Where is the power?
People say certain things when you finish praying for them. One of the comments I have heard people telling me in church: “may He continue using you with power.” I don’t see it that way. God is the one with power and He uses all who are submitted to His will. All I can see when acting in prayer is the need and the love of helping another soul find healing and love through God’s presence. Matthew 10:8 “Freely you received, freely give.” The power comes from the love you have for God and others. Jesus explained that the basic works of his kingdom on earth as it is in heaven is activated through faith, loving God above all else and our neighbor as much as we love ourselves. This means that to see the power of God you have to die to your self-love. Living in a selfie nation this is hard to process for any individual. This is the call to action that Jesus set before us more than 2000 years ago. We can see, we can live, we can act in “the power” of God through a sincere humble heart, helping, and loving each and every person that crosses our path.
Sincerity of the call to walk in godliness…
It’s a daily sacrifice to die to yourself indulgence. We live in a world that has taught us since we were very young to believe in praise for a job well done. The world has taught us to believe that we deserve a treat or instant gratification for a job well done. When in reality God called us to serve. God asks of you and me to be servants to others as Jesus did when he walk this earth only to bless, heal, free the oppressed, love the rejected, accept the unacceptable in each and every individual He met along his path. Jesus is our perfect example of what God expects of us. The charities all across the world represent all the people that have understood that we have a short time to live on this earth and we do not take any possessions with us the day we pass away. This is the reality of our humanity. Now when you realize who our Father is. What He offers through Jesus Christ our Lord and savior. You will understand that this earthly life is nothing compared to the glory set before Him. You can live in “power” on earth as it is in heaven but it does mean to work on loving God above all else and everyone else above yourself.
