- Ephesians 1:19-22 (NKJV) …the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. 22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church,
God lists two case studies in the Bible to help people know the extent of His power. During times of doubt and worry in the Old Testament God would remind His people of how he delivered his people from the slavery of Egypt and leading them to the Promised Land.

Check all the resumes in the world and you will not find, “I do resurrections.” Only God has that distinction.
What that means is that our greatest enemy has been conquered in Jesus’ resurrection. What that means is that our own resurrection has been assured (1 Thess. 4:14). What that means is that whether in this life or the life to come our God is all-sufficient.
Put your trust and hope in man and you will eventually reach a limit. Put your trust and hope in the God of the Bible and you will have limitless love and power forever at your disposal.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out where our ultimate trust and hope needs to be based.
If you have not already made that decision, why not do so today.
