unlimited Power of God (Morning)
2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
In 2016 Eddie Hall tried to break the world heavyweight lifter. He tried to deadlift 500 kg to break the previous record of 463 kg. He succeeded, but at a great cost. Moments after he broke the record, he had a nosebleed, his vision blurred, and blood came out from his tear ducks and ears. Just four years after his incident, an Icelandic deadlifter Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, known professionally as The Thor, broke his record, deadlifting 501 kg. Thor’s record remains unbroken to this day.
Eddie Hall may unsuccessfully reclaim his title but this doesn’t mean he has nothing left to share with us. He tells us how limited our power is, how insignificant our might is. No matter how hard we try, if we depend on our might it is futile. But at least he didn’t end up like Zimri, a general and was the fifth king of Israel. He planned a coup d’etat and killed his predecessor, King Elah. However, his coup ended in tragedy, when the Israelites’ army refused to acknowledge him as their leader. The army appointed Omri as their leader and new commander, when Zimri heard about this and knew too late that his rival’s army had surrounded the capital, he burnt down his citadel and himself within.
How come? If we first acknowledge that our might is limited, it all fits perfectly. If God doesn’t approve, we may soar to the highest sky, but as soon as it happens we will find ourselves falling into the deepest pit. But today we bring to you good news: He approves our progress and to make things better, He also gives us His power. Because His might and power are unlimited, we will experience unlimited power as well. His power makes us invincible, whether it be your business, family, health, or service, He will make us successful.
Human has power, but it is VERY LIMITED.
1. If you dig deeper into your life, had you been relied upon His power to accomplish challenges in your life?
2. In your opinion, what can you do, as a limited human being, to possess unlimited power and potential?
3. What will you do to apply today’s rhema in your life?
“Jesus Christ our LORD, we understand our limitation, we can’t do nothing if You don’t interfere. We need You in our lives, so we may prevail and be successful in every aspect of our lives. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
