God Is Waiting On Us!
God's power that raised Jesus is inside all His people. He's given it to us; we
have to utilise it for His glory!
God has put inside all born-again Christians the same power that he used when He
raised Jesus from the dead! The problem is that Christians have been deceived by
Satan into thinking that they are powerless.
Ephesians 1:15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your
faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 I have not
stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep
asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you
the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order
that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his
glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and his incomparably great power
for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,
20 which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated
him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule
and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only
in the present age but also in the one to come.
Christians will tell you
that they are worms and that without Jesus they can do nothing. Well of themselves
that is certainly true, but we are never without Jesus and He has given us the
Holy Spirit to live in us and we should be operating in His power.
When Peter and John came across a crippled man before the Temple after the
resurrection of Jesus, and he wanted alms this is what Peter said...
Acts 3:5 And he (the crippled man) fixed his attention on
them, expecting to receive something from them.6 But Peter said, "I have no
silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of
Nazareth, rise up and walk!" 7 and he took him by the right hand and raised
him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 8 and leaping
up he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and
leaping and praising God.
Notice that Peter said "What I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ
of Nazareth, rise up and walk!"
He had it. He passed it on. He did it by the authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Of course the power is not natural to his human (carnal) ability, but HE had
the power or anointing to give. He didn't plead and beg for God to heal the man like
many Christians do today but we can see from the scriptures the fruit that resulted.
God has already given us all things; Spiritual, Physical, Blessings, Prosperity,
Deliverance, etc. We have to access it all and bring it from the spiritual store in
our spirit into the physical realm. If you don't bring it out it will stay there.
No problem! But don't blame God, or say He hasn't done anything in His sovereign
will, when He's given it all to you and it's up to you to use the keys to access
all His blessings.
Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was
crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace
(shalom), and with his stripes we are healed.
God's grace has been given to all men. We have to use faith to access it.
We are not waiting for God to act - He's waiting for us!
Best wishes for Grace and the Peace of Jesus.
