The Same Power
In Ephesians 1:19-21, Paul prayed that we would get a revelation of… What is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to [the degree of] the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.
He was praying that God would show us the exceeding greatness of His power that is already on the inside of us. It’s the same power that He used when He raised Jesus from the dead. Again, Ephesians 1:3 reveals that God “hath” already blessed us with these things.
Paul wasn’t praying that the Lord will give us this power, that He’ll release more power, or that we’ll get a double portion of the Holy Spirit. He was praying that we would receive a revelation of what God has already put on the inside of us.
The power that is on the inside of every born-again believer is the exact same power God used when He raised Jesus from the dead. Satan mustered every ounce of strength he had to oppose the resurrection. He put all of his power, every one of his demonic forces, right in front of that tomb trying to block Jesus from coming out. Yet the power that raised Christ from the dead was much greater than all the force of the enemy. And now, as a born-again believer, you have that same power on the inside of you. That’s awesome!
