God’s Boundless Power Is All around Us 神無限的能力始終圍繞我們“(Ephesians 以弗所書 1:18-21)

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.


God is spirit and His universe is basically spiritual! Whatever God is He is infinitely. In Him lies all the power there is; any power at work anywhere is His. Even the power to do evil (such as the abilities Lucifer had received but misused to become the devil he is) must first have come from Him since there is no other source from which it could come. The fact of sin introduces a confusing element into our thinking about God and the universe, and requires that we suspend judgment on many things. The wise man will note that the things we cannot understand have nothing to do with our salvation. We are saved by the truth we know, and true Christians know that the boundless power of our infinite God is all around us, preserving us and keeping us into salvation ready to be revealed.


Prayer: Sovereign Lord, thank you for your supreme power and unchanging love. Because of these two precious things we can trust you for every situation in our lives, and we need fear no earthly or spiritual authority that may seek to harm us. What a blessing to have the fullness of Christ – all his riches and blessings – poured out upon us! Amen.

禱告: 至高無上的主啊,感謝你至上的能力和不變的愛。因著這兩樣的寶貝,我們在生活每一個處境裡都能夠信靠你,並且毋需懼怕地上或靈界上的權勢來尋索傷害我們。有著基督的豐滿,就是祂一切的豐饒和福氣,澆灌我們是何等的祝福!阿們。
