Consider the final words of the Lord's Prayer: "For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen."
Every time we pray it, we re-affirm our conviction that our God is indeed a God of power.
God's infinite power means that God is infinitely capable. He can do anything he wants to do.
"Now unto him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work in us" said the Apostle Paul (Ephesians 3:20).
God uses his power to lead us to Jesus Christ, to shepherd and sustain us, to guard us, and to take us to heaven.
He uses his power to bless us because he loves us and we love him.
"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation"(Ps. 91:14-16 NIV).
Call upon His name.
Trust Him to work in your life with his mighty power.
Expect him to do more in your life than you ask or even imagine.
