You Want Power
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”—2 Corinthians 12:9
We all want power. Power is a means of getting want we want. We especially want power when we feel powerless. In fact, when we feel powerlessness or see others experience a state of powerlessness, we are compelled to want power for them. But we need to consider this "feeling." Often we "feel" this state is unjust, undeserving, or unfair. And therefore we want to exert willpower to remove ourselves from this state or save others from it. But could this be the wrong reaction? Could powerlessness be precisely what God wants? Could we be playing God as we attempt to "rescue" self and others from this apparent feeling? Might we be getting in the way of God and reinforcing enablement? In some cases, I think the answer is "yes." Why? Because God's power is "made perfect in weakness."
DO THIS: Don't get in the way of God's power, it's not worth it.
PRAYER: God, reveal your power, and let me not get in your way. Be perfect!
