This Sunday our Pastor talked about our strength in the Lord.  I have read about who I am in the Lord many times as I read my Bible, but It never really sank into my mind.  She wanted us to understand that God lives in us, and therefore we can do anything because we have the strength of God and the power of God living in us.  It is God’s Holy Spirit that lives in us, God’s actual Spirit.   She started by reading (Psalm 46:1-2). ” God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”.  Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.   Wow!  We are not to be afraid while the earth is convulsing around us.  That is a pretty awesome statement.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”,  (Philip.4:13).

(Isaiah 41:10 ) Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you.  Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

(2 Corinthians 5:21 ) “For He has made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.”  Jesus was made sin for us.  God put all the sins of the world on Jesus so that He could put rightness upon us.  We are covered with the blood of Jesus because of the sacrifice He made for us, to save us.  When God looks at us, He sees us through the filter of the blood and we are clean before Him.  We can approach His throne and talk with Him because of the blood Jesus shed.

(2 Corinthians 9:8)  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that you , always having all-sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work…

(Mark  16:15-18)  And He said unto them, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he what believeth not shall be damned.  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

God has given us mighty power if we believe.  We actually have the Spirit what raised Jesus from the dead living in us, and He has great power.  We can do anything God wills.  The believer is powerful only as long as he believes and follows our Lord.  We must obey Him and obey quickly when He tells us to do something.  Let us truly follow our Lord and surrender to his call.

If the church could only get this into our spirits, the nations would belong to the Lord, for we would go out with such great power that the people would be amazed and fear, and believe in the Lord!
