There is more to this Christian life than meets the eye. There is a wisdom, a knowledge, and understanding, a hope, and riches that we often never grasp. We get into a situation that we just can’t handle. So what do we do? We try to handle it on our own. We tend to be really good at depending on our own ability.
When that happens we are really missing something. If we are not careful we can go through our entire life without ever “getting it.”
Just how powerful is God’s power to get us through? How great is God? How strong is He? How much of His strength is there for us?
The answer is almost more than I can grasp – “the power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead.” I cannot imagine a power greater than the power to raise Jesus from the dead.
The problem is that we far too often limit the power of God to work in us because we have our own solution, or our own agenda. The greatest even in human history was the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. The greatest power made it possible. And we have that power working is us!
