“ Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Ephesians 3:20
We are often guilty of searching for peace, joy and whatever else we may be lacking, externally. We have been so trained to seek it from others that we continue this trend all through our lives. Today, stop and consider this truth – all that we need is already on the inside of us.
God did not send us to earth to be at the mercy of others. Oh no! Thank God for those who are in our lives, even the ones who may cause us pain and anguish. They, too, are there for a reason and a season. But, ultimately the power to live the life that God designed for us is already on the inside of us.
Ephesians clearly states, “…according to the power that works in us.” The power to overcome is on the inside. The power to have peace is on the inside. The power to have joy is on the inside. The power to prosper is on the inside.
It is all within you. Stop looking around and start looking within. Just as your life began inside of another human being, so, too, your new life with Christ begins with a decision that you make inside of you in your heart. Now, follow that pattern and dig deep inside and find the strength you need today to live the God kind of life.
