“God is able to do far more than we could ever ask for or imagine. He does everything by His power that is working in us.”Ephesians 3:20
Ephesians is a powerful book in which Paul eloquently addresses topics that are central to what it means to be a Christian. Although Paul was in jail when he wrote the letters that constitute the Book of Ephesians, his letters are not sad or depressing. On the contrary, they are joyful and empowering. Paul reminds us that anything is possible if we are in union with God. His prayers are not only beautiful, but also poignant. Paul himself is a prime example of a man who refused to give up when times got tough. Perseverance and persistence characterized Paul, and he remained steadfast in honoring God and walking in His will.
It can be easy to rejoice in the Lord when things are going well. It may be more difficult when times are tough. However, Paul reminds us that God is with us in all times and through all things.
Consider the journey of your faith. Do you find yourself rejoicing in the Lord more often when things are going well than in hardship?
