IN THE LIVING LIFE LESSONS COLUMN EACH MONTH I AM SHARING LESSONS GOD HAS TAUGHT ME these last several years. Today Let’s talk about the Power of God that is available to us…
One of the many mysteries of God is that when we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior the Holy Spirit comes to live within us. Not only that, the power that raised Christ from the grave is available to us as well, actually working within us.
That is a mind boggling concept!
According to Scripture God is able to carry out His purpose and do supernatural things in our lives as a because His power is working in us.
Good things come as a consequence of God’s power working… in me. In you.
So maybe the good things aren’t coming because I’m preventing God from working in me?
How can we stop God’s power from working?
The Bible tells us that we make the Holy Spirit sad by our behavior, when we carry bitterness and anger, use harsh words or hurt others.
If we want God’s power to be working in and through our lives we must be intentional about our words and actions; being careful to build others up, speaking words that are beneficial not polluting.
God is able to do much more than we ask or think through His power working in us. May we see His shining-greatness in the church. May all people in all time honor Christ Jesus. Let it be so. ~ Ephesians 3:20-21 (New Life Version)
