Daily Bible Verse:              Luke 7:9

Turning to the crowd that was following Him, Jesus said, ‘I tell you, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel!’

- We are living in difficult times, and these times call for great faith.
- This is not a time for fear and distress.
- This is a time to trust God like never before.
- May you be one of those people who is known for having great faith!

Prayer: Lord, I reject all fear, anxiety, and despair, and I declare that I believe in You. I trust You in this season of my life. I choose faith, regardless of the storm or the flood that surrounds me. Amen.

EMPOWERED BY GOD

April 6, 2020

How often we live our lives in our own strength. We run around doing what 'seems good unto us' and in the process we get exhausted, tired, stressed, pressurized, weak, depressed and worn out.  I know a lady who carried so much with her. One day I spoke to her and asked her how she handled the weight of the burden she carried in life? She retorted by saying: 'I've got broad shoulders'.  Many of us have this 'broad-shoulder approach' and we are sure we can handle whatever comes our way.  This is great, until one day, when things just get too much and we need help.  It is then that we discover that we need God and His strength in our lives.  The Bible tells us that we are 'earthen vessels'. This means that we are not as strong as we think we are and we need God more that we realize.

QUOTATION - I heard someone make the following statement: 'Everything we do in our own strengthen wears us down, everything we do through God's strength enables (encourages, strengthens, builds us up) us!' 

DEFINITION: Power - is the capacity to effect (do) something!

THE POWER OF GOD IS AVAILABLE TO US
Romans 8:11 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you. 
With God, we have the capacity, ability, endurance and perseverance to be able to really have an effect.  This verse tells us that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead can live within us.  In addition this power that is available to us will come and restore to life our physical bodies.  When this happens everything changes.  We are no longer the same.  Our lives and the way we live our lives changes.  We are no longer running on our own strength.  We can switch over to His power in our lives.
