“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” (Ephesians 3:20-21).

It is a blessing to know that God is able to do far beyond what we think is possible, and He is able to do that through “the power that works us.” (See the previous post for how we access that power and love.) When we are being used for God’s glory, we are part of that great chorus of believers from generations past – all the way back to the beginning – who give praise, honor and love to our King Jesus. God can use you today in your place of work, classroom, ball field, grocery store, neighborhood or half way around the world. Just be open to His tug on your heart for compassion; have your eyes open to the possibilities and to the needs of your neighbor; get past the noise and listen to the clear instruction of our Lord. If we do this consistently, we will be amazed at how God will use little you and little me for wonderful, powerful, and eternal change. It will be far more than we ever thought possible. And that power is even more exponential when a community (a local church) is united together for this purpose. Are you ready for this kind of life?
