Praise God for His Amazing Grace! "The Church"If you haven't…
I have often secretly chuckled when I hear people refer to electricity as “power”: “Is the power back on?”.
I don’t think anything derogatory; in fact, I don’t even know that the wording is inaccurate. Rather, what I find intriguing is the idea that we (people) understand electricity to be “power”.
Here is what one website says on the matter: “While energy is the ability to do work, Power is its measurement, which calculates the time by which the energy has been used.”
For our purposes today I would rather not become distracted by discussing the accuracy of that quote.
Rather what I encourage you to consider today is ultimate power and the source of it.
For example, I have never discussed it with anyone but I suspect that when most people see water funneled through a dam, on a river, they probably think of the electricity that is being generated because of it.
Certainly, I think of that too, but what captivates me more is considering the raw POWER that is being harnessed from God’s creation. I think of how man harnesses the power of God.
After all, it is God’s creation and design that allows water to flow down creeks and rivers so that man can harness that power and turn it into electricity. (By the way, God sees these huge dams as an abominable afront to His creation; but that is not what we are discussing today.)
Previously I have addressed the idea of how God is “omnipotent”; all-powerful. Certainly God is “All-Powerful” and what’s more is… He offers all of that “power” to YOU!
There is only one power on earth that I can think of that is powerful enough to change God’s course and that is your own individual will: But you know, even that was given to you by God. Nevertheless, He honors the choices and decisions that you make.
Holy Spirit Power
Still, God has given you a power that is stronger than anything else on earth if you will only partner with him in EVERY area of life.
And you shall take POWER after the Holy Spirit has come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
What a glorious promise and provision we have, in Messiah, that we can walk in His power. Not only may we do so, but He even WANTS us to!
It is ALL through the Bible…
“He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.Mark 16:16-18
“These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues;
they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Psalm 8:5-8 TPT
5 Yet what honor you have given to men,
created only a little lower than Elohim,
crowned like kings and queens with glory and magnificence.
6 You have delegated to them
mastery over all you have made,
making everything subservient to their authority,
placing earth itself under the feet of your image-bearers.
7–8 All the created order and every living thing
of the earth, sky, and sea—
the wildest beasts and all the sea creatures—
everything is in submission to Adam’s sons.
Now I would say that these verses express what REAL power is all about wouldn’t you?
The power provided to all of God’s people is available for you today. However, you need to know that while God’s heart aches to share His Glory with you, at the same time He will only give it to those who He feels will be a good steward of it.
He wants you to become one with Him so that this unity of glory can be expressed among all people of the earth. Becoming one with the Most High God is a process: It doesn’t “just happen”.
One thing is for sure though: If you desire this unity of power that I am speaking of, you will need to really commit to your relationship with Him just as you would any other relationship that you would really want to develop: Even more so.
Seek first the Kingdom of God and He will lead you to the many ways His power can be utilized in your life so that both He and you can be glorified to Honor the King of Kings!
