A Busy Week
I have had a busy week. I try to keep within the boundaries of my energy but my diary ran away with me! Consequently I am writing this much later in the week than I usually do. I started to think what to write about but I was tired and my brain didn't want to work. In Isaiah 30 v.19 it says "The Lord will be gracious if you ask for help. He will surely respond to the sound of your cries". I always pray before I start to write and so I asked God to give me an idea or Bible verse to work on.
God is able to do more than we can imagine
After a while a verse from Ephesians came to my mind. It is Ch.3 v.20 " Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us" or as The Message says "far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams".
God has so much more to offer
Our human minds can restrict Jesus but He has so much more to offer than we can possibly imagine.
How often do we feel that we have run out of energy, not only physically and emotionally but also spiritually. Jesus wants us to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. We think of empowering as being given physical power but the Holy Spirit inspires and enables us to do God's work not under our own steam but under His.
Ask God for strength
So if you are feeling tired and uninspired this week pray for God to fill you with His Spirit and then you can achieve so much more than doing it alone. Have a good week and I will finish with a quote from Cris Rogers, one of my favourite Christian writers
God has more for us to receive
More for us to become
And further for us to go. Amen
