Scripture for Today: Ephesians 1:19 “so that you can know and understand what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength.”
It is a mistaken idea that many people believe; that Germany has no speed limits. It is true that sometimes there may be a stretch of autobahn without them, but it is more and more rare. Like France, Germany has a limit of up to 130 kilometer an hour (81mpg). It must be very frustrating for those drivers with powerful engines in their cars.
We like to think of having no limits. With recent advances in technology and science, it seems we are pushing many of our limits. For some, new inventions reaffirm a feeling of power and potential. There is less and less a need for God when we feel like “gods” ourselves.
Our verse for today describes a power that is truly limitless. When we compare our little achievements with the mighty power of the God of the universe, than we can see just how limited we are! His power cannot be measured. His power knows no limit. The surpassing greatness of His power brings us to our knees in stupefied awe! As Job 26:14 says, all of His creation demonstrates His power, yet it is but a whisper of what we hear of Him. “Who then can understand the thunder of His power?”
What is most amazing to me is that we as believers have this power working in and for us! It is not our power but His, working according to His will. When I come to the end of my resources, He offers His mighty strength!
Oh how I need Your power today! Thank you Lord, that You have no limits!
