Paul told the Ephesian Christians “I pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe Him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now He is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else– not only in this world, but also in the world to come.” Ephesians 1:19-21 NLT
We know, of course, that God is our help in times of trouble; we believe that He is able to help us. Sometimes, our need seems insurmountable, much, much too big for us to handle, and we turn to Him in desperation.
But Paul is pointing out here that God’s power, available on behalf of those who believe in Him, is far greater than we can understand without divine aid. When we look at the fact that this power of God actually raised Christ from the clutches of death and in one action placed Him far above the most powerful authorities, in this world and the world to come– we find we had no idea Who we are turning to for help. If He is our present help in times of trouble, truly we have nothing to fear.
Nothing is too hard for God. When we turn to Him for help, He brings the Highest Power in the Universe to our aid. With Him, we can face anything.
