To UswardMarch 30, 2015
"Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to usward" (Ps. 40:5).
Did you notice this phrase in Ephesians 1:19, "The exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe?"
All the demonstration of the glory of God shown in the manifestation of His omnipotence pointed to man "to usward."
The Cross of Christ "with what is revealed of obedience to God, atonement for sin, and crushing defeat for the enemies of divine authority shows us a representative Man."
Christ was our Representative, our Substitute, overcoming for mankind and preparing a throne and a heavenly ministry for those who should overcome through Him.
Therefore, the source of our authority is found in the resurrection and seating of Christ by God. In the Book of Ephesians, we learn that God wants the Church to gain revelation knowledge of all that this means to us.
Confession: I am a believer. I am receiving the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God. The eyes of my understanding are being enlightened that I may know what is the exceeding greatness of God's power to usward who believe!
