Those who have power with God naturally prevail among men (Genesis 32:29). ‘And he said, let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. 27 And he said unto him, what is thy name? And he said, Jacob. 28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
For every soul must subject to the higher power for there is no power but of God (Romans 13:1)
When you are in possession of the higher power the lesser power submits to you. For life is basically a contest of powers, your power base determines your level of influence and authority! When you increase in power you increase in influence and authority!
We are in the days of his Power and in the day of his power, all authority and influence shall return to the church (Psalm 110:1-3)!
The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth ‘
Nothing will harass our destinies again all because of power (Psalm 66:3).
And the highest display of God's power was wrought on the cross and at the resurrection when the blood of his Son was shed for our redemption! It was described as the "exceeding greatness of his power"(Ephesians 1:17-20).
‘That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places’
This was the power Paul so long to understand! This power was procured on the platform of the BLOOD! And so, the greatest power in the world is the power in the blood
After all kinds of signs and wonders and powers were wrought in Egypt and still, Pharaoh will not let go, the last resort was the blood! When the blood came on the scene the resistance of Pharaoh was broken. This week whatever has resisted your breakthrough for long is taking out of the way! When the blood came on the scene the devil was taking off his stride.
‘And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death.’ (Revelations 12:11).
By the blood, we have access to this same power for there are three that bears witness in heaven and all of them are the same(1 John 5:8)
‘8 And there are three that bear witness on earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. 9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
By his blood, he delivered to us POWER. ‘Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing’ (Revelation 5:12)
This day you will walk in that power! Appropriate the power in that blood to whatever situation you are faced with right now and write me to share your testimony! Amen!
