Daily Bread 10/14/2021


Daily Bread – October 14, 2021 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Ephesians 1:19 – …and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working power of His mighty strength, Entrusted With Power To Fulfill Our Father’s Will The use of four of the six “power” words in one verse is similar to Ephesians 6:10, which commands the saints to be ‘endunamoo’ (“strong”) in the Lord and in the ‘kratos’ (“might”) of His ‘ischus’ (“strength”), or “to be endued with the power of the Lord in the absolute sovereign rule that throws down all opposing forces, and upholds everything according to His dictates through His own divine abilities.” Our Father, Who is in Heaven, wants us to be bold and have a strong assurance that we can do all things through Christ Who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13). There is a power working within us, and this is the fullness of every dimension of God’s own power (Ephesians 3:20). He wants us to know He has not withheld any of His power or resources from us, but has entrusted us with all He has so we might fulfill His will on Earth – just as it is in Heaven. Just as Father wanted Abraham to be certain of the promise and swore an oath, He has also given us a guarantee – the guarantee of the Spirit. In this, God has done something even greater for us. He sealed us and endued us with His Spirit so our faith would know no limits (Luke 24:49; Hebrews 6:13-19, 10:22-23). God has given us this great potential. However, that potential energy and power cannot be released until movement begins. It is like a great boulder hanging on the edge of a cliff. The boulder has enormous potential power, but until it is released from the clutches of the Earth, it will only remain a potential threat. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
