“That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” 1 Corinthians 2:5 KJV
Oh the power of faith! I’m currently reading the book “The unlimited power of Faith” by David O. Oyedepo and I must say it is transforming my level of faith. Faith is one of the most powerful tools we have as Christians.
As followers of Christ, it is so important the we tap into the various levels of faith. We say we have faith and believe in Jesus, but do we believe in the power that we carry? It’s one thing to believe that Jesus exists but do we understand the power and authority that we have through Jesus Christ?
If you think being a Christian is just going to church and reading your Bible then you aren’t enjoying your Christian walk to the fullest.
Being a Christian and a child of God means that we carry power and authority. We have a Heavenly Father who has given us authority to live above the standards. We have the authority to command things into our possessions.
You have the power to cure that headache or sickness in the name of Jesus. What I’m saying may sound foreign to you, unless you understand things of the spirit. However, I want you to pray and ask God to speak to you and bring you clarity on this topic.
God has placed us on this earth for a reason. While we are here, He has equipped us with the right tools to accomplish that goal – God would never leave us hanging. However, a lot of us don’t know how to use the tools or don’t know that the tools are available. I’m here to tell you that you are more powerful than you think. Society can tell you that in order to be successful you need to have this degree or climb up the corporate ladder.
Society will tell you the only way to cure a certain sickness is through medication. Society will fill your mind with all kinds of things to take away from God’s power. I’m here to tell you that you can accomplish great success and be healthy through Jesus Christ. We shouldn’t rely more on what mere humans tell us than what God says.
You have to truly believe with all your heart that it will work. Some of you may be thinking “well I’ve tried praying and doing all of that but it didn’t work”. The Bible reminds us in Mark 11:23 “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart [in God’s unlimited power], but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him [in accordance with God’s will]“. AMP
You cannot have any doubt in your mind about Gods infinite power; that’s what the devil wants you to do. He wants you to believe that all those spiritual things are “not real” or that in order to be healed a pastor needs to pray for you. News flash, you have the same amount of power as the pastor. Being a pastor requires a special amount of grace and anointing but as for power, it is available to all of us. The pastor has just dedicated time to seeking after it. We can do it as well, the Bible clearly states in John 14:12 “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father AMP. Jesus commanded us greater works that He did we will do. If Jesus is telling us that we shall do greater works why aren’t we?
As Christians we need to spend more time on our Heavenly Kingdom than this earth. Start sowing seeds for heaven, that means start living your life with the mindset that everything here is temporary. I’m not saying you shouldn’t work hard but you shouldn’t be so consumed with the now. God wants us to have so much more than just temporary things.
We are destined to have so much more in this life and the life to come. We must learn to submit to Gods perfect will and spend more time with Him. Get to know God on a deeper level. Just like in a new relationship, you can spend hours getting to know the person; spend that same amount of time getting to know God. He will reveal to you the gifts and powers He has given you. Spend time reading His word and you will find that there is so much more to this life. I want us all to unleash the power of faith and start believing that we have the authority through Jesus Christ to reach another level in our Faith.
I want to challenge you, the next time you hear something that doesn’t sit well with you, believe and say ” I command this situation to change in the name of Jesus, I don’t care how it is going to happen but I serve a Mighty and Big God and this situation cannot and will not stay”. Believe that if is God’s will for a change that it will happen. Let’s become strong Christians who know who we are and walk in that confidence!
I pray that this post will challenge you to switch gears in your faith and may you walk in your divine purpose. I know trying to unleash the Power of Faith can be hard and bit a challenge but we can do all things through Christ.
Stay Blessed and Go out there and Be Great!
