POWER IS AVAILABLE! by Elaine Davenport July 15, 2012

I was in a desperate situation. I was a young woman out on my own.  Even though I was a good person, I made a simple decision which turned out to be a bad one and within minutes my whole life and my future was in danger!  There was nothing that I could do…and there was no one that could help…except God!  All that I could do was pray…and I had to do it so that no one would know.  I was in a dangerous situation.  The power of God came down to where I was and to many other places.  Angels were dispensed to guide and protect me.  The amazing thing is that the power never left.  I sincerely wish that I could tell you more…but the most important thing is that you know that when you pray…power is available to you…and it  will come forth.    I have no strength, but God can strengthen me to do whatever needs to be done!   Fact.

Analogy..(in the natural) .I was driving on an icy winter road this past winter.  I went to put on brakes…it seemed like my car was not responding…I could not see anything happening.  I actually wondered if the car would spin out.  But, everything was under control.  The car did not spin out.  I did not lose control.  The ice did not get the best of us.   However, I had to wait til it was all over to know this.

Same circumstance…I prayed…I asked God to protect us.  After all, I was driving across town to see about my 90 year old aunt who was dying.  The minute that I sent the prayer power was released.  All I had to do was ignore the circumstances and know that God had it all under control. 

Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Psalms 62:11 God  has spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongs unto God.

Psalms 21:13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

The power of God has been present since the beginning of the world!  There can be no miracles, signs and wonders without the power of God.  My life can’t change, my prayers cannot be answered without God’s power.  It is critical.  No one else has this.  This power  is available to ever believer and follower of Jesus ChristPower from on high.  As you read through the bible and read of miracle after miracle…you better know that the POWER of GOD is at work.  That power is available for many reasons.  It is how God works.  So I invite you to egin to search the scriptures to know of the power of God beyond a certainty.

The One Message We Do Not Want To Give! by E. Davenport January 31, 2012

With all the praying I do, with all the preaching I hear, with all of the good works, with all of the faith…1 Corinthians has bitten me far too often!

 

Father God, I repent…for today in the most stressful circumstances…I failed You.  No, I didn’t blow up, I didn’t act badly, I thought badly in my heart.  No, it was not about hurting anyone; yet when I thought less of people who had a chip on their shoulder’s or people who were under stress or people who do no0t understand You…ir judged them…I failed.  Give me another opportunity to make it right.  I put my whole trust in You in the Authority and Love and image of Jesus Christ my Savior.  Amen

 

I am admitting it.  Here it is:

 

1 Corinthians 13

1 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

 

We cannot ever afford to miss an opportunity to love…or show compassion…lest we hinder people and leave them blind.  Next time, I will not miss it! 

 

You see…the world expects the Christians to miss it.  They see us as hypocrites!   We talk the talk but too often we don’t walk the walk!  One of the thing that hurts us as a group is that there are a lot of “nice and good people who DO NOT go to church and there are a lot of not so nice and “sometimes” bad people who DO GO to church.  So this challenge has t be included in our prayers!  Please…

 

My dear friend Valerie Hutchinson has a ministry focused on Love and she teaches it to the Body of Believers!   That’s an on time message!

The one message that we do not want to give is that our love IS NOT unconditional!
