DAY 17 SUNDAY: MAY 2020

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO EFFECT A CHANGE!

And the Lord said to him, “Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man (Judges 6:16).

Every Christian had received the power to effect a change in his time and generation in life. You should never fold your hands to live a life of limitation and frustration in life. The power to effect a change is in you; therefore, arise to take the bull by the horn in life. The Bible says in the opening text that the Lord said to him, “Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man.” Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God has indeed given him the power to effect a change in his life. It is high time every Christian should know the fact that God is with him and He has deposited within him the potentials to overcome and remain victorious in life forever.

In the time of Gideon, the Israelites were living the life of fear and bondage. The Midianites became their slave’s masters and tormented them severely in life. But thank God for Gideon who made himself available for a change in life. Until you learn to make yourself available, God can never use you in life. That is why the Bible says in Acts 1:8, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…” Therefore, the Holy Spirit of God enables a Christian with divine powers to effect a change in his life effortlessly. The power to overcome and remain victorious eternally had been deposited in a Christian’s life by the Spirit of God forever.

The Bible made it clear to us that there is a greater power in you that can effect a change in your time and generation in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 John 4:4, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” In fact, the Spirit of God in the life of a Christian is far greater than the devil and his cohorts that rule the world in life. A Christian should never for any reason despise himself nor give room for Satan to cage his destiny in life. You are indeed great to effect a great change in your life eternally. Therefore, every Christian should take note of the fact that there is of course greater power in him by the auction of the Holy Spirit than the forces of darkness and Satan that rule the world in life forever.

Daily Tip: God expects you to arise and effect a change in your time and generation through the power and auction of the Holy Spirit in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:14).
