The Hospital Wall

While Bob was hospitalized in 2018 I often walked past a wall with a Bible verse written on it in large letters. Once home I could not remember exactly what verse I saw so often. When he was admitted for the pacemaker procedure I went back to photograph that wall.

eph 3 20 to 21Most likely the passage was posted to remind employees who must pass that wall on their way from the parking garage that the power of God is at work in them. And is it ever!!

But it was a constant reminder to me that all the people praying for Bob, and my own often seemingly weak prayers and pleads were also God’s power at work within me on behalf of Bob and the staff and even myself.

Never discount the power of God at work within us.

“IMMEASURABLY MORE THAN ALL WE CAN ASK OR IMAGINE” – what are you looking to God for? Can you stretch your trust to this point? Would you LET His power be at work within and through you this week?

Indulge me please. Just read it two more times, slowly …

20 Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen. AMPLIFIED Version

 

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, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. EPH 3: 20-21 NKJV
