Infused with Strength
Ephesians 6:10,18 (TPT) Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers.
I’m so thankful that in Christ, we are full of strength and power. Scripture says Jesus is the head of the church and we are the body. So, we are the hands and feet of Jesus on the earth. The thought that Jesus needs us can be incomprehensible at times. It’s our duty to fulfill the Great Commission and we cannot do it in our own strength. We must be supernaturally infused with the strength of Jesus. It’s His power in us that makes it possible for us to share the gospel and help people all around the world. Paul reminds us to always be in prayer and to pray for one another.
We need to be in constant prayer - this doesn’t mean we don't stop to eat, breathe, and live. But we live in an attitude of prayer; when trouble comes - pray. When bad reports come - pray. When someone has a need - pray for them and ask God what you can do in the natural to help. Be a blessing and put the needs of others before your own - this life of generosity will prove God's strength in your life because as you help others God will be faithful to take care of your every need!
Philippians 2:3-5 (TPT) Be free from pride-filled opinions, for they will only harm your cherished unity. Don’t allow self-promotion to hide in your hearts, but in authentic humility put others first and view others as more important than yourselves. Abandon every display of selfishness. Possess a greater concern for what matters to others instead of your own interests. And consider the example that Jesus, the Anointed One, has set before us. Let his mindset become your motivation.
Study the life of Jesus - let his example be set before you as you live out this faith-filled journey on the earth. If you are angry, be angry at the enemy and pay him back by doing the most good you possibly can for others. Evil isn't defeated by evil - LOVE is what conquered the grave! Evil is defeated by GOOD! Seek God's kingdom and not your own kingdom. All earthly kingdoms will fade away but put your efforts toward that which is everlasting!
Matthew 6:33-34 (TPT) “So above all, constantly seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness, then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”
1 Chronicles 16:11-13 (NLT) Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him. Remember the wonders he has performed, his miracles, and the rulings he has given, you children of his servant Israel, you descendants of Jacob, his chosen ones.
Write down all of the blessings God has given you and note each and every miracle no matter how big or small. If someone paid for your meal, write it down! If someone gives you a gift in a time of need, write it down! Do not forget all God has done for you - share your testimony and continue to pour out blessings to others so God may be glorified!
I pray for the blessings of God to surround you and for His grace to carry you each day.
