Week 42: Oct 15th – Oct 21nd
Bible passage to read: Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:37-41; and Luke 8:23-25
“The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous run to it, and is safe.” Proverbs 18:10
God knows everything and therefore he can do everything. He created the heavens and the earth without the knowledge of someone else because he himself is an embodiment of wisdom, knowledge and understanding. God may permit some people to exercise their power on other people but that does not mean that they are more powerful than him. He can allow wind to blow for a long time and he will stop it whenever he feels like.
The co passengers in the ship of Jesus were astonished of his power (Mk8:23-27) because they have never seen such miracle before in their lives. Their usual experience with tempest on the sea is death. Whenever anyone is being faced with tempest on the sea, such people patiently wait to die if they can’t swim to the shore. So, they were expecting the same thing to happen to them on this faithful day but Jesus had another plan; he wants to show case his indomitable power for the world to believe that there is God in Israel!
Apostle Paul confirmed in his epistle to the Colossians that God is the head of all rulers and authorities in the world (Col2:10). No matter how powerful your pastor/Prophet may be, his power can never be compared to the Lord who is the head of all powers and principalities. The same God represented himself in Christ and that was the reason why it was easy for him to shame the power of the dead (Colossians 1:19) right there inside the grave.
Jesus said all power on earth and heaven has been given unto him and this includes “everything”. Your victory in Jesus is total and all-inclusive for all situations. No matter may be the type of your sickness, be it cancer, hypertension, high blood pressure, migraine, head ache or ulcer, they must totally submit to the will of your father in heaven because Jesus won the battles over them all long time ago. All you need do now is to walk in the reality of the victory given to you by your father.
Lions are born bold because their father is bold. The kids of lion don’t disturb themselves with the affairs of the jungle because their father has won the battle over the whole jungle long time ago before they were born. So, it doesn’t matter who make noise at the jungle at any time, what matter most is that nothing will affect them because they are children of the king of the jungle.
Dear friend, you are born a Lion because your father who is in heaven is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Exercise your authority on earth like never before. Don’t fear any situation and choose not to be worried of any issue. Let not the devil rob you of your position in the kingdom, walk gallantly into your victory and it shall be well with you.
Potency means the measure of power. What is the measure of God’s power in your life. Is it average, full or low. One thing is for sure though, as long as you are still breathing in oxygen(as you read this), the power of God still exists in you.
