John 1:12 But to all who received Him, who believed in His name, He gave power to become children of God.
One problem we face in the Church today is that many Christians don’t really believe that God can do what He says He can do. We believe what we read in the Bible, but in practice, we don’t trust God to come through on His promises. This fear that God won’t fulfill his promises is a lack of faith in the power of God. On one hand, we believe that God can do all things, and on the other hand when we see situations that look impossible to conquer, we don’t believe He can handle all things.
Beyond that, we don’t believe that we have any power or authority. The Bible says that to all who received Christ, He gave power to become children of God. If Christ gave us power, then we can do all things. Paul said to the Philippians that we could do all things through Christ who gives us strength. If we are truly children of God, then we are not impotent, but very powerful. We have the Creator of all things working through us.
Don’t be afraid to act when God calls you to do something. He won’t ask you to do something that He hasn’t given you the power to do. If you are called to do it, the Lord will equip you for it. He doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called.
