The Lord’s Power in Us
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.Ephesians 3:20
If we truly depend on the Lord we will live with his divine power. Power to be a light, bringing people to Christ by telling them the truth of the Word of God. The Lord gives us His power through our thoughts, our words, and our actions. And we have power over Satan and power over this evil world.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. (Ephesians 6:10) Faith is very important if we desire to live in the Lord’s power, because we need the Lord’s power to overcome the fear from Satan. Fear and complacency are two of Satan’s weapons that keep people from being a light for Christ. Satan knows our weakness and he tempts us at the right time in our weakest moment.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37) We will always have victory in Christ, because through Christ we can conquer anything, even our physical death. God’s power through Christ, with all things possible, means we can live in victory every day.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (Hebrews 11:6) To live in the Lord’s divine power we must have faith. We live to serve Christ and we seek His power in everything we do, because we do everything for the Lord.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. (Colossians 3:20) It’s important that whatever we do, we do it for the Lord, because we need to reflect Christ in everything we do. When we live in the Lord’s power and live to serve Christ, we overcome the world, and the Lord has major tasks for us. Living in the Lord’s power we are living to the maximum of our God given talents.
Today seek to live with the Lord’s power and pray for his divine power in all you do today. His desire is for you to live in His power and to be controlled by the Spirit and not by the evil world.
Prayer: Father, help me to live in your divine power as I live to serve Christ. And never let Satan stop me in anything I am doing for Christ. In Jesus name, Amen
