A-3 – Power and Possibilities

Comments Off on A-3 – Power and Possibilities 26 September 2014

Two things to think of today: power and possibilities! You have been endowed like all of the people God has created. Sometimes we think we are insignificant, second-rate, unimportant, out-classed. That is never so, but we can believe it to be so. That is self-defeating. God has given you power, and He has designed you with some incredible possibilities of things He wants to do through you.

1. You have power. I believe God has given you the power to achieve some incredible things. “Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of–infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes” (Ephesians 3:20 LB). Think of the untapped power of heaven’s resources we leave untapped each day! Yes, God has given you “his might power” to do more than you will ever dream of. You are the only one who can exercise that power for success in your life. God is always ready to do more through you than you could ever dream of. God gives us the ability to dream. Every great accomplishment has grown out of someone’s dream. Nothing happens until you dream. You need a dream and you need to allow God to empower you to see it through. Every great thing came from a small beginning. So, don’t be intimidated. Dream big and allow God to stretch your faith and give you the power to accomplish it! In dreaming you will see God’s activity and sense His power to make it happen.

2. You have possibilities. “No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing” (Eph. 2:10 The Message). How incredible! God is inviting us, in fact, planning for us to get in on what He is doing in the world. Your possibilities are all of those things God has created for you to do. It would astound you to know what those possibilities are. Many people never find out the full measure of what God would do through their lives. Don’t miss out! Take the time to stop, look, and listen each day and discover God’s whole realm of possibilities for you. And, remember there are possibilities for more than earthly success. “John answered, ‘It’s not possible for a person to succeed–I’m talking about eternal success–without heaven’s help'” (John 3:27 The Message). So, you must have heaven’s help. “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed” (Prov. 16:3 NLT). There comes a time when you have to stop talking and evaluating and take action. Think of the trapeze artist who has to let go of the bar he or she swings out on and reach for the next one to succeed. If they do not let go they swing back where they came from. Today decide not to swing back. Let go of the past and reach out for God’s possibilities for you!

God is ready and willing to give you the power and to grow you into the possibilities He has for you here and in heaven! It’s up to you to discover your power and achieve your possibilities!

The painting in my logo is by an artist named Kelly O'Neill.

If you appreciate excellence in art and are captivated by works that grip your emotions and proclaim the remarkable truths of God’s Word, you will want to know more about the very compelling art piece that is part of my ministry logo.

Kelly O’Neill is a remarkable young artist who very masterfully depicts the compassion, grace, and redeeming love of Jesus Christ in her painting, “Redeemed.” No painting has so grabbed my emotions and stirred my gratitude to Christ for His redeeming love as this one. Technically unparalleled, inspired, heart-stirring, and mind captivating are words I used upon seeing it for the first time.

Getting to know Kelly and the background of her wonderful work have served as great motivators as I launch out on a new ministry path in my own life. Kelly is also the developer of my website.

I commend her and her work to you and encourage you to visit her website www.TheArtistOfLife.com
