Release the Power Inside

"But when the multitudes saw it, they marveled, and glorified God,  which had given such power unto men" Matthew 9:8

Jesus had just performed two miracles.  A man who was paralyzed had been brought before Jesus by his friends, and Jesus had both healed his spirit, (by forgiving his sin) and healed his body by curing his disease.  The man got up, picked up his bed, and returned home.

Throngs of people were amazed and gave God glory because of this miraculous power.  

Christian, God still does miracles today, and He is willing to do miracles through you if you will but use this power for the glory of God.  You have access to power that is on loan from God for use in this life!

Two thoughts occur to me.  I encourage you to ask the same questions I have asked of myself today.

 Am I a believer in the power of God?  Or am I one of the skeptics that doubts the authority and power of God to do miracles.  If I believe that God has the ability and power to forgive my sin in my life, (which is the greatest of these two miracles) then why do I doubt His ability and authority to work miracles in this world through my life?

Is my life bringing others to an amazement of God's power and causing others to turn to God and glorify Him.  Or, am I living a life for my own glory.  Am I seeking for others to see me, or God working through me.  Or, am I living my Christian life in such a shroud of secrecy that no one even is amazed because I don't declare the glory, power, and authority of God through my body?

Friend, if you belong to God, then the Holy Spirit and power of God live in you.  You have power of which you do not realize.  Live you life believing that God desires to do mighty works through you for His glory.

If you want to live an amazing life, live a life that leads people to be amazed at the power of God and causes them to give Glory to God, that He could do such a work through you.  

Do others see Jesus in you, marvel, and praise God!  Let others see Jesus and release the Power inside.
