The incredible greatness of his power
Written March 21, 2012
Ephesians 1:19 (GW) You will also know the unlimited greatness of his power as it works with might and strength for us, the believers.
A few days ago, I realized that God answers my most pressing questions in such a loving way so that I can understand. He reduced me to grateful tears. It was such a tender moment. It was an unexpected moment that opened my eyes to his love. I had been wrestling with a situation for a while.
Those who have children understand how kids can be relentless in their pursuit of things they really want. That describes my relationship with the Lord. There are a few wishes I have that are not becoming reality. God knows my history, my desires and my gifting. He desires that I understand and accept things about myself, so that I can move on. In responding to me, He set the record straight so that I understood the benefits of his decision.
I was unable to struggle because he touched the very core of who I am. You see, only God knows your real heart. When you allow God to know the real you, it becomes impossible to struggle. Instead, when you listen to God, you come to understand yourself. All I could do was cry like a child. I finally listened to and understood what the Lord wanted me to know.
I have peace and I feel happier knowing God’s heart. After all, I am a woman after his heart.
