Ephesians 3:20-21, ”Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Over the years, we have done a lot of teaching on the Kingdom of God. We are going to again teach about the Kingdom of God as part of the series “Change Your Frame, Change Your Life.”
There are over 6 billion people on planet Earth and only a few of them know why they exist. People have the frame that was given to them by their training as children, their surroundings, their friends, their schools, and more. All of this is part of our growth and development, but at some point in your life you connected with the Lord and His kingdom.
Because of this connection, your purpose is related to something bigger than yourself, yet is part of you, the Kingdom of God. The “Kingdom Frame” is our most meaningful and purposeful frame of life and mind. Many of the scriptures that come to your heart and mind relate to your frame and position in the Kingdom of God.
Ephesians 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rootedand grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
It is important to understand that Jesus wasn't created at birth, He is eternal and preexistent. There is the erroneous doctrine that Jesus is not God because he was born as a human, but His conception was supernatural which afforded Him the power of being the sinless Lamb of God. This is way one of His given names was, “Emmanuel,: meaning “God with us.”
Ephesians Chapter Three closes with this powerful affirmation, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (3:20-21)
It is remarkable to note the power and ability accrued by the Kingdom of God has also been vested in us, in Christ. Now that we are part of God's kingdom, He does not want to function without us.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”
This is not only supernatural power, but every kind of power, ability, skill, favor, privilege, understanding, knowledge that He has given you and me, or allowed us to possess.
What I realized was that the power we have is not limited to supernatural power. Everything God does is not supernatural. Everything people need is not received by a supernatural act. We need everything working with power.
Whatever effective power, ability, skill, favor, privilege, understanding, or knowledge that you have is shaped by your relationship with Christ and empowered by the kingdom of God within you.
We remember the words of Jesus Matthew 6:10, Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
This is our Kingdom Frame.
