In Ephesians 3, Paul calls himself the least of all saints. Little did he know the impact he would have on all Christianity. Have you ever felt to be the least? When you do, continue reading this passage in Ephesians. Paul, despite feeling as though he was the least, had confidence in the power of grace. He knew that by grace he was being used by God to share the gospel. And by faith, we can boldly access the Father. Not only do we have access, we also can intercede for others. Doesn’t matter who we are, what we have done, what we look like. By faith, we have access. Paul continues in the scripture to pray for the Ephesians, and we get to this well known scripture that says Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us Ephesians 3:20.Are you also discounting God through your lack of confidence? Do you discredit His ability to use you? Do you believe that He will do as He has said and hears your prayers? Have you made Him lesser because you feel unworthy?
1 John 4:4-6says Greater is He that is in me. Do you believe that He is within you? Do you believe you have overcame them? “Them” can be anything you are facing right now. You have overcome idolatry, sexual sin, a foul mouth, gossip. You have overcome anxiety, depression, PTSD, cancer, diabetes. You have overcome if you would just believe. And when you overcome you exude confidence and boldness in God. He is the lifter of our heads. We were not meant to walk around slumped to the ground. We were not meant to be so self-conscious and insecure that we don’t even try to pray. Prayer is the answer. In prayer we become strong and we are reminded of how loved we are. We are reminded of God’s strength and His purpose for us. In prayer we intercede for our brothers and sisters. In prayer is healing from whatever is still hurting you from your past. Prayer is the answer and we must boldly, confidently pray. Not by our works but by our faith will things begin to change through Kingdom Prayer.
