The Radical Power

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Think about the power of the cross. It was an execution stake, a horrible vessel of torture and death that became the symbol of life and hope. Amazing! Death turned into life. It was the worst thing that could happen that became the best thing that ever happened. The worst sin that has ever been– the crucifixion of God– became the greatest act of righteousness that has ever been. The ending of Messiah’s life becomes the beginning of eternal life. The cross becomes a place of hope, and the tomb becomes a place of new beginnings. The power of Messiah, is to turn everything upside down. You have that power, too. If you’re in Messiah, you have the power to turn everything upside down; to turn your sorrows into joy, your setbacks into victory, your failures into triumph, and to turn every bad thing into the blessing of God. Use that power. For the cross is the most revolutionary power in the universe. It’s the power of the Lord for you to turn the world – and your life – upside down.

Today’s Mission

Today, whatever your situation, take the power you have in Messiah and apply it to your life – Turn your life – and the world around you – upside down!

God's Power

A.B. Simpsonby A.B. Simpson

According to the power that worketh in us —Ephesians 3:20

When we reach the place of union with God through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we come into the inheritance of external blessing and enter upon the land of our possession. Then our health and physical strength come to us through the power of our interior life. Then the prayer is fulfilled that we shall be in health and prosper as our soul prospers. Then, with the kingdom of God and His righteousness within us all things are added unto us.

God’s external working always keeps pace with the power that works in us. When God is enthroned in a human soul, the devil and the world soon find it out. We do not need to advertise our power. Jesus could not be hid, and a soul filled with divine power and purity should become the center of attraction to hungry hearts and Suffering lives.

Let us receive Him and recognize Him in His indwelling glory, and then will we appropriate all that it means for our life in all its fullness.

Lord, give me the “hiding of thy power,” and let Christ be glorified in me.
