A.W. Tozer in his book, The Counselor: Straight Talk About the Holy Spirit from a 20th Century Prophet, writes:

Unbelief says, “Some other time, but not now; some other place, but not here; some other people, but not us.” Faith says, “Anything He did anywhere else He will do here; anything He did any other time He is willing to do now; anything He ever did for other people He is willing to do for us!” With our feet on the ground, and our head cool, but with our heart ablaze with the love of God, we walk out in this fullness of the Spirit, if we will yield and obey. God wants to work through you!

God is “able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,” (Ephesians 3:20, ESV).

Thinking about the truth of the quote above, and the verse above… we should be praising Him.  We can have faith because He is able to work in us.  So “to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever.  Amen,” (Ephesians 3:21, ESV).
