Died & Buried with Christ
Ephesians 1:19-20 NLT
“I also 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.”

In Ephesians 1:19, 20, The bible says that this is the same mighty power that raised Jesus on the third day.
How much power did it take for God to send that glory into that empty tomb which was sealed to bring Jesus out. The bible says that this is the same power available for us.
Many a times it’s not that we don’t have the power but we don’t understand the value of that power that is already in us.
Paul says, “my prayer for you is that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us”.
This is the glorious power, the mighty power that could raise Jesus who was crucified on the cross, the mighty power that the enemy fought against. If the enemy fought somebody greatest, it has to be Jesus. The devil cannot fight you more than he fought Jesus.
Whatever the enemy did to Jesus to make sure He doesn’t come back to life, God sent enough power from heaven to raise Jesus back to life.
Paul says that we understand that power, the incredible greatness, the measure of that power. Not only that you understand but also know that it is not available for everybody.
Not everyone who calls himself a Christian can have access to this power. According to Ephesians, it is only available for those who BELIEVE, who are willing to trust Him, seek and walk behind Him, for the people who would believe irrespective of how they feel or what they see, they will still live by faith and not by sight.
The more you understand, the more you will believe and the more you believe, the more you will experience it.
Hope that these words come alive for you as you meditate on God’s word and that you would begin to see scriptures that will unlock God’s power over your life and that you’d begin to realise that you do not have to live your life on emptiness, dryness, in brokenness, in a place that you are bankrupt mentally, physically or emotionally but you’d realise that you can live in a place where you are reigning in power.
The bible says, the power that Jesus moved in when He was on the earth, the greater power is available for us and the Holy Spirit will help us not just understand this power but also helps us to believe in it.
