ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN FOR JUNE 18, 2022 (THE ALL-SURPASSING GOD)
TOPIC: THE ALL-SURPASSING GOD
Scripture: Ephesians 3:14-21
My last child shook the hands of the Vice Chancellor who visited their school. He displayed his hands with great joy and announced that he had become special for attaining such a feat.
Today’s passage describes some characteristics of the all-surpassing God: He is the Father of all fathers with a rich treasury of grace to strengthen all men (vv. 15-16); His power can do far above all that we dare ask or think (v.20); His ability transcends beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams. He is able to give us the nations and uttermost parts of the earth for our possession (Psa.1:8).
What should be our response to this all-surpassing God? My little boy was filled with joy and boldness that he encountered royalty. If you understand the greatness of this God, the mountains confronting you will diminish in your thoughts, and your faith and courage will rise above them.
Your real concern should be to become more intimate with Him in personal prayers and fasting, dedicated daily Bible study with meditation to the intent that your heart and body will become wholly filled and saturated by Him. You will discover that He is greater than the greatest and stronger than the strongest. His all-surpassing power and greatness will do more than you have been asking or thinking in Jesus’ name.
Prayer: O God, I acknowledge your supremacy over my challenging situations and stand in faith above them in Jesus’ name, Amen
