God’s Power in Your Life: The Power To Do God’s Work
No matter who you are or where you are, God can empower you to do His work!

God uses Scripture to prepare and equip His people to do every good work.

II Timothy 3:17
What makes you feel powerful? If you have accepted God’s forgiveness and allowed Him to teach you to walk in His ways, now you can show God’s empowerment in your life.

Here are ways you can show His power through your actions:

1. Don’t Depend On Your Own Strength
God’s power is given in His grace; He can work in your weakness. The Apostle Paul worked in the power of God’s guidance only, and is recorded as doing more to help form the early Church than any other Christian. And it was because he depended on God, not on himself. The Lord told him, “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” And St Paul added, “So if Christ keeps giving me His power, I will gladly brag about how weak I am (II Corinthians 12:9-10). Are you willing to let God show his power in your weakness?

2. Let God Lead The Way
If you have accepted God’s power, and are ready to do His work, you might be wondering what to do. First, start by praying to God and consult with other believers about finding God’s will before making any decisions.

Here is an example of listening for God’s leading, found in II Samuel chapter 7. Israel’s ancient King David wanted to build a temple to hold the Ark of the Covenant, and at first, the Prophet Nathan approved this project. However, that night, the Lord instructed Nathan to stop King David, for it was not God’s will to have the building at the time. The Lord later allowed David’s son Solomon to construct the Temple.

We too must be careful to listen for God’s leading, and let Him empower us.

3. Understand The Power Of The Holy Spirit
So how will God empower you? The Bible tells us that “God’s Spirit gives us power, love, and self-control” (II Timothy 1:7). The Lord fills His people “with power and His Spirit” (Micah 3:8) whom Jesus promised to send to all those who have accepted Him.

Are you depending on the Holy Spirit for guidance? If so, you can trust the Lord to empower you and guide you in doing His work.

Pray this week:

Dear Lord, allow me to be weak, so Your power can enable me to do Your will! Amen.

A Miracle?

A Miracle?
Did dead mother save her baby from beyond the grave? Three US cops
claim mystery 'woman's voice' called to them from flooded car where
they found baby alive beside her mother's body – 14 HOURS after crash
  *   Lynn Groesbeck, 25, was driving home from her parents' house
Friday night when she veered off roadway and into Spanish Fork River  *   Fisherman found the car the next day, partially submerged in the river
  *   Groesbeck was found dead in driver's seat of vehicle, while her
baby girl was alive in the back seat, above the frigid river waters  *   Police officers said they heard an unknown woman's voice asking
softly for help as they approached the overturned car  *   Lily Groesbeck, 18 months old, was flown to Primary Children's
Hospital, where she was in stable condition and is improving

The four officers who rescued an 18-month-old toddler from the wreck
of a submerged car on Sunday said they launched into their heroics
when they heard desperate pleas for help coming from a woman inside.

But when the four men used all their strength to right the red Dodge
sedan, they found little Lily Groesbeck to be the only passenger left
alive in the vehicle.

Her mother, 25-year-old Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck, had passed away the
night before when she lost control of the car and could not possibly
have called for the men to help save her child.

'For two nights I've laid awake trying to figure out exactly what it
could be. All I know is it was there, we all heard it,' Spanish Fork
Police Officer Tyler Beddoes said. 'It was extra motivation.'[Lone survivor: 25-year-old Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck (left) and her
