Each day we struggle and we try to hold on, trying with all our might to maintain some balance of life in the crazy world in which we live. But then at the end of the day we look back and realize we failed . . . we simply stood powerless in the overwhelming struggles of life. However, the good news is that we don’t have to stand in our own power. . . “Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (I Peter 1:5)” It is through the “power of God” that we are saved and kept in His hand; no one can remove us from the power of His grasp. Not only do we have salvation through His power, but we have the ability to live in the “power of God” once we have been saved. We are not complete within ourselves, we simply do not possess the power or strength to stand alone in this world. Unable to save ourselves we are also unable to overcome the pressures and struggles of life, but in Him all power is given unto us.
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19) God knows each thing we will face during the course of each day, it comes as no surprise to Him. He knew about it from the beginning of time and has set in place all that is necessary to enable us to overcome whatever the day may bring our way. It is when we fail to recognize the power He offers us that we find ourselves falling flat on our face beneath the weight of the day. Each time we attempt to take life on within our own power we fail. Once we fully comprehend what He has already bestowed upon us and claim His promise then and only then will we possess the power to triumph over whatever comes our way.
In Him, we possess the “power” to live in a troubled world . . . and one day this power will be revealed within us in the last day!!!
