What is the purpose of God’s power? The sole purpose of God’s power is for His own purpose and nothing else. It is not here for man’s will but God’s will; it is not available for man’s pleasure but for God’s pleasure. However, any believer in Christ can and should avail themselves to this immeasurable power of God in order to do all that he knows is the pleasure and will of God.
Colossians 1:9-11 tells us that the mighty power of God, the same power that raised Christ from the dead, is available right now to strengthen us who believe to accomplish all that lies in God’s purpose for our life. We can do all that God wants for us to do and have been called to do, no matter what that may be, according to God’s mighty power.
This power can demonstrated in many ways through our lives and as we read in Hebrews 11:32-37 it is a power that not only brings miracles and release but also peace and comfort in the midst of suffering and persecution. We often think of this power outworking in a miracle, but sometimes it may not be a miracle of release but a miracle in allowing us to suffer for Christ with great joy (James 1:2-4)
This week, not matter what it is that you are relying on God’s power for, do not be disheartened or discouraged if a miracle of release doesn’t occur because maybe God is teaching you about patience, endurance and peace in the midst of your situation. Remember, God is always with you no matter the situation (Hebrews 13:5)
Have a ‘God’ day
