HIS REDEMPTIVE POWER
This morning I read: "THE POWER WITHIN YOU IS GREATER THAN THE STRUGGLE AROUND YOU." This statement we should all absorb into our souls as long as we walk this earth.
GOD'S power within us is greater than we can imagine.... HIS Holy Spirit comes upon us, only when we ask and trust this Helper sent to us by GOD.
A dear sweet friend of mine (Mary, you know who you are!) and I were chatting recently about those powerful GOD moments, and how prayer helps one to "see" GOD around you and to realize that HE is very tangible when you seek HIM and pray and believe.
PSALM 105: 4 says " Seek the LORD and HIS strength; seek HIS presence continually." The power within you will help you see HIM!
CHRIST said in John 15 that the Helper would come.... that HE would send Him, a wonderful Spirit of truth. If you believe in CHRIST, you believe HIS WORD is truth. You must then believe that the powerful HOLY SPIRIT resides within you.
Ephesians 3:16 says: ".... that according to the riches of HIS glory HE may grant you to be strengthened with POWER through HIS Spirit in your inner being."
We all then, have the power to ask and receive HIS Holy Spirit to help us deal with anything that comes across our paths no matter how difficult.... it is HIS Power.... HIS Holy Spirit.... HIS redemptive Grace for us! Let us all thank HIM for this wonderful gift!
ACTS; 1:8 "But you will receive power when the HOLY SPIRIT comes upon you."
