Today in the 40 Day Devotional series, we read…
Day 20 – Rely on God’s Power
Read 1 Corinthians 4:16-20
“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.” 1 Corinthians 4:20 (HCSB)
What is powering your church? This question triggers different answers. Some may say prayer, some great preaching; others a loving church family, one or two might even say electricity. Yet some churches have plugged into sources that will never power a church.
The Word of God tells us that the Kingdom of God is not powered by words. We can use words and try to get people motivated, but the reality is that words without action are of no lasting value. Someone once said, “Words are cheap.”
One of the great characteristics of God is that He has great power. For our church to be revitalized we must plug into the power that comes from GOD!
How much God power are you currently using? Throughout His Word we find God using supernatural power to sustain His people, and He still does!
How much God power is your church currently using? God wants to be the power source of your church! God wants His children to plug into the power of His Word. Are you spending time in His Word daily? God wants His children to spend time in prayer. Are you spending time daily talking with Him and listening to Him?
As for you, make a commitment to be in His Word and pray daily. Encourage others in your church to do the same then see how your church responds. You will see a great power from God envelop your church toward revitalization.
