Faith in the Power of God

Faith in the Power of God

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (NKJV)

1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

As we journey through life, we gain wisdom through His Scriptures, our prayer time, our circumstances, as well as from others He puts in our path.  God is constantly showing us His love.  A right Scripture in His prefect timing.  Stopping to pray when we need to know that He listens and cares.  We may be seeking answers and the circumstances we are in show us His love.  We may even get encouragement from others when we need it to help us along our journey.

God shows us His power in various ways as we stay in step with Him.  Please make sure in all ways that He gets all the Glory.  We are not to put our faith in man, but in God alone.  His power, His timing, His love, His ways, His Words, and our complete trust in Him will show us His will, His wisdom, and His direction.  God knows all that we need, and we are to trust Him.

Our trust in Him will keep us grounded and looking to Him.  He may put a mentor or friend in our life that prays with us and encourages us, but trust in God and thank Him for those He puts in your path and lean on God for all your answers.  Jesus is a True Friend, the Holy Spirit is your guide, and your Heavenly Father knows you because He created you.  Trust in the power of the Blessed Trinity and give God all the Glory.

Father:

Thank You for all that You show me.  You encourage, equip, and empower me every step of the way.  Please help me to stay in step with You Jesus and forgive me where I do not put my complete trust in You.  Thank You also Holy Spirit for interceding my prayers and guiding me in the Scriptures.  To You Father be all the Glory.

In Jesus Holy and Precious Name I pray, Amen.
