11. More than a conqueror

Last week we learned that we need to portray His light to a fallen world. This dark world is in desperate need of some light. This world needs to see His love, needs to feel that He cares. And He gives you all that you need to be able to shine His light. He provides in every instance. He wants us to be able to do His Will. He doesn't leave us stranded. He doesn't expect the impossible from us, but gives us the power and the strength to accomplish all that He lays before us. Let us look at a couple of Scriptures:

"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us." Romans 8:37

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

"For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man." Ephesians 3:14-16

Christ strengthens us. He lives within us in all His glory! He strengthens us with might. To Him be all the glory and the honour. What excuses can we possibly have? If we live in the fullness of all that we are in Him, we can do all that He requires of us. We can do much more than what we think we humanly can. Jesus is our Lord and Saviour, He is our King and He gave us everything that we need to conquer an evil world.

What is God currently asking you to do? If you cannot answer this question, be quiet somewhere during this week and ask God what He requires of you. Maybe He wants you to go and physically pray for someone that is sick. Maybe He wants you to share the Gospel with a colleague that does not believe. Maybe He wants you to move from where you are, either relocate or maybe even change occupation. Maybe He wants you to stop certain habits, maybe He wants you to work less hours, maybe He wants you to forgive someone, maybe He wants you to stop and make time for Him. Maybe He wants you to spend more time with your family. Only you will know what He expects of you.

I know some of these things can be very difficult and very inconvenient. Some of these things might clash with your personality. But know this; God strengthens you in the inner man. He provides abundantly in everything that you need. He will leave no stone unturned in order to help you.

I listen to teachings of Curry Blake and he often says that we must remember the Christian life is not about us. It is about expanding His Kingdom. It is about loving others. And the quicker we can get over 'us', the quicker God's Spirit can move and change our lives and the lives of others for the better. Let go and let God. Allow Him to move. He will remove the mountains out of your way and clear the skies. His power and might will flow through you. You simply need to take the first step. Come on, the time has come.

Father thank you for giving us all that we need. Thank you for all Your love and grace. Please help us to walk in Your ways and to step out when You tell us to. We love You. Amen
