John MacArthur (January-27-2023) Daily Devotional: Trusting in God's Power
"I pray that ... you may know ... the surpassing greatness of [God's] power toward us who believe" (Eph. 1:18-19).
The same divine power that created, sustains, and controls the universe secures your salvation.
God’s power is awesome! David wrote, “Thine, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Thine is the dominion, O Lord, and Thou dost exalt Thyself as head over all. Both riches and honor come from Thee, and Thou dost rule over all, and in Thy hand is power and might; and it lies in Thy hand to make great, and to strengthen everyone. Now therefore, our God, we thank Thee, and praise Thy glorious name” (1 Chron.29:11-13).
In Ephesians 1:19 Paul focuses on one key feature of God’s power: His ability to secure the salvation of His people. And he prays for you to understand the surpassing greatness of that truth.
The Greek word translated “power” is dunamis, from which we get dynamite and dynamo. This power is active, dynamic, and compelling—and it is mightily at work on your behalf. You might not always sense it, but it’s there nonetheless.
Peter expresses the same thought in 1 Peter 1:5, where he says you are “protected by the power of God through faith” in Christ. In that verse “protected” means “to keep or guard” and reflects Peter’s confidence that salvation is inviolable.
The same limitless power that created, sustains, and controls the universe saved you and keeps you saved. That’s why Jesus said no one can snatch you out of the Father’s hand (John 10:29). Not even Satan has the power to do that. Paul confidently added that nothing therefore can separate you from God’s love (Rom. 8:38-39). That’s the confidence you should have as you live each day.
Suggestions for Prayer - Pray for greater spiritual enlightenment and a clearer understanding of your security in Christ. Nothing will rob you of your assurance quicker than unconfessed sin. If that has happened to you, confess it immediately and turn from it. Then ask God to restore to you the joy of your salvation.

Bill Winston - Watch Sermon: The Day of GOD's Power - Vengeance and Recompense. You must know that God loves his children and he will not allow his children to be taken advantage of nor abused in any way. This judgment is not your responsibility nor act, it belongs to God and only he can carry it out.
Victoria Osteen - Sermon: God's Power Is Limitless. It's easy to look at things from a natural perspective, but if we limit our options to what we see, we will live a very limited life. I believe God is saying today, "I haven't asked you to walk by sight, I've asked you to walk by faith. I've asked you to remember My great power toward you."
Derek Prince (July-10-2020) Sermon: God's Power In Your Hands.
Bible teacher Derek Prince points out that God’s primary purpose in redemption is a personal relationship with each of the redeemed. The primary requirement of God is to hear God’s voice and keep His covenant. God gives us authority to rule, He gives us His power in our hands.
God has destined us to be Kings and Priests (1 Pet. 2:9; Rev. 1:5–6)
A. Kings rule (Col. 1:13; Rom. 5:17; 2 Cor. 5:21)
1. Fourfold identification is path to the throne (Eph. 2:4–6)
a. Dead with Jesus
b. Buried with Him
c. Resurrected with Him
d. Enthroned with Him
The kingdom is only for priests (1 Pet. 2:5)
1. Ministry of priests: to offer sacrifice
2. Jesus was our pattern (Heb. 5:1; 7:27; 9:14)
a. He offered prayer (Heb. 13:15)
b. He offered Himself by the Spirit to the Father (Heb. 9:14)
3. In return, the believer must likewise offer himself (Rom. 12:1)
4. Jesus continues to intercede in eternity (Heb. 7:24). He shares His burden with those who are called as intercessors.
Each phase of redemption involves all three Persons of the Godhead
Jesus incarnated by Father through Holy Spirit
The Father anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit
Jesus, through the Spirit, offered Himself to the Father
The Father, by the Spirit, raised Jesus from the dead
Jesus received the promise of the Spirit from the Father
Authority Of Godhead And Satan’s Imitation
A. Father/Son on throne (Ps. 110:1–2; Heb. 12:22–24)
B. Rod of Christ’s authority rules over His enemies
A ruler’s rod has his name on it (Num. 17:2)
Three patterns of witchcraft in Old Testament

How to handle the rod

2. Make yourself a freewill offering (Ps. 110:3)
3. Be adorned with holiness
God is assembling an army of young people
Joel Osteen (February-15-2019) Daily Devotion: Tap into God's power.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: ...And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. (Ephesians 3:17–18, NIV)
TODAY'S WORD: You may have things in your life that seem dead—a relationship, a business, your health. Jesus would say to you that He has power over death. God's love can bring that relationship back to life that seems dead to you and take it to an entirely new level. Maybe you feel that you have a "dead-end job," or maybe you think your life is going nowhere and you have no purpose. We want to encourage you today! The same power that raised Jesus from the dead can revitalize your career and put you on a path of success. If you start believing again, God is going to resurrect what you thought was dead. You may have tried and failed, but dreams that you’ve given up on are going to suddenly come back to life. Problems that looked permanent are going to suddenly turn around. God has the final say. He hasn’t changed His mind.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: God, today I will be surrounded by Your favor and no weapon formed against me will prosper. You have power over death and I believe that transformative power can bring hope, peace, joy, and fulfillment to my life. In Jesus' Name - Amen.
