Lord, I extol You for Your great power toward us who believe – Your tremendous, invincible power that works in us and for us…the same almighty strength You used when You raised Jesus from the dead and seated Him far above all other powers, visible and invisible. You are able to do infinitely beyond all our highest prayers or thoughts. Nothing is impossible with You!
Thank You that when I praise You and bring my requests to You in simple faith, I plug into Your almighty power…that when I offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving, I open a door for You to rescue me and bless my life, and I prepare the way for You to rescue and bless other people, near and far.
“So great is your power that Your enemies cringe before You.” I lift my praise to You, for “no human imagination can take in the startling, revolutionary power, softly, subtly, but with irresistible sweep, that flows down from the crowned Christ among grateful men and women…that flows through the lives of individuals wholly under the gracious influence of the Holy Spirit…through people who simply live in full-faced touch with Christ, and who take that power as the need arises and the sovereign Holy Spirit leads” (adapted from S.D. Gordon). Thank You that I am part of a vast army of people around the world – people who live in full faced touch with Your Son and move Your mighty hand to bring about Your gracious purposes. Thank You that our influence and our victories are not by human might or power, but by Your Spirit.
