Happy Saturday to you!

If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, then this is a very exciting day for you. Why? Well, it is exciting because I have come to remind you of good news. Some believers may already know this but are going through a trial and need a refresher. Other believers may not have been aware of this truth. Thus, it is a great day for us all (for those who knew and those who didn’t) because God wants us to remember that we have power.

The power we have from God is unlike any other power in the world. The power we obtain from God surpasses all authority and all influence that any man possesses in the earth. This power we have from God gives us the ability to do good in all circumstances. The power we have from God allows us to love our enemies and do good to those who despise us. The power we have from God allows us to walk in a spirit of forgiveness, forsaking hatred and resentment. The power we have from God gives us strength to work diligently, and with wisdom, to come up with innovative solutions to mind-blowing dilemmas.

When we made the choice to believe in Jesus Christ, to accept salvation through his death, burial, and resurrection, we were endowed with power. That power enables us to think right, talk right, and act right. It’s in moments where we forget that we have this power that we falter. Nevertheless, there’s good news! God knows that we falter and make mistakes. Yet, He remains gracious and merciful. Today’s post is a reminder from Him to us. It is a call to get up and utilize your God-given power.

Many people in this world use their power to harm others. Through it, they think that success has been realized. Even some believers have acted under the guise that their power was being exercised for good works when in fact they were not operating under the will of God. Nonetheless, for the non-believers reading this post, I want you to know that God’s power is demonstrated for love, for redemption, for healing, for renewal, for strength, for unity, and for peace. Be encouraged! There are believers, increasing in number, who are utilizing their God given power for love and fruitfulness. So, if you were down today, be lifted up. You possess power—God working in you—to turn that bad situation into a blessed situation.

"You have power from God to make good decisions."

Love,

Ephesians 1:15 I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, and for this reason 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. 17 I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, 18 so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power. 20 God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. 22 And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
