Have You Forgotten How Powerful God Is?

| 4 Comments

Have you forgotten how powerful God isHow are you doing? Are you tired of everything? Exhausted or desperate? Guess what, life is not on your shoulders. This is not all there is. You don’t have to manage your life on your own. Help is available. For real. Have you forgotten how powerful God is? Or maybe you don’t really believe that God is active and alive. But he is. And there’s a lot he has to offer for all who believe. Not just when you’re wearing your Sunday best but on weekdays when everything seems to be going wrong.

God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable],
A very present and well-proved help in trouble.
(Ps. 46:10, AMP, emphasis added)

Have you forgotten how powerful God is?

Usually, when we feel down, everything supposedly spiritually uplifting seems to be the last thing we want to do. But this is how the enemy works. He wants us to get so busy and seemingly self-sufficient that we forget our need of Christ. We start skipping taking care of our spiritual needs and we start – without realizing it – drifting away from God. Soon our spiritual eyes dim and we don’t see the glory of God anymore. We forgot how powerful God is. Soon we start feeling exhausted and restless, our life seems to be lacking meaning and purpose. What to do then?

And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints (God’s people), and [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. (Eph. 1:18-19, AMP, emphasis added)

How to experience the power of God

Whenever you’re feeling down for some reason, turn to God. If you don’t have any desire to seek God, ask God to rekindle that desire in you. God hears your prayers and answers to you. For real.

This amazes me over and over again. Every time I earnestly seek God, he answers. Try it yourself! Experience the power of God in your everyday life. Not – necessarily – in showy ways but in tangible small ways.

Faith is simple.
But it works.
Prayer is simple.
But it works.

God is more powerful than you know. You just need to let God show you. Your problems are nothing to God. Surrender them and yourself to God and let him sort your life out. He loves to do that. It’s impossible for you but it’s easy for him. Let our Heavenly Father show you how wonderful it is to be his child.

 

Gracious God,
Forgive us for drifting away from your Word
and for forgetting how powerful you are.
We surrender ourselves and our problems to you.
Help us, Lord! Sort us out.
Show us your glory,
let us experience your power.
In Jesus’ precious name,
Amen

    Thank you so much for ” We start skipping taking care of our spiritual needs and we start – without realizing it – drifting away from God. Soon our spiritual eyes dim and we don’t see the glory of God anymore.”

    • You’re welcome. It’s ‘slow fade’ like Casting Crowns sings about it. Thanks for visiting and commenting. Blessings to you!

  • I usually forget how powerful God is when I think I can do stuff on my own. My plans usually backfire or don’t do well, and I’m back to remembering that God is in control and if I follow his will, I don’t have to fear the outcome!

    • Yes! And why we do this over and over again? *sigh* May God enable us to keep our eyes fixed on him and not on our problems! Thanks so much, Anita! God bless you!
