Own Your Power


There is power and then there is power. The most powerful people are those who use their power for the good of all, not for their own self aggrandizement.

Most of us don’t feel that we have any power over anything until something catches our attention to prove otherwise. In my case it was the Bible’s many scriptures introducing me to my power. Please read on.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; Acts 1:8 NIV

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us..Ephesians 3:20 NIV

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV

The wise prevail through great power, and those who have knowledge muster their strength. Proverbs 24:5 NIV

…being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance …Colossians 1:11

And then there is my poem:

“All Things Are Possible”.

All things are possible

To those who believe

To those who have faith

As a small mustard seed

All goals can be reached

All dreams can come true

When you call on the Power

Inherent in you

All life can be lived

To the fullest extent

All wishes fulfilled

As you know that He meant

All things are possible

To those who believe

To those who have faith

As a small mustard seed.

And so, the moral of today’s post is to own your power.
