THE POWER WITHIN YOU

This is one of the many problems I see in the church today- instead of bringing glory to the Lord, people seek to bring glory to themselves and their talents. Instead of seeking God’s will in their lives, they place their own personal desires above what the Lord would have them to be doing. So many people who profess to be Christian never honestly seek the Lord at all because if they did then they would start losing friends and be persecuted. God sacrificed His Son for us, but so few people who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ are not willing to lay down anything that will cost them great sacrifice. -Admin-

God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty. 1 Corinthians 1:27 (NKJV)

God has equipped you for every good work. The presence of the Holy Spirit is His guarantee that no matter what you face, He is committed to providing the power and strength you need to accomplish the task, get through the hurt, and end up victorious in Him.

D. L. Moody had only a fifth-grade education, but he became one of the greatest evangelists of our time. He was never ordained to the ministry, yet God used him to lead thousands to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. The book More Than Conquerors tells us that “the evangelist spoke to at least 1.5 million in London during four months in 1875, long before radio and television.”

God chooses the weak things to shame those who think they are strong (1 Corinthians 1:27-29). There is only one way God can be glorified in your life, and that is through your willingness to lay aside your ability, talent, and personal desires in order to follow Him in obedience. Sacrifice and submission lead to a life of tremendous hope, freedom, and eternal joy.
