“I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name” (Revelation 3:8).
The little power, dare I say the only power we have, is the power to become children of God as it says in John, chapter one. We are under the authority of Christ. Do not take liberty with these things, but humbly submit to the One who has opened the door in order that You may enter. Be guided by His goodness and know that the Lord of all is leading You in the power He gives you so that you may steward your life to become like Him.
Lord, all power does belong to You. You grant us, from Your power, that which is needed to walk the journey of becoming. There are many who hunger for power, but that is an illusive and deadly goal. Your faithful people demonstrate that they live by faith. They do not seek for worldly power, but humbly walk with You. The road is narrow and You must lead so that we do not veer from the path.
Lord, lead me the remaining days of this life so that each day I may progress in the way You would have me go. Guide me in Your goodness to see that in You alone is all hope. Your promises are forever. Let me not walk my own way or by my own power, but in Your power which You grant so that I may increasingly become like You. Help as You know I need it to walk with You always. Amen.
