God’s Power in Your Life: Living God's Will
God teaches His people to avoid sin and to live in His ways.

Everything in the Scriptures is God’s Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people and for correcting them and showing them how to live.

II Timothy 3:16
Do you know that God is calling YOU to live out an extraordinary life by following His commandments and seeking His will for your life? After you have experienced the power of God’s forgiveness, you can allow His power to remake your life in His ways.

Here are ways you can learn to listen for His teachings:

1.Obey God’s Word
“What God has said isn’t only alive and active! It is sharper than any double-edged sword.” (Hebrews 4:12)! The Bible is full of stories that tell of God’s love and hopes for His people. Reading and studying it regularly will help you come to know Him better. When you have questions about what you should do, use God’s Word as “a lamp that gives light wherever you walk” (Psalm 119:105). The stories of the people featured in God’s Word often present great examples of how we should behave (or how not to behave!). No example is better than that of God the Son, Jesus Christ.

2. Jesus Was Called “Rabbi,” Which Means “Teacher”
How can we know that God wants us to learn? Well, while He lived on earth, Jesus took the title of teacher — He was famous for it: even when potential enemies met with him, they said, “‘Teacher, we know that you are honest. You teach the truth about what God wants people to do. And you treat everyone with the same respect, no matter who they are.’” (Matthew 22:15-16). Jesus taught His followers, “If you love me, you will do what I have said, and my Father will love you. I will also love you and show you what I am like.” (John 14:21). Learn what Jesus has to say, and learn to obey those instructions, depending on His power to make it possible for you to do so.

3. Let God Teach You
“I will point out the road that you should follow. I will be your teacher and watch over you.” (Psalm 32:8). God’s power is so great that He knows you: He knows who you really are; He knows your situation; He knows what you want and what you need! Tell Him what you need, and listen for His guidance. The Apostle Paul advised, “Let the message about Christ completely fill your lives, while you use all your wisdom to teach and instruct each other” (Colossians 3:16). Ask trusted Christian friends, family, and leaders for godly support and prayer. Compare their advice with what you find in God’s Word (Acts 17:11) as you seek the power of God’s will in your life.

Pray this week:

O Lord, along with Psalm 25:4, I pray that You will show me the right path; and point out the road for me to follow. Amen.

We Reign And Rule In His Name

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All
power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye
therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
Ghost (Matthew 28:18-19).

In our opening scripture, Jesus said, “All power
is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” The
word “power” here is the Greek “exousia”; it means
authority. “All power,” not “some power,” has been
given to Jesus, in heaven and in earth.
The Bible says in Colossians 2:15, “And having
spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew
of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” When
Jesus died, He didn’t ascend to heaven immediately;
He had been made sin for us (2 Corinthians 5:21), and
had to go to hell on behalf of all men. When He got
to hell, there was an actual combat between Jesus and
the forces of darkness. The Bible says “…the hostile
princes and rulers He shook off from Himself, and
boldly displayed them as His conquests…” (Colossians
2:15 WNT).
In hell, Jesus invaded Satan’s domain, whipped
him and all his demons, and came out triumphantly
from the grave. When He came out, He said to His
disciples, “All hail!” (Matthew 28:9). It was a shout of
victory, because He’d conquered Satan for us and 
given us dominion over the powers of darkness. Now,
it doesn’t matter whatever hierarchy of demons exist,
we’re superior to them; they’re under our feet.
No wonder He says, “Behold, I give unto you
power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over
all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by
any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19). As we spread the
message of Christ, taking the Gospel to the nations of
the world, we ought to be conscious of our authority
and dominion in Christ Jesus. We’re His ambassadors;
we’re to keep reigning and ruling in His Name, making
pupils of the nations, and filling the earth with the glory
of His presence. Hallelujah!
Confession
I’m born of God and therefore,
I’ve overcome the world. My
faith is producing results; I’m
walking in victory and dominion
over Satan and circumstances,
for the greater One lives in me.
Hallelujah!

The Wonder Of His Word

It would seem paradoxical to think that some people who go to church don’t have time to
listen to the Word. Some of them love the music; they enjoy the music ministrations, after which they leave the church service. They don’t wait for the message, because they have no value for the Word.
The Word of God is too important. To value the Word is to value Jesus, for Jesus is the living Word. The Bible says, “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah,
nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be” (Genesis 49:10). When the Word of God is taught in church, it’s not only so we can learn it or just for us to believe and act upon it, but it’s also for the Word to reproduce itself in us. It’s the greatest benefit we derive from the Word of God. Hallelujah! As you listen to, and believe the Word, the creative power therein comes into effect and transforms your
life. That’s the mystery of the spoken Word! The ministration of God’s Word produces in you what it
talks about. God’s Word has the divine power to do what it says. It’s different from man’s words. Anyone can say anything, but when it’s the Word of God, it has the power to affect our human spirits. There’s a miracle power about it that works. Cherish the Word. Let it be what you delight in
the most whenever you’re in church. As you receive the Word, it has the potentiality and capacity to make you what it talks about. That’s the wonder of God’s
Word
Prayer
Dear Father, I thank you for the
wonder-working power of your
Word; it heals the sick and raises
the dead. The Word works in
and for me always, producing
the results of what it talks about,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

You’re His Voice To Your World

Our opening scripture is the Lord’s instruction to everyone who has received Christ; you’re
to take the message of salvation to your world. You’re to teach those in your world how to live and walk in righteousness; you’re to teach all nations. What does He mean by “teach all nations?” Though synonymously used, it’s important to note that there’s a difference
between nations and countries; countries have borders, but nations don’t.
“Nations” in our theme scripture doesn’t mean countries. It derives from the Greek word “Ethnos,”
which refers to different groups of people, sharing a common interest. It’s our job to take the Gospel to every man’s world: to the different groups (ethnos) to which we belong. They may be in the world of politicians, doctors, artisans, musicians, academicians, lawyers, police or the armed forces; you’re God’s voice to your world. You’re a missionary, an oracle of God, commissioned to help the unconverted in your world You’re His Voice To Your World Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
Amen (Matthew 28:19-20).
Psalms 32-34
Romans 1:1-17
Ephesians
2:11-22
Isaiah 45
Prayer
Thanks be unto God, who has
made me an able minister of
the Gospel, to impact my world
with the knowledge of Christ. I
make full proof of my ministry,
as a preacher and teacher of
righteousness, proclaiming
liberty to the oppressed, and
bringing deliverance and the light
of Christ to those in bondage, by
the power of the Holy Spirit, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
receive salvation, and teach them the Word. You’re to show them the path of life, for you’re the light of the world. God has made you a man or woman of influence in your world; use your influence for Him. Make impact with the Gospel. Let more people in your world come to the knowledge of Christ through you. Be bold to preach and teach the Gospel, for you’re His voice to your world.
2 Timothy 4:2; 2 Corinthians 5 -18-19
