    "The strength of the Heavenlies"

    The Strength in the Heavenlies

    All spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)
    The unsearchable riches of Christ. (Ephesians 3:8)

    God is able to make all grace abound toward you. (2 Corinthians 9:8)

    These verses mean that just as the overflowing, omnipotent power of God was exhibited in and through our Lord, so it will be exhibited in and through us when we are raised up into the heavenly places. Get into the habit of saying—“Lord Jesus, prove Thyself sufficient in me for this thing now.” Do not say—“Oh Lord, show me what to do”; let Him do it and it will be done. It is His perfections, not ours; His patience, His love, His holiness, His strength—“all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus.” How blind we are! There is a danger with the children of God of getting too familiar with sublime things. We talk so much about these wonderful realities, and forget that we have to exhibit them in our lives. It is perilously possible to mistake the exposition of the truth for the truth; to run away with the idea that because we are able to expound these things we are living them too. Paul’s warning comes home to us—“. . . lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”

    Yep, don't get so taken up with the waves and the sounds of the storm that you forget to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.

    We are apt to do that and to His hurt. But then there is His mercy which is new every morning.
