My daily journaling from God’s Word. SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Psalm 62.
“God has spoken plainly, and I have heard it many times: Power, O God, belongs to You.” –Psalm 62:11
People are in pursuit of power–political power, economic power–anything to be in control of others. But the power belongs to God. He is the true authority. Our human “power trips” are simply exerting our own sinful selves.
How does God show His power? By His creation, His power over nature, His judgements, and His resurrection from the dead. Modern man seeks to undermine God’s power through evolution and denying His judgments.
Willingly submit to God’s authority and obey His commands. But even more, be a vessel through which God can show His power to a doubting and skeptical world.
Father, I believe You desire to show Yourself strong and powerful to a lost, doubting and confused world. Show Your power and strength through me! Confound the skeptics! Give me Your wisdom and knowledge that no one can refute or contradict. Transform me, provide for me, answer my prayers in such a way that Your power will be clearly seen!
For Your glory alone! Amen.
