Welcome back and if you did not read last week’s blog, please take a moment to read it as this is a continuation of an Eight (8) part series based on the scripture in Revelations 5:12 AMP. Today my focus is on the POWER that we received through the sacrifice of Jesus’ death on the cross and His ascension into heaven. 

In my short time here on earth thus far, I have seen enough of what power can do to people and to humanity as a whole. I also know what being powerless can do to a person and I do not want to be on this side of it. Powerlessness opens the door to any and every attack upon your life. You will think that the world is gracious towards the powerless – NO, it is not. When you are powerless, you become vulnerable and susceptible to life. The spirit of God has breathed upon you His power when you came to accept Christ as your Lord and personal savior, but, until you recognize it, acknowledge and activate it, you will live in ignorance and powerlessness forever. In my misery, I embarked on a journey to understand the power of God – His divinity and Sovereignty. It was through this understanding that I woke up from my defeated thinking. If the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead resides in me, then I am empowered to do ALL things through Him who gives me strength. In case you’re wondering how powerful God is and the power He has given you, check out these scriptures:

Colossians 1:16 ESV: For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

Psalm 62:11 ESV: Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God,

Matthew 19:26 ESV : But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

2 Timothy 1:7 ESV: For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

2 Peter 1:3 ESV: His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence.

Ephesians 3:20-21 ESV: Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

May the Lord breathe upon you His glorious power this week in Jesus’ name. AMEN!
