Standing in the Power of God
“That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”
1 Corinthians 2:5
There are many people out there today that are standing or boasting in their human powers or satanic and diabolical powers. But power pass power, as we say in Nigeria! The power of God is superior to all other powers. Be it witchcraft powers! Be it occultic powers! Be it human powers!
What is the power of God?
The power of God is about the ability, capacity and authority of God. Unlike man who has power in levels or grades, God’s power is never in levels.
God is excellent in power! The Bible says, “Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.”
One remarkable reason why we are to stand in the power of God is because only God has the ability to keep or redeem our souls from the power of the grave. Only God has the capacity to keep us alive! The Bible tells us that no man has power over the spirit to retain the spirit or power in the day of death. (Ecclesiastes 8:8)
Only God has the power to preserve those that are appointed to die. The Bible says, “Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die;”
3 reasons why we must stand in the power of God:
1. God made the earth, man and animals by His power.
“I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.”
The power that made the earth or man is worthy to be trusted. This power is dependable! This power can make you great! The Bible says, “Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
1 Chronicles 29:12
2. God gives His power to the faint or weak.
“He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.”
Are you weak and tired of life?
Are you weak in your body?
Whatever area you are weak at, only God can empower you with strength. Try Him today!
3. Enemies submit by the power of God.
“Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.”
I don’t care about the number of enemies buffetting and harassing your life or destiny! What I care about is the power of God at work in your life to shatter and scatter all your enemies! With resolute faith in the power of God, all your enemies will bow before you. Do you believe this truth? If you do, you will surely see the manifestation of His power in your life!
I decree and declare that you will always stand in the power of God by faith in Jesus mighty name.
