The date was May 18, 1980. At 8:32 AM in the Cascade mountain range in Washington Mount St. Helens erupted. The explosion ripped 1,300 feet, a 1/4 of a mile off the mountain. It was equal to 10 million tons of TNT exploding. To give you an idea of what that means it was equal to 500 bombs like the one dropped on Hiroshima during W.W.II. That is a whole lot of power but that is pale when comparing it to the power of God.
Wouldn’t it be great in light of all that is happening in our world _ whether it is our personal world or planet earth _ for God’s power to be displayed? Well guess what… It can be. I love the promise of Ephesians 3:20-21. “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work with us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! (Ephesians 3:20-21) Wow! Does it really say “more than we ask or imagine”? Yep, that’s what it says and it means exactly what it says.
So how can we tap into that power source? The Apostle John gives us the answer: “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” (1 John 5:14-15)
So there you have it church _ the solution to all our problems. So don’t just sit there _ quit the whining _ quit the worrying and pray then watch God’s awesome display of power at work.
