8. You have God's power within

Last week we saw in Scripture that we have the life of Christ pulsating through our veins. We are truly alive, our heart is not just beating, we have supernatural life invigorating us from within. God's life giving us health, joy, peace, energy and so I can go on. Everything that we need. And also we have the power of God working within us. The Scriptures are quite clear about that:

"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in heavenly realms." Ephesians 1:18-20

"We are also weak in Him, but we shall live with Him by the power of God." 2 Corinthians 13:4

"...His power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness." 2 Peter 1:3

We have the same power that raised Jesus from the dead within. Do you realise the significance of this statement? I think if we really sit and think about it we will be in awe. We will really be amazed by the mighty power at work within us. But why is it then that we do not experience it? Why don't we see that power manifested?

Well the main reason is because we don't generally believe it. We might hear it, and we might even try to believe it, but we have been bombarded by doctrine throughout our lives basically saying that we are blaspheming if we say such things. I can just imagine what a conservative church in the 1950's might have said if you told them that you have God's power. They might have even tried to stone you. They might have banned you out of the church. And this mentality has gone underground and is still with us today.

We need to stand up in all that we are. Scripture tells us that all of creation is waiting for the sons of God to be manifested. For the sons of God to stand up and start to claim and do what is rightfully theirs. We need to start doing what is true of us in the spirit. For example Donald Trump was elected President of America in November 2016, but he could only start to act out his presidency from 20 January 2017. Before that he couldn't. We on the other hand have been 'inaugurated' as sons of God, but in contrast to Donald we don't act like it. We are in a position of authority and power and yet we don't use it and the devil is laughing all the way. I know I am speaking harshly and right to the point, but I just feel the urgency that we need to stand up as the sons that we are. We have the power; we need to start using it.

Claim God's power over your situation, stand up for what is right and do the right thing when the temptation comes your way. Come on, you have a whole host of witnesses cheering you on. The time has come, the time is now.

Thank you Father for not leaving us helpless here on earth. Thank you for giving us the power to stand up and change our situations, to be all that You created us to be. We want to make You proud of us. Amen
