So often I sung the lyrics to this song in choir at many services in front of thousand of people yet not understanding the full meaning and magnitude behind the truth of the words. Leading children’s choir for years and even signing with my own children, I still didn’t understand until recently the depth of what the lyrics really meant. Once my Father showed me the truth behind the lyrics, it changed my perspective and my thought life completely. If you understand and receive this revelation. It too can change your life.
As many times that I sang these lyrics or similar lyrics, I sang them but didn’t really understand the magnitude of the truth. It wasn’t until one day, not too long ago, when I was reading a book that God revealed this truth. The interesting part is that I sang these words so many times. Yet, when I read the words from an author, it gave me chills. I had an “Ah Ha Moment”… All the strength and power that I need, is already within me. I am Powerful!
“The same Power that conquered the grave lives in me, Your love that rescued the earth lives in me”. -Hillsong (You are Here The Same Power)
The Same Power.
L.A.W. (Ladies After Wisdom), I want you to stop and think on the lyrics to the song above. Read it Again and Again and Again until it penetrates your mind, heart and soul. If you are a believer, the same power, which is God himself, the Creator of all lives inside you. The One who created the sun, moon, stars, the Power that raised Christ and created you lives on the inside of you. To take it even deeper, the One who spoke things into existence, the One who calmed raging seas, lives inside you! Do you know what that means? It means you are POWERFUL!
Powerful? you might ask. Yes Powerful! You have the power to overcome any addiction, circumstance, heartache. You have the power to overcome depression, anxiety and poverty. You have the power to create a life you truly desire. You have all the power you need right within you to achieve your goals and ambitions. Girl, You are powerful!! Aquilla, but I don’t feel like I do? Whats does feelings have to do with it? Just because you don’t feel it, doesn’t mean its not the truth. Believe in God and also in yourself. I love you. All is well.
18 I pray that God will open your minds to see his truth. Then you will know the hope that he has chosen us to have. You will know that the blessings God has promised his holy people are rich and glorious. 19 And you will know that God’s power is very great for us who believe. It is the same as the mighty power 20 he used to raise Christ from death and put him at his right side in the heavenly places. -Ephesians 1:18-20 ERV
Read: Ephesians 1:18-20, Romans 8:11
Affirmation: The Same Power that created the universe lives in me. I am powerful!
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your love, grace and mercy. Each day You reveal to me just how wonderful You are. Father, thank You for the revelation of Your power living within me. At times, I feel incapable of completing the tasks and dreams that you have placed on my heart. However, now I realize that I am powerful. I can do whatever I set out to do because you live within me. Help me Father to continually tap into, listen and use that power to overcome, remain faithful and to live an abundant life. Father, I love you.
In Jesus Name, Amen
