The blessing of God is power. This power is a gift for us to use, among other things, for the healing of our souls, to create wealth, and anyone wanting restoration must have access to it.
God wants you to know the “exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe” (Ephesians 1:19), so He can “He would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.” (Ephesians 3:16).
You can’t pay for God’s power; you can only receive it from Him by faith. Oswald Chambers says that God’s purpose for me is “that I depend on Him and His power now.” By depending on God’s power instead of your own, you are fulfilling God’s purpose for your life.
If you feel powerless and weak in the face of your circumstances, then thank God that even though you are weak, He is not. His word says, “My strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Just as Jesus was crucified in weakness and lives in all power now, the same is true for us if we come to Him in weakness. Our power comes from the Holy Spirit working in us. Jesus told His disciples, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.” (Acts 1:8)
We are always in need of a fresh flow of the Holy Spirit. Today ask for a fresh outpouring of God’s power.
This morning, I want you to say, “Father God, I need a fresh flow of Your Holy Spirit power working in me this day. I am weak, but You are all-powerful. Be strong in me this day.” This is a power-full prayer of blessing.
