GOD IS THE ULTIMATE SOURCE OF ALL POWER (STRENGTH)

April 13, 2020

GOD IS THE ULTIMATE SOURCE OF ALL POWER (STRENGTH)
Ephesians 1:19 -20 And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places].
In a sense we have to come to the end of ourselves, to the point where we realize that we need God totally.  At this point we get to a place of 'desperate dependence' as opposed to 'partial dependence'.  When we live our lives without this 'desperate dependence' we live life standing on a banana peel, ready to slip when the next hurdle comes our way.  Often we look everywhere but to God for our strength.  We will look to others, to our ability and skill, to our qualification and career, to our finances and resources, to our beauty or strength when we need to be looking to God.  All these other things have the capacity to let us down - they are not sure things.  But God and His power is what we can completely depend on.  Don't look to other places for your strength and happiness, look to God and find your peace in Him.

WE HAVE NO POWER APART FROM GOD! 
There is a song: 'I HAVE NO POWER OF MY OWN'.
John 15:5 I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.
We have to stay vitally connected to God.  Our strength flows from God as we remain connected to Him.  If we cut ourselves off we will last for a while, but ultimately we will run out of strength.  Often when people face difficulty they get disappointed with God and become disillusioned and turn to their own ways.  We must learn to hold onto God and realize we need Him and His power in our lives to bring us out on top. (See quicksand story above)
