Today’s confession rides the coattails of yesterday. If you haven’t read December 8th’s confession yet, I suggest you read it HERE.
I have a confession. I am one of those Hallmark Christmas Movie junkees. I rarely watch tv—unless it involves ideas such as sentimental storylines, familiar actors/actresses, glorious miracles, and predictable endings. That’s why I love them so much.
“But Aleisha,” a family member cocked her head at me. “You prefer psychological novels with unguessable twists.”
Yes. True. But sometimes a girl just wants to cuddle up on the couch and know that everything is going to work out in the end. And sometimes a girl also wants to know that things will be BETTER in the end.
Enter the genre of Christmas Hallmark movies!
The girl gets the guy. Relationships are reconciled. Joy is restored. It’s all stuff of miracles. And miracles can be especially needed at Christmas.
And yet, we don’t have to live in a Hallmark snow globe to experience this kind of miraculous ending.
My favorite verse promises us that God “can do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or thin, according to the power that works within us.”
Do we trust this? Do we trust that Father IS WORKING in ways far better than we can even imagine?
What would your day look like today if you were to confess and trust the hope of Ephesians 3:20-21?
Today, as I glimpse God’s amazing power, unimaginable love, and glorious fullness, I give glory to Christ Jesus. Father is doing far more abundantly beyond anything that I can ask or think in this day. He is doing immeasurably more this Christmas season. He is doing things above and beyond in my life. His power works within me. The same God who raised Jesus to life lives in me. The Spirit breathes life into me. His power works within me throughout my day.
(Based on Ephesians 3:20-21 and Romans 8:11)
p.s. Where did you see God's power, love, or fullness today? Leave me a comment and I will be praising God with you!
