DAY 18 FRIDAY: SEPTEMBER 2020

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF GOD’S POWER WITHIN YOU!

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:13).

The Bible recorded that we were created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26); therefore, the divinity of God is in you through Christ Jesus as a Christian in life. That is the reason why a Christian should never underrate the power of God in his life, but rather he should take advantage of God’s power within him. The Bible says in the opening text that for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to take advantage of His power in his life. The power of God in a Christian’s life is also the glory of God in his life forever.

A Christian is expected to take note of the fact that the power of God that is within him is working mightily in his life. God is ever ready to perfect what He had begun in your life because you are His divine project in life (Philippians 1:6). That is why the Bible says in Colossians 1:29, “To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.” Therefore, a Christian should strive as much as possible to allow the Holy Spirit to work in him mightily both in life and ministry. God is working in your life mightily and divinely. Hence, the Omnipotent power of God is absolutely more than able to perfect God’s will and purpose in a Christian’s life and ministry forever.

Apostle Paul was fully conscious of this divine revelation that prompted him to say confidently in Philippians 4:13 thus, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Take note of the fact that Apostle Paul did not say, “I can do some, many or much things but rather all things. This shows that in Christ Jesus there is no limitation or barrier to your achievement in life if only you could believe by faith. In fact, a Christian should endeavor to give room for the Holy Spirit to perfect the work of God in his life and ministry. A life that is guided by the Holy Spirit is a life that cannot be limited by impossibilities forever.

Daily Tip: God has given every Christian limitless breakthroughs and achievements in life; therefore, give no room to impossibility and barrier forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us (Ephesians 3:10).
