"Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; His understanding is beyond measure." Psalm 147:5 (ESV)
BY TERESA GEORGE
Do you ever feel powerless when facing the circumstances of your life? At times do you find yourself doubting that even God Himself has the power to pull you from the darkness?
If you find yourself doubting the power of God, look outside and see the beautiful world He created. It was all brought into existence with His words.
If you find yourself doubting the power of God, consider His infinite knowledge and wisdom as revealed in the Word. The Bible gives us many pictures of His power, from the parting of the Red Sea to leading the Israelites into the Promised Land.
If you find yourself doubting the power of God, remember the One who is able to redeem a lost soul, the One whose power resurrected His Son from death on the cross in order to free us from slavery and eternal judgment.
Though God’s power is strong and mighty, it is also tender and personal. If you, like me, have trials and burdens in your daily life, dear sister, consider that the power of God is on your side and take courage.
When I am discouraged and fearful that a loved one will never meet Christ personally, I remember the power that transformed Paul, the chief of all sinners, into a champion for the kingdom of Christ.
When I am fearful of the direction my culture is headed, I remember His power is mightier than any government. I know that He has the ultimate victory and in His power I find hope.
When I am tempted to follow the crowd and stain my Christian testimony, I have confidence that the power of my temptations are incomparable to the power of my Almighty God.
Some of my worst decisions have been made looking at my own ability and power, resulting in lifelong consequences. In our community of women at the Gathering, let’s encourage each other to trust in the knowledge, wisdom, and power of God to lead us through this complicated world.
