Promised Power

At church last night my teacher gave an analogy that I had to share with you.  Imagine going to a bank where they opened up the vault and said you could have all the money you want, you just have to take it.  It wouldn’t make sense to take only a dollar and then complain that the bank was not good to you or that your financial situation is so bad.  Just think, this is what God does for us.  He fills His Word with His promises and invites us to take Him up on them.  We should claim those promises!  Sometimes we take a few here or there, but we are not living in the power of the promises God gives us.  Jesus says in Acts 1:7 you will have power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be His witnesses.  He tells His disciples not to worry about what they will say because the Holy Spirit will speak for them.  Today, claim the promise of His power.  Know that you can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you because He says so.
