God’s Power

August 24, 2008 at 6:30 pm (dream, goals, power, vision)

I have been studying from Acts 2 lately, and preached there this morning. One of the things I talked about was how the church was born with power.

Why don’t we see the power of God anymore? This question has eaten at my soul for almost four years! I still remember when one of my professors asked us that in class. I have read through the book of Acts and have seen that people were attracted to the church because the church was full of boldness and power. Why don’t we see it anymore?

This is the best answer I can come up with: Perhaps it is because we don’t need God’s power! Everything we try to do, every program we run, every idea we develop, WE can do in our own strength and wisdom and power! We don’t need God’s power to accomplish the things we are trying to do. We are strong enough on our own!

We need to dream bigger! We need to set goals higher! We need to set out to do things that can only happen if God’s power is flowing through it!

Denton, hold on to your seats! We are not only going to to Dare to Dream big, we are going to dream HUGE! And we are going to try and do things that will most certainly fall on their face if God is not a part of it! But we know that we serve a God with whom “all things are possible” and who can “do more than we can even ask or imagine!” So, get ready for an adventure of faith, as we seek God’s power and prescence to accomplish God’s mission in our community!

    Very true. Much of what I’ve been feeling and studying says a lot of what you just said. We don’t need God when we do it ourselves. We can push Him aside and settle for what we can provide for ourselves. If we only gave it over to Him and allowed Him to give us something bigger, it would be incredible to see. I’ll check back here often for more stuff. Peace.
