not working today in power. God doesn't need any excuses because He is still God and on His throne no matter what we think. Paul prayed that the Ephesians would understand the awesome power of God so that they could handle the trials of their lives. That power is accessible to us as well. If not, then why pray for God to move? If we pray and don't believe then we are doing some kind of religious act that comes from our own thinking instead of God's Word. Not gonna work. Either Mark 11 is true or something is amiss. Mark 11:23 But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. 24 I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.

Never Doubt God's Power and you will find yourself much more prepared to handle the big things in life because you can rely on the truth of God's Word. His living Word.
