Empowered

I am so grateful today that I am not required to live my life in my own strength and power; indeed, an unlimited supply of grace, mercy, and hope are available to me through the power of God. This is nothing short of a miracle!

Let’s remember to walk in the strength and authority that God grants to us every day. This is a gift from the Lord, and it is to be treasured and utilized as often as possible.

Living by God’s power doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re going to do miracles, although it certainly is possible – rather, I think it means that we can rely on God 100% to handle the situations that challenge us, rather than trusting in our own finite abilities and efforts.

Here are a few key questions to ponder today: 

  • Are you plugged in to the Lord? 
  • If not, what is your power source? 
  • Is it 100% reliable and trustworthy? 

Some food for thought….

Dear Jesus, I thank You for being the Author and Finisher of my faith, the only true omnipotent One. There is no one more powerful than You, and I am so privileged to have access to You – through the Holy Spirit – to guide my decision-making each day of my life. Help me to live a God-empowered way: guided and directed by You, rather than by my ever-changing feelings and circumstances. In Your name I pray, I Amen.

  1. Great words. I am plugged in and my Power Source is 100% relaible and trustworthy. Amen. I feel that people weigh Gods love and faithfulness to peoples. And therefore don’t get the magnitude of Him. I know I use to. It was hard for me to grasp that God could love me, warts and all. Then when it sunk in that God loves me, will love me forever, forgives and is there with me always, never going to bail on me. Wow, that was a life changing day. There is nothing I can’t do, with God. lol Sorry didn’t mean to go on and on. I loved the post 🙂

    1. As always, your comments are such a blessing to me! I think you. I can relate to you 100% about not fully grasping the height, depth, and width of God’s love for me. It’s still something that I struggle with from time to time, but I’m getting there – one day at a time. 🙂 It’s nice to know that you can empathize!

      1. It was for me. I’d read y Bible and think, I am so messed up, God can’t love me, there is no way. His love is for “good” people but when I read that verse, it was like a light bulb went off in my head and it truly changed my life.

      2. What a wonderful testimony you have! We covered a similar topic in my Bible study tonight. As humans, were so inclined to see what we need to do something or turn on God’s favor; we don’t actually need to do anything except believe and trust in Him. Why is something that is so simple is so difficult for us to accept and believe?

      3. hahahah I laugh because when I realized just what you have said, I called my mom and was all excited, hahaha and she laughed at me and said she was waiting for God to figure out a way to get it through to me. And now I ask the same question you did, why is something that simple so hard for us to get through our heads. I feel it’s because we see it through a “fleshy” point of view. Is impossible for it to be that easy, where’s the fine print, so to speak. But with man it isn’t possible but with God all things are possible.

      4. You are right about the “fine print” – that’s a great way of explaining how our fallen sin nature works. Even when God provides good things, I find myself looking for the fine print. However, with God there is none. He simply wants us to trust Him and believe. We want to make things more complicated than they actually are! This is my daily struggle, it seems.
