“Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.” – Matthew 6:10
Once we’ve entered His courts with praise, it’s a natural progression to begin giving thanks. The first thing to thank God for, and acknowledge, is His POWER (our 2nd P). By thanking Him for this power we acknowledge His power over our lives, and we receive His power in our lives to deal with every circumstance we may be facing. As humans God’s power is not just shown through creation (Romans 1:19-20) but is actually revealed each and every time a believer receives salvation and then lives a life that honors God.
You see, God’s power saves us (Romans 1:16) but it’s also what gives us the ability to live for Him (Philippians 2:13). Apart from God’s power, we can do nothing. As humans we are not able to stand up against the evil nature of our hearts (Mark 7:21-23) but with the Holy Spirit we are more than conquerors (Romans 8:11).
Do you get it? Can you feel it? God lives IN YOU, which means He has given you access to his power. Whoa, double check…This power is the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, I think it’s powerful enough to handle ANYTHING you are facing right now.
In prayer we need to praise God for His unlimited power, thank Him for His power to save us from our sins, and receive His power to make us holy and live a life that honors Him! All you need to do is have faith and watch as God’s power changes your life!!!
