“By His Virtue” ( Ephesians 3:20-21, WYC ) by Carley Evans

StJohnsAshfield StainedGlass Baptism

“And to Him that is mighty to do all things more plenteously than we ask or understand, by the virtue that worketh in us [after the virtue that worketh in us], to Him be glory in the church, and in Christ Jesus, into all the generations of the world of worlds [into all the generations of the worlds of worlds]. Amen.”

God is mighty. He is capable. He does “all things more plenteously than we ask or understand.” Almost goes without saying that we do not understand God. His thoughts are not like our thoughts; His ways are not like our ways. How many times do we fall into the trap of believing otherwise?

Jesus says for us to seek, for then we find. Paul says we don’t even know what to pray, so the Holy Spirit prays for us.

How can anyone think we are saved by anything we do? Rather, God declares His own virtue works in us to the praise of His glory.

“God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19, KJV)
