On Sunday we discussed the power of Jesus. God has given us the power to change the world. Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Before we can change the world we must first allow God to change us. How has the Gospel of Jesus’ power to reveal, revive, redirect, rev up, and reward affected you? In your quiet time read each of the scriptures and decide where you see God’s power showing up in your life. Then pray and ask God to provide power in the area where you need it most.
Power to Reveal
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
Power to Revive- encourage build up
Psalm 3:3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
Power to Redirect- Try again
Proverbs 24:16 for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again,
Power to Rev Up- encourage
Deut. 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Power to reward
Gal 6:9 says Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
