31 Jesus-Benefits: That Same Power

“And you will know that God’s power is very great for us who believe. That power is the same as the great strength God used to raise Christ from the dead” (Ephesians 1:19-20).

Day 22 and there are some Jesus-benefits I can’t quite wrap my head around. This is one of them:

God’s mighty power working in me.

Those verses above – did you take them in? God’s power for us who believe is the same power that raised Christ from the dead! Christ who lay, lifeless and motionless, in a borrowed tomb. The power of God came when His Holy Spirit breathed life into Jesus’ already-deadness, and it was an angel of the LORD who rolled away the stone too large for a human being to move. That same power is at work in us! Amazing!

“With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20).

  1. Definitely one that I meditate on and wrestle with frequently because I can’t quite wrap my head around it either. I think we miss a huge amount of what God intends for our Christian walk and desire to live closer to His plan.

    • Yes, it’s hard to understand sometimes why we’re missing so much. Reading about Peter in Acts 5 and how expectant the people were for healing and blessing, I think wouldn’t it be great if the western world had that attitude today.
