Topic: Preserved By His Power
The power of God is a keeper of men; it is a preserver of lives and destinies. We are held together, kept alive and kept in charge by the power of God.
SCRIPTURE: Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:5
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When you are equipped with power, you are guaranteed safety.
The power of God is a keeper of men; it is a preserver of lives and destinies. We are held together, kept alive and kept in charge by the power of God. The knowledge of this truth is very important because we live in a world that is becoming increasingly dangerous.
For instance, someone’s offence is that he entered a taxicab, and suddenly found that he is in the midst of strange and deadly people with the intention of robbing or killing him. We live in days where human beings have become more heartless than you can ever imagine, more beastly than animals because even animals at times can be entreated. So, we need power to be kept, and the power of God is a keeper. God’s power is the major tool for the preservation of the lives and destinies of God’s people.
When you are equipped with power, you are guaranteed safety. The bankruptcy of power can lead to vulnerability in life; where power is in short supply, a person can be easily vulnerable to the wickedness of the wicked.
Moses would have died before his time if not for the power of God. Moses was one man who carried power; he was a symbol of power so he could not be wasted by the devil. Pharaoh, as terrible as he was, looked for Moses and Moses, after encountering the power of God, returned to face him. He manhandled Pharaoh until Pharaoh was buried in the Red Sea (Exodus 10:7; Exodus 14:1-28). That is, Moses became the terroriser of a terrorist (Pharaoh) by power.
Beloved, if you want your life to become a snare to the kingdom of darkness, what you need is power, the Power of God.
REMEMBER THIS: When you are equipped with power, you are guaranteed safety.
Believe that you cannot be wasted by the enemy.
Make use of the power you have as a child of God against the enemy.
Spend more time with God at the place of prayer and worship.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for the power and authority You gave me in Christ. In the Name of Jesus, I condemn every tongue and device of the enemy against my life, destiny, and family. I shall fulfil my days, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
