Feasting on His Faithfulness

We all struggle, and at times it seems like all we do is struggle. When it appears like life finally hands you breathing room, another situation arises that causes you to question everything. Life is hard. The world is a busy place and often it feels like we will never get ahead. When I was younger, I remember sleepless nights worrying if anything would change for the better. I recall questioning if everything would fall into place. 

As time passed and I continued to trust in the Lord, it became evident that He used everything for His good purpose. As I continued to follow in obedience and keep my focus on God and His promises, I found that I no longer spent my nights worrying about anything. Instead, I slept. I was secure—secure in Him.

Today, I pray that you are feasting on His faithfulness. I pray that you lay all of your worries, struggles, choices, etc., before God, and leave it in His hands. May your trust always be in Him. May His promises always be etched on your heart. May you feast on His faithfulness for His glory.

“Keep trusting in the Lord and do what is right in his eyes. Fix your heart on the promises of God and you will be secure, feasting on his faithfulness.” – Psalm 37:3 [TPT]

Ephesians Study: Immeasurable Greatness

[Ephesians 1:15-23]

The Power of God – Omnipotence (all-powerful)

  • Parted the Red Sea & the Jordan River
  • Reattached the ear of the soldier
  • Raised the dead – Resurrection Power!

God’s power is GREAT – God’s power is UNABLE TO BE MEASURED

  1. 19 “And what is the immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might.” [ESV]
  2. 21-22 “Now He is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else–not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.” [NLT]

All things under the feet of Jesus

He is above

  • All authorities
  • All powers
  • All dominions
  • Every name named in this age & the age to come
  • The Church
  • God raised Jesus – defeated death / broke the power of death (v. 20a)
  • God seated Jesus at His right hand – and we are seated with Him! (v. 20b)
  • God set Jesus over all demonic powers (v. 21)
  • God gave Jesus as head over all things to the Church (v. 22)
  • Where God rules, we believers rule (v. 23)

The Apostle Paul is praying in this passage. He wants us to know three things:

  • The hope to which He has called you
  • The riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints
  • The immeasurable greatness of His power toward us who believe

Paul is saying…

  • You have the calling
  • You are heirs – you have an inheritance
  • You have the power of God

He is praying that you may KNOW – that you would know this power toward us
