This past month, God put in my heart to blog on a series of “The power of….” My desire was to share the power that God gives us. I wanted to share with you how He can make us able to do things we never imagined we could do. For me, that meant letting go, and not dwelling upon certain things from my past. But here I am, free from all of that. Through Jesus Christ, all things are made new, and when we receive his Holy Spirit, we are empowered to do all things through Him who strengthens us. The Bible 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).
God is so good and faithful to us. So, before I close this series, I need you to know ultimately there is nothing and no one more powerful than Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. I mean NOTHING. There is power just in the mention of His name. In Romans 14:11, it is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.’”
Where am I trying to go with this? Basically, I want to tell you that God holds the ultimate power over any circumstances you may be facing. Whether they are big or small. Whether the circumstances deem it impossible to change. I know and worship a God who rejects impossibilities. He makes that which appears impossible, possible. Nothing you may be facing is too great for God to get you through.
Have your kids fallen into drugs? Have you lost your job? Are you in the wrong relationship? Has everyone left you alone? Are you losing hope? Guess what? God is GREATER than all of that. He is greater than all the messes we get ourselves in. He is able to take your circumstances, and exceedingly and abundantly change them, because He holds the ultimate power.
His only Son, Jesus Christ, defeated death and was raised on the third day. Live consistently with His example, keep pushing forward, and don’t let go. God is with you. He has the power to change your sorrow into joy. He can change your mourning into praise, and your failure into victory. 1 John 4:4 tells us that “you are from God, and have conquered them; for the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
Don’t let your situation produce doubts about what God can do with you and through you. May you be blessed to bless others. May you be empowered to change the world, and transformed to be who He has called you to be.
