It is my belief that deep within each of us is a Power to be used for the good of all as indicated by the following people including me.
You are never given a wish without also being given the Power to make it come true. Richard Bach
Never measure God’s unlimited Power by your limited expectations. Our Daily Bread 2010
Call on the Power inherent in you…(My poem, All Things are Possible)
The beginning of Power is consciously opening our minds to God and being receptive to his presence, his spirit, his voice and his will. Charles L. Allen
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of Power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
And then there is the poem I wrote in 1998:
THE POWER OF YOU
If you would be more powerful
release your ego
let it soar
let the roar of you subside,
see the power of you
to empower others.
Our Power is not to be mistaken for the power wielded by those who use and abuse it because they feel basically powerless in their own right. That power is actually a weakness.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty Power. Ephesians 6:10
I believe in angels…and why wouldn’t I? More than one personal experience has proven they exist for our help and comfort.
My most recent experience was while changing the cartridge in a dripping bathroom sink tap. Having been told it would be most difficult to remove the old cartridge, I went ahead and attempted the task. Sure enough when it came to the old cartridge, it would not budge…not one iota. After a great deal of twisting and turning the little strength I had left was depleted. That’s when I cried aloud, “C’mon, Angels, you have more strength than I, please help me do this!” It took one final twist and pull and…voila!…the cartridge was out. Any three-year-old would have been proud of my jumps of joy and hand-clapping.
After many thanks to my ministering angels, it wasn’t long before the tap was finally fixed. No more drips.
Now, before someone says, “There she goes again…imagination working overtime,” let me direct you to a few scriptures regarding angels:
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:11-12
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, (hold him in awe) and he delivers them. Psalm 34:7 (brackets mine)
So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. (Jesus) Hebrews 1:4 (brackets mine)
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
Even angels long to look into these things. 1 Peter 1:12
Enough said. Just wanted to say I believe in angels all around us. Doesn’t everyone?
We may experience weaknesses of many varieties such as physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, financial, moral, etc., but there is an antidote, and that is…strength.
…let the weak say, “I am strong” (Joel 3:10)
Its a new Sunday…enjoy.
