ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS, Beloved of the LORD, John 3:16, 12:24-26, 17:20-26
POWER “WORTH CONSIDERING 2/15/19 (Across my desk this morning.)
“…And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” (Ephesians 3:17–18, NIV)
Tap into God’s power
You may have things in your life that seem dead—a relationship, a business, your health. Jesus would say to you that He has power over death. God’s love can bring that relationship back to life that seems dead to you and take it to an entirely new level. Maybe you feel that you have a “dead-end job,” or maybe you think your life is going nowhere and you have no purpose. We want to encourage you today! The same power that raised Jesus from the dead can revitalize your career and put you on a path of success. If you start believing again, God is going to resurrect what you thought was dead. You may have tried and failed, but dreams that you’ve given up on are going to suddenly come back to life. Problems that looked permanent are going to suddenly turn around. God has the final say. He hasn’t changed His mind.
A Prayer for Today
“God, today I will be surrounded by Your favor and no weapon formed against me will prosper. You have power over death and I believe that your transforming power can bring hope, peace, joy, and fulfillment to my life. In Jesus’ Name – Amen.”
The Holy Spirit got me up at 3:30 this morning to do this so it must be important for some one?
POWER in the Greek comes from the word: dunamis, where we get the word dynamite where we translate Holy Spirit. http://abundantministriesfellowship.com/lessons/lesson_2006-05-25.html Is worth the time to look up.
With a battery for power there is the individual potential power of the battery itself and then the power that can come from many batteries in series or parallel which is greater. The Church of Christ Jesus also works this same way. There are mighty men of faith individually and there are congregations of great united power in heart faith where much good is accomplished. Hebrews 11 is a good place to see this history in action in the Holy Bible.
Paul writes an end time prophesy to Timothy in 2 Tim.3:5 that there would be a time of “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” In John 17:22 Jesus prayed these words, “And the glory (power) which thou gavest me I have given them: that they may be one, even as we are one:” Notice that the thought of these words is that the Glory or Power would bring HIS servants into being “ONE”…. Read the context: 20-26.
The Enemy has been giving my feet a really tough time this last 6 months, sometimes like walking on broken glass. I ask for prayer in “Worth Considering ” the other day and some of you prayed for me. Yesterday was a good foot day and was able to do some outside work. Blessings and Thanks. Not totally healed but on the way and swelling is way down this morning. So distance make no difference but love, faith and unity does. Be Blessed in your day.
Jesus left us with these words, “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. Jn. 8:7-8 and ” And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:22-24
So if you want to get things done, God’s way, you first must fully charge your own battery by feeding on the Word of God till it is more real than the lusts of the world. And then you need to find others to join with that are doing the same thing. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” Rom.10:17 Faith = Power.
Yours in HIS great love and wonderful Grace and Mercy, Ken<><
