"The power that worketh in us"

Perhaps the most important lesson the Scriptures teach is that power belongs to God. Paul recorded his grateful recognition that divine power is active in human thought when he wrote to the Ephesians (3:20), "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, unto him be glory." In another letter he said (Phil. 2:13), "It is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."

Undoubtedly, divine power is working in human consciousness when good is expressed there, when constructive, useful, and beneficial capabilities shape the accomplishments of thinkers. Christian Science makes it clear that such power, or ability to act, is increased when it is recognized that power has its source in God and is only reflected by the individual. All may avail themselves of it to any degree. God withholds no measure of His might.
