You Have the Power

Joyce Meyer – Apr 28, 2024
An open Bible ready for reading a daily devotional, sitting in a bed of flowers.

Adapted from Closer to God Each Day

Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.

Far too many believers are fainthearted, weak in determination, and diseased with an “I can’t” attitude. They are plagued with a lack of spiritual power.

You and I don’t have to beg God to give us power. We just need to realize and accept that we have been given power and then walk in what is already ours. We can develop and maintain a “power consciousness”—an aggressive, power-packed attitude.

God has given us spiritual power for spiritual warfare. Spiritual power is released when our faith is firm. When we walk in faith in God, we can approach every situation with an enemy-conquering attitude.

An attitude of confidence will exude from us when we know who we are in Christ, how close He wants to be to us, and the power that the Bible says is ours through faith.

Do you desire to be a powerful believer? Try approaching every situation in your life with a simple, childlike faith—believing that God is good, that He has a good plan for your life, and that He is working in your situation.

Prayer of the Day: Father God, thank You for giving me the power and authority of the name of Jesus. Help me walk boldly in that authority and in the strength of Your conquering name, amen.
