God's Power Within Us #6 - The Surpassing Greatness of His Power

Today we continue learning about God's Power within us.  God's Word is full of passages talking about His power and showing us that we have nonstop access to His strength every second of every day.

Today we will be focusing on Ephesians 1:17-23

Remember, Jesus said that we (Spirit filled Christians) are able to perform all of the miraculous works that Jesus did when He was here in human form.  Actually, Jesus said that we would do EVEN GREATER than what He did (see Scripture passage below).


John 14:12-14 also shows us how powerful the name of Jesus Christ is:  "If you ask anything in My name".  (It is important to note that these miracles must glorify our Heavenly Father).

Since there are so many wonderful "Power" passages in God's Word, I decided to write a "Power" post on the last Sunday of every month.

Below is the featured "power" passage for February:

Ephesians 1:17-23

In the Bible passage below we learn about wisdom and discernment from God.  Let's begin by defining "discernment":  
Discernment - the quality of being able to grasp & comprehend what is obscure.
Knowledge from God is truth and it is powerful.  God's discernment gives us guidance and keeps us safe.
Having our heart "flooded with light" prevents us from being tricked and deceived by the evil ones. (see verses below).


Then, in verse 19 (see below) it is clearly states that God's power is IN US and it is also FOR US.  How absolutely amazing!

God's power:
- can NOT be measured
- goes above & beyond our wildest imagination

And it's this amazing power that is inside of all believers!!


In the next two verses (see below) we learn that Jesus Christ's Name is above all names and that's not just for today!  His Name is above all in the future and forever.

"Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come."
Ephesians 1:20-21

Jesus Christ is the "universal and supreme Head of the church". (see verse below)
Universal - including or covering ALL
Supreme - highest in rank or authority

"And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church]"
Ephesians 1:22


The surpassing greatness of God's power fills EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE!
