God’s Power 7
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
Everything was created through Christ and for Christ. This means that there is no need for us to fear powers that are against us. Every power is inferior and subject to Christ.
All things are inferior and subject to Christ and all things were created through Christ and for Christ
Instead of fear, we should always think of response and change. God can change and defeat every power for us. Response is about right focus and how we change because God cannot change. This means that we are the ones to change.
Maybe God wants us to pray more and persevere in prayer to defeat our enemies. It is also possible that we need to repent of something in our lives that are against God’s will and His plan for our lives.
God is in control of all things and not even a strand of hair can fall from our head without God’s permission. He is in perfect control but sin has shielded His glory and power from the eyes of man.
God’s sovereignty rules over all, but unfortunately, most people don’t believe that. They think that there are many gods and that somehow, God lost control.
Do not focus on negative circumstances, do not focus on idol worshippers and the wicked that are extremely prosperous. If you do that you will be frustrated, become discouraged and loose faith.
Focus on why God has permitted certain undesirable things in your life and how He wants you to respond in other to change those undesirable things. Focus on being led by the Holy Spirit and allowing Him to lead you out of every valley and wilderness of life.
That is why God gave Him to us as a precious gift. He is the comforter, guide and helper not the tormentor. The Holy Spirt is available to help us out of sin, temptation and judgement because God does not delight in judgement but will decree justice and judgement as the just God that He is.
Every power is under God including the powers of lying deceptive idols. Focus on goodness, solution and change and walking with the Holy Spirit to escape judgement and experience constant mercy.
Mercy triumphs over judgement but judgement will be given to us if we don’t cooperate with God. I have experienced judgement and I know what it feels like. God does not enjoy it but will permit it.
God is the only lawgiver and judge. He alone can save and destroy. There is only one God not many gods. All other so called gods are delusions and deceptions of the devil to destroy man. Everything was created through Christ and for Christ. He alone is worthy of admiration, praise and worship.
