Which is more powerful: a gun in your hand or the divine power of God living in you through the divine power of the Holy Spirit? A gun can kill and take life, however a gun cannot give life or forgive sin. Which is more powerful: having the ability to give life or take life?
13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13
4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4
As you read Ephesians 1:18-20, put your name in the blanks. “I pray also that the eyes of _______’s heart may be enlightened in order that ________ may know the hope to which HE has called you, the riches of HIS glorious inheritance in the saints________, and HIS incomparably great power for _______ who believes. That power is like the working of HIS mighty strength, which HE exerted in Christ when HE raised HIM from the dead and seated HIM at his right hand in the heavenly realms.”
Paul’s prayer for you is that you would know the power of God which is in you. This is the same resurrection power which raised Jesus from the dead. This is the same power which allows you to forgive others and forget their trespasses against you. It is the same power which keeps you on course to never give up in your mission as an Ambassador of God in the Ministry of Reconciliation in the power of the Holy Spirit through the blood of Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit in you is divine power to break addictions, release light where there is darkness, speak truth where there are lies, bring abundance where there is lack, bring hope where there is a mountain of resentment and hurt, bring forgiveness where there is brokenness, bring peace where there is anxiety, bring contentment where there is strife and bring joy where there is pain. Even with a gun in his hand, man’s power is limited and temporal, while God’s divine power is eternal.
Greater is HE (the divine power of God) who is in you than he (the gun) who is in the world. God’s Almighty Divine Power is greater than anything the world has to offer.
