Getting the power




Lots of Christians do go to the other side looking for power. The question is, ‘has God changed?’
God has not changed. We are the one rather who are doing the wrong things. The bitter truth is, although prayer is good, we cannot get the power through prayer alone. In fact, the key to the power is relationship. How are we related to God?
When God wanted to destroy Sodom, He never does it till He told Abraham His friend. When Jesus wanted to let the world know what is ahead, He revealed all the information to John the beloved.
Psalm 91 teaches us the benefits of dwelling in His presence alone. If dwelling in His presence alone yields these results, then being in deeper relationship with him will enable us pull all the desired power without asking.
When I was young I did read lots of books. My discovery was that, in talismanic magic, the practiser draws power from talisman through meditation. Also, in elemental magic, the practiser draws power from elements through meditation—earth, water, air, trees, stones, created things of God, etc.
If this is done by those on the other side who copy; then we who know God through Jesus Christ can obtain power to do God’s work by doing simple things—prayer, fasting and meditation.
The unknown truth is, meditating upon God’s word and God’s Names brings power beyond comprehension. Remember, in the prayer that Jesus Christ taught us, He thought us to hallow the name of God. Do you think the Lord will tell us to do this, if it does not bring any benefit? Besides, God Himself told Joshua to meditate upon the Word in Joshua 1:8 and he will prosper. If it is not true, God will not have told Joshua.
So, the power is in our hands. What we need to do is to activate the power by doing what is right—relate to God rightly, meditate upon the Word and His name, pray and fast as well. If we do this, there is a sure guarantee of the power beyond measure in our lives.

Behold I give you power

Luke 10:19

“behold i  give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemies: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
When the Lord called His disciples, the first power that He gave them was the power of knowledge and wisdom. Being the Word of God(John 1), and the Word that created all things, He made sure that the word leads.
By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. Proverbs 8:15
The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. Proverbs 3:19
Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: Proverbs 24:3
look, a lion is said to be king of the forest because of two things: its courage and wisdom—so is the hawk and the eagle.
Have you ever seen a lion attacking an animal before? Think  about a lion or lions wanting to attack an animal. Do you see how it or they act? They do by attacking the neck first. Besides, they often go in groups to attack; and the attack they attack the feeble ones, and those animals not in groups. Think about we people: people can boast when they are in a group, but when they are alone, they cannot demonstrate that ability. In evangelizing people, one on one you can easily convince a person when he or she is alone than when he or she is with a group.
The Lord Yeshua gave His disciples the power of wisdom. This power was to help them do lots. Remember, he told them to be:
 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves (Matthew 10:16). Before He told them this, He knew the wisdom and knowledge that was in them. He himself has invested in them, and the Father too has done so. So, knowing this, He called them to act in that wisdom by quoting the above scripture.
It was this wisdom in Him that shut up the Pharisees, Sadducees and the rest. These people were indeed serpents and scorpions, yet the Lord used wisdom to overcome them. You see, the only way to kill a serpent is to use wisdom. If you don’t, it will bite you. Wisdom is the principal thing says a proverb in Proverb 4. David also said that, the Word(wisdom) of God is a lamp unto His feet.
Also remember wisdom and knowledge are part of the ministries of the Holy Spirit
·         The earth, stars, all planets are known as ordinances of the Lord. God ordained them to help you throughout your life. They provide time, seasons, weather, air and many more. God is indeed good and love. Praises be unto His righteous and glorious name.
