the power of God

Proverbs 20:24-27  NLT
The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?  Don’t trap yourself by making a rash promise to God and only later counting the cost.  A wise king scatters the wicked like wheat, then runs his threshing wheel over them.  The Lord’s light penetrates the human spirit, exposing every hidden motive.

Power is a difficult thing.  You may have heard that, “absolute power corrupts”, but real and rightly directed power can be an amazing thing.

I believe that God is the one who has absolute authority, yet what we find all over the world among humanity is the desire for some kind of power and a denial of God’s all-powerful truth.  He is able to do anything.

He is the creator.

He is the holder of life.

He is the giver of all blessings.

He is the one who loves each of us no matter what.

God directs our steps.  No matter the power we hold, or the power we think we hold.  It is God’s choice and His power that covers our lives.  Often when we finally acknowledge His great power there is a proverbial light that comes on.  His light penetrates everything.

Seek the power of God and humble yourself under His power on a daily basis.  His light and help will allow you and those around you to go farther and accomplish more.

1 Peter 5:6  NLT
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.
