You have the power! I have the power. In many ways we are like super heroes. That comment was meant for those who are active believers in Christ. Not only that he died for our sins. But that he is alive as our Lord and has the power to create miracles for us. Many people believe in God. Yet forget that he has divine power. But, he gave us divine power as well. A common misconception among people that believe in God, is that they need to pray for God to do everything for them. From the minor to the large.
God had given Moses a staff and told him that he placed his power in that staff. He did not have to pray to God to create miracles. The power was in his hands. He prayed to God for the wisdom to make the correct choices. In Exodus 14 verse 15 and 16. God had told Moses "Why do you call to me. Tell the people of Israel to March. Lift up your Rod and divide the Sea. You shall go through the Sea on dry ground. He had the power to do this. That is why God asked him, "why do you call to me." In the book of 1 Samuel. David fought Goliath. Chapter 17 verse 45 David tells Goliath. "You come against me with a sword, a spear and a shield, but I come to you in the name of the Lord. In verse 46 he goes on further to say "On this day the Lord shall deliver you unto me." Hollywood has movies about Indiana Jones. He looks for the Arch. In the scriptures, the Arch posses God's power. When the children of God went to war, they would bring this arch. It was a box that posses God's power inside. During War God would say open up the Arch and let me out.
Today now as Christians we have Christ. He lives in our Hearts and the Holy Spirit is on Earth inside of us and protecting us. Once you become a believer in Christ. The Holy Spirit labels you to the spiritual world as one of his. The scriptures say we would have all the power of Christ. The Mormons send out two people at a time to come to your door. Because Christ sent out the disciples two at a time. On one occasion Peter had returned and said to Jesus. How grand, we cast out the demons, simply by saying your name. My point. The power resides in you.
We go through situations and struggles in life. At times some are large and at times minor things. Or we know someone or something that we need to pray for. Prayer is needed when as a man or woman, we can further do no more. But have to trust in God. The mistake is we ask God to do these things and hope he does. We are to busy asking God to look down and come down. When God is already down in you and asking you..LET ME OUT!!! Just as the Arch. God asks LET ME OUT!! The power is within you. Use the Faith of David, when he fought Goliath and see that you will walk through the greatest adversity, on Dry grounds. As the Children of Israel did the Sea. God will divide and clear your path so you can make it through. But stop asking God to come down. You have the power to proclaim Victory. Let God Out!!!!
