Where does our power come from?


Question:

Where does our power come from?

Scripture:

2 Corinthians 4:5-7

Breakdown:

This scripture begins by talking about how we don’t go around preaching or talking to people about ourselves and the good things we do, but instead we talk about how Jesus is Lord and the source of all good things in our life. The reason this is important in keeping with this week’s theme “being a light for all to see” is because we must recognize we are not the light. The things we have, or the things we’ve done are not the light. No, God the creator of the universe is the light and He chooses to have an intimate, personal relationship with those who choose to seek him. This relationship allows God to shine His light through us and onto others. Since God is the light in our lives, our source, we must not forget where our power comes. The power to get up in the morning, go to school or work, to share our testimonies with others, the power to eat, sleep, and even breathe. Without God we are simply living life going through the motions, and without purpose. Without acknowledging the source of our strength and the good things in our life, we limit ourselves and the work the Lord can do through us. He shines through us and is giving us the power and strength to be the people He has called us to be and to accomplish His purpose for our lives.

Encouragement:

Ask yourself do I give God enough room in my life to control my life or do I make the decisions. God is so much bigger than we can imagine and there is nothing to big or too small he can’t help us with. Keep reading and seeking him daily!

God loves you, I love you. Thanks for stopping by!
