You have been given power.
And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of diseases.
Because we are children and disciples of Jesus, we have been given power and authority. We are no longer the victims, but rather we are the victors. We are no longer the oppressed because we have power over the oppressor. We are no longer prisoners to sin but rather we are set free. For whom the son sets free is free indeed ( John 8:36).
The power to overcome, the power to stand in the midst of difficulties has been given to you because you are His disciple.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
In order to know the authority we have, we must know the authority we sit under. And we sit under the authority of Jesus, the king of Kings and the Lord of Lords. The Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. The authority we have as disciples and children of God surpasses every other authority. We must stand firm in our authority. We must reach deep within our souls and understand that we have the power to resist temptation through Christ who strengthens us. We must reach deep within our hearts and know that we have the power to overcome trials and tribulations through Christ who strengthens us.
Because His Power is made perfect in our weakness ( 2 corinthians 12:9) , we must understand that even what looks difficult in our eyes is small in His eyes. So we must now see from His perspective, as we are His disciples.
Jesus has given us power over every other spirit. You didn’t give yourself the power, He did. He gave the power to the disciples after He called them. Me and you have been called out of darkness into His marvellous light,therefore we have been given the power. We have been given power over unclean spirits, To cast them out, to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of diseases.
Jesus gave the disciples power as a result of them choosing to follow Him. Since you and I have chosen to follow Jesus, we have been given power over every force or opposition we face. Therefore we must not doubt whether we can do what He has called us to do. Because Its the power of God that will enable us to do what He has called us to do. We mustn’t doubt whether we can overcome a problem because Its His power that will lead us to victory. If it was our very own strength then we can question. But we can do all things through who? Through christ who strengthens us. Our eyes must be fixed on Him, our hearts and our hope should be in Him. Not on ourselves or what we don’t have.
He has given you power to overcome. The storm may be brutal but you will make it through to the other side, because of the power He has placed in you. The power in you is much much greater than the look of that storm. Because you are in partnership with Christ, you have hope and you have power. Amen
For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.Amen
Because He who promised is faithful.
God Loves You
