For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen. (Rom. 11:36)
God is Source of all things, the Creator of all things and the consummation of all things. Of Him, through Him and to Him reveals the sovereignty of Almighty God. And yet there is more. He has chosen to live in and work His purposes through those who believe.
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, (Eph. 3:20)
The power that is of Him, through Him and to Him lives in us! “For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” (Phil. 2:13)
God has chosen to accomplish His purposes through you and me! That is why Paul could say; “We then, as workers together with Him…” (2 Cor. 6:1)
Do you see yourself working with God? Can you see yourself as an agent of His will, an ambassador of His Kingdom and an instigator of His purposes? God has chosen to share His power and purposes with us, those who have been created in His image by the new birth. If we would meditate on that until it comes alive in our hearts, our whole understanding of life would radically change.
We weren’t created to passively accept the darkness and corruption of the world. We were created to speak His Word into our circumstances and stand firmly in His provision for us. We are equipped to submit to God, resist the devil and HE WILL FLEE! (James 4:7)
