God’s Word empowers us for living! Empowering is an awesome term. The power within a person is what guides and sustains them in their life efforts. It gives a person courage for success and rewards of a better life.
Fear should not be the authority for decision making. Notice the terms used in God’s word: spirit of wisdom and revelation, hope, enlightenment, mighty power, and dominion. The Apostle Paul says it is far above what we have in this age. Read the scriptures below and get an idea how God can raise you up for a good life.
Ephesians 1:17-21 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
A policeman directing traffic raises his hand and 10,000 pound vehicles stop. It is not the policeman’s power personally; it is the authority of the city’s power. He has been given power; however it is a power of authority. God has given you power over the devil and all his forces and they have to obey that power.
Luke 10:18-20 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
The church of Jesus Christ must realize that we have this power. It is not in our own great power because we are empowered through Jesus Christ. Sometimes we don’t feel powerful, but it is in the Spirit within us from the Lord that makes us powerful.
God’s Word is powerful. When God created mankind, he gave them authority over everything.
Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
When we make important decisions for our life, we must remember the power within and consider the outcome of our decisions.
Just think of David and how he defeated Goliath. He said that the God who delivered him from the lion and the bear will deliver him from Goliath. That is exactly what happened.
The power is in the Word of God. It is not just describing what it could do, but is saying that God anointed His Word for the believer. So that the believer would have success in every area of life.
