Do you ever feel powerless to make a difference? You have a burden On your heart and you think it’s too big for you or you’ll never be able to do anything about it in any real way. I think thise feelings come from listening to the enemies whispers and forgetting the truth about our hero and his super power.
Yesterday on my run, God reminded me of truths I think I had lost sight of this past week or so. Specifically of God’s heart of blessing and grace and how He desires to hear our prayers and fill them with power. These are things I’ve spoken on befor!. Yet, I still continually need reminders.
James 5:16 says the prayer if a righteous person has great power as it is working. You might think, oh that can’t be me; I’m not a righteous person. Wrong! Do you really think others would be able to muster up more righteousness than you? Can you make yourself more righteous? No. We are made righteous before God through he finished work of Christ on the cross. When in sin and doubt go to 1 John 1:9 confess and He is faithful and just to cleanse your from all unrighteousness. Believe it! And Eph. 2:30 speaks of the power at work in is- that vs1:19 says is power of the Holy Spirit and His great might.
I’d love to ask you to tap into that incredible power of prayer to pray for a youth conference Kaitlyn and I are helping with this weekend. Pray God grabs hold of youth in this country. We need His power.
