God is described in Nahum 1:3 as slow to anger and great in power. Since God is our Father, then the saying Like Father Like son/ daughter is what we need to live up too.
Jesus said in the Book of Luke 10:19 Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.
To flow in this POWER and ANOINTING requires disciple, holiness, and consistency.
What I mean by the word Holiness is a lifestyle based on the word of God, such as no sex before marriage, an honest and life of integrity.
As there are some acts that could short-circuit the flow of God’s power in our life. That’s why serious Christian wouldn’t get intoxicated, fornicate and lie to name a few.
Believers and followers of Jesus have to crave for the POWER & AUTHORITY given to us by our LORD and Saviour. Yes, it has already been given, but we have to activate it regularly through prayer, studying God’s Word, praising and worshiping the LORD, adding to the list of how to activate it, our lifestyle is essential.
In studying human nature, some people tend to be addicted to power, that’s why some leaders of certain countries want to stay as President as long as possible or forever.
As a messenger of God, one must be addicted to God’s POWER and be willing to PAY the price, one of the reasons is, one can’t be useful to God without POWER.
It’s this power that makes us stand against the wicked and evil people; this power makes us spiritually dangerous. The Bible says the Kingdom of God suffers violence, violence takes by force.
The word Violence means here that one’s prayer life is HOT, and one should have a warning sign written Be Warned, don’t Hurt your yourself.
If a Christian doesn’t have power, then one can’t protect one’s self from our enemies. Now we always have to give God the glory for every victory against the enemy, because it’s God allowing us to share in His divine nature and all this is by His Amazing Grace.
There is a confidence when a person or even a Country has POWER, and that’s why we see North Korea flexing its muscle, and the world can only respond by sanctions. Which is sensible as any miscalculated action could lead to World War 3, and nothing good can come out of such a situation, only the soon return of our LORD and SAVIOUR.
So finally, fellow messengers of God and followers of Jesus Christ, pay the price and activate the POWER our LORD has already given us.
Until next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
