The Power Toward Us is the Triune God
Eph 1:18-19 ...that you may know...what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe... (22) And He subjected all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church, (23) Which is His Body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all.
Words of Ministry
The power that is toward us is the Triune
God. This power is not only the creating power, but the power that has passed through incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. After all these steps, the Triune God comes to us as such a power. We need to believe that this power is now right within us. Many of us, however, are too natural and too logical and say, "How could such a power be in me? I realize that I have repented, that I have confessed my sins to God, and that I believe in Him and trust Him... But at the moment I believed I did not feel that divine power was installed in me." Let us consider the matter this way. We have been reborn, regenerated. To be reborn is to have God born in us. Do you believe that God has been born into you? The very God who has been born into you is the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. By the time this God was born into you, He had already passed through creation, incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. Did you feel all this when you were regenerated? Whether you had any feeling regarding it or not means nothing. What is important is that you believe whatever the Bible says. At the time you believed, something happened to you and in you, although you might not have understood what it was. What happened was that the power, the Triune God Himself, was installed in you.
