E3;20_Prayer Post 4

Spiritual Snapshot

Let’s imagine that you witness a building on fire. The entire thing is consumed with flames and someone needs to do something about it. You quickly decide to grab a bucket filled with water to go put the fire out. Unfortunately, a single bucket filled with a miniscule amount of water really will not do the job. You need something greater and more powerful. This past Sunday, Pastor Joey reminded us that God is our infinite power supply. Ephesians 3:20-21 tells us, “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” God works with in and through us to accomplish His will. All we need to do is have faith and prayerfully seek after it. We continue to see fruit from our House of Prayer challenge. If you did not participate, it is not to late to start now. Tap into to the power of God through prayer and see what He is able to accomplish.
