Read: Ephesians 3:14-21 . The word for ‘power’ in verse 21 is dunamis which means God’s ‘potential power’, or his ‘power on reserve’. But this power is not just theoretically available to us; it is actively operating according to his ‘working’ within us.
This word is energeo literally means, ‘the energetic exercising’ of God’s power. And it this power that God says, is working in you! Right now, all God’s power is held on reserve for you and is being released in you as you draw on it for the practical purpose of living and achieving for him. God wants you to boldly go and do exploits for him, and he will back you up to the hilt.
God’s power, his infinite, ‘super-abundant-above-power’, is yours – not just as a theatrical possibility, but as a practical reality. That is why you can dream big dreams and let your heart loose on the divine possibilities that are available to you in Christ. Don’t sell yourself short!
Lord, please help me. I need a revelation of your power operating in me. I want to do great things for you but I need to experience your power more fully. Release me into your potential for my life.
Discipleship dreams – that’s what will release God’s faith and his power in your life. Dream of what you could become as your rise up to take hold of your potential in Christ. We are God’s power outlets into the life of this world. Keep connected and draw down that power as you discover that nothing is impossible for you. Be inspired by God’s possibilities, and remember, the effective operation of God’s power in you is not lacking. You can fulfil your discipleship dreams.
