“For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power. What do you desire? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love and a spirit of gentleness? (1 Corinthians 4:20-21)
We convey the Kingdom of God with words and sometimes make the mistake that all we are delivering are words. God spoke into existence all things with words, but Christ Jesus is the power of God that created all things. Come into the power of God. Walk in the Holy Spirit and know that it is God at work in you. He is the One who is maintaining all things and He invites us to live in Him and He in us.
Lord, it is not my power, nor my ability, but yours that makes all the difference. Help me, I pray, to see through the fog of this age that I may now and always walk in Your will and Your way. Lead me according to Your purposes and for Your sake that I may abide in Your power now and always. Lead me, O Lord, according to the plans You have for all of creation now and forever.
Lord Jesus, You came humbly and walked among us. Many confused the use of Your words as a lack of power. You did many miracles and even raised the dead, yet they would not believe. Help me, Lord, to see more clearly that I may also walk humbly and see Your power flowing through all I say and do. Guide me by Your Spirit, O Lord, in the ways that are pleasing to the Father. Amen.
