Something In You + God's Ablity = God's Best


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

The first week of the year has gone by and I am sure, like myself, most will have written out their plans, declarations and proclaiming that 2010 will be their greatest year yet; declaring Jeremiah 29:11, God's hope and future plans for us all the way.
However, it is one thing for us to declare to have a good year, and another to see it manifested. The verse above, when looked at properly is divided into two parts;

The first part is thus: "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.... This shows God's infinite and amazing power and ability.

The second part is thus: "according to the power that works in us" Ah ah! This is the part we tend to overlook or not read as part of that scripture. This part tells us that there is something, an action that we must do. This tells us that we are 'conduits' (A means by which something is transmitted) to the manifestation of God's "exceedingly abundantly and above all we ask for or think" in our lives.

The question to ponder on is thus: "are you an open conduit for God's "exceedingly abundantly and above all that you ask for or think"?


In Ephesians 1:19-20, the power that works within us is confirmed as the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. It reads "I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power, that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. "


The power that works within us include:
The word 'works' in the opening scripture means: to act or operate effectively.

This means we must give this power within us a daily and continuous work out. It is no use if the power is just there doing nothing. We must EXERCISE this power, like one working out in the gym. We must confess, declare, and live out it's realities, every single day.

The result of this, when given to God's infinite ability, will provide awesome means to bring forth His best into our lives.

Power Within You + God's ability = God's Best


At this point, I am reminded of a story I heard once, of that of a man who kept praying and asking God to intervene in his life situations. He kept saying "God do something about this or that problem", however, God responded by saying "son, if you want me intervene, give me something to work with".

Are you working and living the intricacies of that something, that power with you, on a daily and continuous basis, to bring forth God's best for you this year?

God wants you to experience the best He has to offer you this year, because He has a good future planned for you as declared in Jeremiah 29:11, which reads "For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." However, we do have our part to play in this promise. We must REALISE the power within us and THEN workout this power to make it a good portal for God's best to be manifested in our lives.

So, as you start a new week, I encourage you to acknowledge and belief, without any doubt the power of God within you. I encourage you to put this power to work through Belief, willingness, obedience, prayer, patience, perseverance and praise, and watch God give you the best year you have ever had yet!

Have a great time living out the intricacies of the power of God that works within you, bringing into your reality the manifestation of God's best; whilst making Him famous along your way.

Much love, Remi
Be uplifted and Inspired

Encouraging words; as Ayo mentions, the power of the Holy Spirit is most important; otherwise we might depend on ourselves.
