Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4
When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases. Luke 9:1
At some point in our lives, we will encounter times of adversities and challenging circumstances which in turn make us feel powerless. However, if you have accepted God as your personal saviour, he is right there by your side for he said he will never leave you nor forsake you. Furthermore, his spirit dwells within you and the word said greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. There is no power that is greater than God’s power so activate it so that you can stop feeling powerless.
Why do You feel Powerless?
You may feel powerless as a result of many factors. Some of you may have lost a young child by death and perhaps your only child and you feel so powerless. Some of you may have gone through a divorce and your spouse was the breadwinner and now he or she left so you feel powerless. Some of you or some of your children may have encounter some illnesses and you feel like you cannot do anything about it so you feel powerless. Some of you do not have any money and you feel powerless. Being intimidated and controlled by others will make you feel powerless. Some of you may be suffering from low self-esteem, depression and mental issues and so you feel powerless. Some of you feel powerless because you want to make a change but you feel you are not in a position of authority to make that change. Some of you want to say or do something but you are not from here and you feel your contribution will not be accepted and so you feel powerless. Some of you hear that folks are working voodoo or witchcraft on you and you are afraid and feel powerless.
Activate the Power of God and Use it
You do not have to feel powerless. God will direct you and guide you while you go through these difficult situations. 1 John 4:4 states that “Ye are of God little Children and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.
In order to activate the power of God, pray and God will give you power to overcome the obstacles in your life. Talk to God. He knows what you are facing but still tell him. Ask and it shall be given, seek and ye shall find it and knock and the door will be opened to you.
After you finishing praying, have faith in God’s power. 1 Corinthians 2:5 states “so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power. If you have faith in God’s power, you can overcome the situations in your life. Stop putting your faith in the hands of men and women that you think are powerful.
There is power in the word of God. Read and study your Bible and speak to your situations with scriptures from the word of God. The word says in Romans 4:17 call those things which be not as though they were. Remember the power of life and death is in the tongue.
Another way to activate the power of God is through fasting. There are some situations in life that require you to fast in order to activate the power of God. Fasting will bring you closer to God and get rid of your fleshy desires. When you get rid of fleshy desires, your spiritual realm is activated giving you power to overcome the obstacles.
Finally, God has given you authority. Take it and use the power that is within you. Do not have any fear or doubt. Use that great power and see how powerful you are as a child of God.
As long as we live on this earth, we will face some unpleasant issues. The enemy will try to destroy you and you will feel powerless. After all, the enemy came to kill, steal and destroy. The enemy has power but his power is insignificant compared to the greatest power dwelling within you which is the power of God. The enemy cannot destroy the power of God. Remember God has given you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. If you are a child of God, you are not powerless for you are so powerful. Stop feeling powerless.
