God’s Power 19
So that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power. 1 Corinthians 2:5
Your faith always needs to rest on something. Most of the time, our faith rests on self, other humans or on our own faith and ability. That is why we are not successful in prayer and experiencing God’s favor. God commands that we must have faith, and tells us that without faith, it is impossible to please Him.
In order to have faith we must keep on dying to self and self glory and keep on increasing in our dependence and reliance on God’s power.
It is only God’s power that can make a difference. It is only God’s power that can heal, deliver and give you power to make wealth.
“And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18
1 Corinthians 2:5, reminds us that our faith should not rest on human wisdom but on God’s power. God’s power destroyed death and raised Jesus from the dead. The sacrifice of Jesus is the power of God. Jesus is the power and wisdom of God.
We need to depend on God’s sacrifice and foundation which is the sacrifice of Jesus for our redemption. We also need to depend on God’s power and glory that God manifests from His throne of glory every moment, and every day, for our protection, healing, deliverance and prosperity.
Without faith, it is impossible to please God, so I pray that our faith will keep growing more and more as we read the Bible and cling to the word of God.
May grace, mercy and peace be ours in full measure. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
