God’s Mighty Power & Blueberry Donuts

Ephesians 1:19-20 (cev)

I want you to know about the great and mighty power that God has for us followers. It is the same wonderful power he used when he raised Christ from death and let him sit at his right side in heaven.

Do you ever pray half-heartedly? Almost like a “if you feel like it” kind of request? I do that a lot. Recently, I realized that I was approaching God that way in order to protect myself from disappointment and rejection. If God didn’t answer my prayers, I needed a plan B to fall back. Being hopeful and faithful is scary – it’s vulnerable, out of control; it’s surrendering completely. So, it’s easy to want a “just incase”.

But our entire faith hinges on the fact that God is good and trustworthy. Without that belief, is what we have really belief at all? If the answer is yes, than we have to change our approach to God. We have to understand that when we’re bringing our prayers and requests to Him, we’re approaching the same God who raised Jesus from the grave.

The power that God used to resurrect Jesus is the same power He uses to answer our prayers. Knowing that, is there any reason to hold back faith in prayer? Is there any reason to have a plan B? Is there anything God can’t do?

There are certainly things that God chooses not to do, and while we’ll never fully understand why, we have to continuously remind ourselves of what Romans 8:28 teaches. “We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him. These are the people God chose, because that was his plan (ERV).”

When we believe that God is good, and we believe that we have access to the same power that brought Jesus back from death, we can approach God expectantly in prayer. In Mark 11:24, Jesus tells us to “ask for what you want in prayer. And if you believe that you have received those things, then they will be yours (ERV).”

Write

Have you been hesitantly or half-heartedly praying over anything? What is causing you to doubt God’s goodness or ability to answer your prayer?

Pray

Re-approach God with anything that you’ve been praying about half-heartedly with a restored belief in His mighty power.
