This morning I woke up with things on my mind. Things that the Bible would classify as “cares of the world". I tried to go back to sleep but those cares kept me up tossing and turning. This is NOT the will of God! So I turned over onto my back and started praying. I told God, I was going to do what 1 Peter 5:7 instructs me to do “give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.”
So I started going down the list of what was on my mind and told Him that I was casting each item upon Him.
Then the power went out.
Now, it was early in the morning and the sun was already up so I was not in complete darkness, but I had things to do to get ready for the day and electricity would certainly make things easier!
As I sat there in total silence, the Holy Spirit started to minister to me. In my spirit I heard: "What about your power"?
2 Timothy 1:7 says “God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind!
1 Corinthians 4:19 says “ … I’ll find out whether these arrogant people just give pretentious speeches or whether they really have God’s power.”
Proverbs 18:21 says “Death and life are in the power of the tongue...”
So I sat up, swung my legs over the side of my bed, and started to decree and declare the Word of God over me!
I took the power that God gave me in Christ Jesus and started to use it!
When I was done, the power in the house came back on.
Then the Holy Spirit started to give me practical answers to some of those cares by telling me what to do to bring resolution to some of them. I had some answers, but more importantly I had His peace.
We have power, ladies. Don't ever let the cares of this world cause you to forget that. Don't sit in life's darkness. Our power NEVER goes because we have the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. Now use that power!!
God bless you. Stay encouraged!
