Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 August 19

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. (Ephesians 3:17-21)

Today’s Morsel:  One of the things I have discovered about being a Christian is that most people who say that they are Christians do not understand the power that they have with them.   Many of them seem to see the Holy Ghost as something nice to have, but fail to realize Its power.  The Holy Ghost is Christ in you.  It is everything you need to be successful in life.  It is wisdom beyond measure.  It is strength when you are weak and hope when you are hopeless.  If you have the Holy Ghost, and yet you are always looking for others to pick you up when you are down, you may be down a long time.  You have to learn how to use what is inside of you.  Do as Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 1:6 and stir up the gift that is within thee.  Paul said that God is able to do exceeding abundant above all that we could ask or think according to the power that works in us.  God has given you the power.  So don’t think He’s going to use it for you, too.  He requires you to keep it stirred up and active.  

Sing:  He gives strength to me, as I worship Him; as my heart is filled with praise.  Jesus breaks the bands, when I raise my hands; He gives glorious victory!

Thought For Today:  Stir up the gift that is within you.
