Devotions for September 1, 2017


19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.


Paul prays this powerful prayer for the Ephesians.


Q: What has God’s mighty power already done?
Q: This power is available to us through the Holy Spirit and fills everything everywhere with Christ. What is our purpose in receiving this power?
Q: Have you experienced the incredibly great power of the Holy Spirit as Paul describes? If not, begin today to ask Jesus to fill you with His Holy Spirit so His power can work in your weakness, your uncertainty, your failures, and your fears!
