God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
Today's Morsel: I'm amazed at the awesome power of airplanes. Every time I observe a 747, C-5 Galaxy, or B-52 bomber takeoff and land, I sit in awe of these planes ability to lift such huge amount of weight off the ground and fly around the world and back. What gives them such ability to do such? It's the power of the engines.
David said, "God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God." Jesus said, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth" (Matthew 28:18); "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you" (Luke 10:19); "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" (Acts 1:8); and Micah said, "But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin"(Micah 3:8); Paul said, "For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake" (1 Thessalonians 1:5). So what are you doing with your power? Jesus calmed the seas, cast out devils, opened blinded eyes, made the lame to walk, and drew men unto Him. The Holy Ghost is your power to win; your power to be victorious; your power and authority to witness, testify, and to make the captives free. It's your anointing.
Airplanes and jets don't do too much good sitting on the ground or in a hanger. They were designed to fly. They were made to transport, to carry others, and to defend. The Holy Ghost inside of you is more powerful than any plane, train, ship, or rocket. You can sit in the hanger or on the runway and do nothing, or you can get fired up and carry this Gospel to the whole world, defend this truth, and help transport others to the other side. I say it time that we SOAR.
