Excerpt from Storms of Life, God's Power: Red

 Storms of Life  Chapter 6, Day 3:
"Cling to this unshakable truth: Your Father God is mighty in power and in control of every moment; nothing is beyond His might."

Storms of Life  Chapter 8, Day 2: 
"Infinite power. Unimaginable power. All at our fingertips. But God often chooses to apply His great power to our hearts rather than to our circumstances. His power heals doubts. His power overcomes fear. God is more powerful than any situation we face.
It is His power that carries us through. Is there a specific situation in your life you’re afraid is beyond God’s power to overcome? Do you think your sorrow, doubt, or fear are beyond God’s power to heal? Stand on the truth of His promises and declare your faith in the greatness of God’s power in your situation."

We nod our heads when the preacher talks about the greatness of God’s power. We proclaim His power in the songs we sing. But, when life falls apart, we think, “Where’s all that power when we need it?”

 “And his [God’s] incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead.” (Ephesians 1:19, 20a)

The great power that raised Jesus from the grave is available to us!

So where is it when we are overcome by fear, sorrow?

Jesus asked the same question:

                        I don’t want to do this, Father!
                        Do I have to walk through this?

The same power that raised Christ from the dead strengthened Him in the Garden.

The same power upheld Him as He endured the agony of scourging and crucifixion.

The same power gave Him the ability to resist calling twelve legions of angels.

We call upon God’s power for deliverance, as well we should. But we also need to call upon it to carry us as we step through a crisis. Our Father’s power was great enough to bring Christ through His unbelievable pain and it's great enough to bring us through the hardship that faces us.

Indescribable, unimaginable! Allow God to uphold you with His Power.

When has God's Power sustained you in a difficult time?

    1. You are so super-sweet! I've always loved red but mostly because it's Oklahoma University's color :)
      I agree, His power is so amazing and, even more amazing, He makes it available to us.
