The Real Source of Power

By   •   October 9   •   Topics: ,

A man or a woman who has been focusing all attention on financial gains, or business, or social prestige, or who has centered all his affection on some one person, experiences a devastating sense of loss when denied the thing that has given life its meaning. In these tragic moments, the individual recognizes how terribly and completely alone he is.

In that moment the Holy Spirit may cause the worldly bandages to fall from his eyes so that he sees clearly for the first time. He recognizes that God is the only source of real power, and the only enduring fountainhead of love and companionship.

What gives your life meaning? Listen to this Billy Graham message about turning away from worldly pleasures. 

Prayer for the day

From out of the depths, Lord, my eyes have seen that only You are unchanging, eternal love. Help me to put You first in everything I do.

    Our relationship with God Almighty should be preeminent above all others. He is worthy of only our best. In return he showers us with his incredible love , every day. That’s certainly does not mean that we should not love our earthly family very deeply. We definitely should. However there is a Godly love and there is our human love for one another.

    Lord, when it happens, thank you for opening our eyes so we can truly see what matters most and that is you. You have given us power, and made us more than conquerors in Christ Jesus…the author and the finisher of our faith.
