Experiencing the Holy Spirit # 39

It will become to you a mighty lever to raise you out of the self-seeking which is quite content with only being prepared for blessing. It will urge you to enter into and become firmly rooted in the love of God. It will convince you that nothing less than Christ Himself dwelling in your heart can keep such a love abiding in you. It will make the fullness of God a reality within you.

God down on your knees and summon to your aid the wealth of God's glory. Continue to do this until your heart is able to utter the response: "Yes, being filled with the fullness of God is what my God has prepared for me."

With this glorious prospect before us, join with the apostle in the doxology: "Unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us (the power of His might), unto Him be the glory" (Ephesians 3:20-21). Desire nothing less than these riches of the glory of God. Today, if you have never done it before, be "filled with the fullness of God."

When God said to Abraham, "I am God Almighty," He invited him to trust His omnipotence to fulfill His promise. When Jesus went down into the grave, it was in the faith that God's omnipotence could lift Him to the throne of His glory. That same omnipotence waits to work out God's purpose in them that believe in Him to do so. Let our hearts say, "Unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, unto Him be the glory."
