Power…we know it when we see it.  While at Exelon Nuclear, I understood the power of harnessing the atom to provide electricity to thousands of homes and businesses.   Watch the space shuttle lift off or take off in a 737 and you understand power.  Freight trains are powerful as are tornadoes.  Baseball has its power hitters and basketball has power forwards.  Power…

Why then do so many have difficulty when understanding the power of God?  I think one of the problems (and there are probably many), lies in how you answer this question:  “Can I think of anything that is too big for God?”  Now I know that it is not as simple as this but we, far too often, worship a small God instead of the God Paul prays to in the following prayer:  For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Do you know the power of God?  Do you believe in the power of God?  Blessings to you today!!
