God’s Power that works in you


AUDIO VERSION (Right click and ‘save link as’ to download)

Eph 3:20-21

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.


FURTHER STUDY: JOHN 15:1-16(click to read)

I believe we must have heard that all power belongs to God, all authority in heaven and on earth has been given unto Jesus. This means that all the right and authorization to exert any form of power is given unto Jesus. Because you are joined with Christ; a member of His body, you automatically tap into this power that He has. The more effectively joined to Christ you are, the more flow of His power you will have in your life.

I want you to think of a branch that is joined to a tree; that branch enjoys from the substance of the tree, the power and life with which that branch survives is drawn from the tree. If a portion of the part connecting the branch to the tree has been severed, then the branch begins to die out and suffer, it may not die completely if it has a wound, but the branch will be deficient of substance till its connection to the tree is healed. If for some reason a branch gets infected with a disease, it will affect the flow of power in that branch and it needs to get healed to regain its normal stature. We are branches and Jesus is the vine.

Some of the things that sever our link with Christ are iniquity, guilt, and unbelief. One of the major causative factors of spiritual disease is guilt (listen to the audio for more insight).

God wants to do so much for you and through you, so much more than you can ever imagine. God will do this through the power that is in you. You get this power by staying joined to Christ.

Remember Jesus said “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you”. John 15:7 KJV

The key to receiving more from God is having His power in your life, the key to this power is abiding in Christ, and the key to abiding in Christ is trusting in Him and obeying His word
