I was reading this morning in Ephesians 6:10-20 where it says in verse 10
“Finally be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.”
I was struck by the words ‘strength of his might’ and that lead me to Ephesians 1:19 that says this . . .and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power towards us who believe . . .
The proof or example he gives to underscore this immeasurable greatness and strength of his might is the power that resurrected Christ from the dead and seated him in heavenly places.
In my world of coaching and psychology measuring is a big deal. In coaching we observe and measure patterns then define measured steps to change behaviors. Psychology, as in other sciences, empirical data is accumulated, evaluated, measured to disprove theories. Yet in God’s economy the strength of his power toward those who believe, who trust him is immeasurable. Think about that . . . it cannot be measured. Scripture tries to help us put guardrails on that concept by offering the example of resurrection power and our minds struggle to even grasp that concept. So this available power is greater than or at least equal to the resurrection power that sustained and empowered Christ through the resurrection process to his current position, at the right hand of God the Father. We often hear that we only use a portion of our brain’s capacity. A far greater example of power under utilized or even disbelieved is the availability to us of the immeasurable greatness of his power toward
us as believers. Whom then shall I fear? Of what shall I be afraid?
Be encouraged today by his great love and immeasurable greatness and power available in the midst of whatever you are facing.

Miracles come from this power. This past Christmas I start seeing in a new way. I now believe in a new deeper way that miracles are real by the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. May I be attentive to His power all around me. Thanks Vicki

Amen to that Ann!
I thought about LeeAnn here. Relying on the strength and might of God who created everything (most specifically when your strength is gone).
I was thinking about and praying for your dad when I wrote it. At the end of ourselves there is much more of God. His strength carries them both beyond what they can or could do without it.
