Let’s say your car is designed to go 180 mph, but you will not exceed 15 mph; that car is nowhere near operating up to its capabilities. Many believers are nowhere near performing up to their spiritual potential if the extent of their relationship with God is primarily based on their involvement in church activities; in such cases, they are creeping along. Buckle up—HOLD ON—and let God take the wheel in 2024.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, (Ephesians 3:20 KJV)
According to the power that works in us, it is the most important part of that verse. God’s got the power; He’s omnipotent; however, it’s proportioned according to the power that works in us. Mark 4:24 says, “By your own standard of measurement [that is, to the extent that you study spiritual truth and apply godly wisdom] it will be measured to you [and you will be given even greater ability to respond]—and more will be given to you besides.” (AMP)
Give God something to work with.
The Holy Spirit dwells in each believer, but if we want to experience His fullness, that’s determined by our willingness to love and pursue Him. What we invest in the Spirit is the measure we can withdraw. Don’t expect His best for our lives when we’re unwilling to give Him our best.
Do you want God to do exceedingly above all you can ask or think?
Let Him take the wheel in 2024.
