That Incredible Power within us

The most incredible power in the universe has been extended to the earth for use by those who dare to take it up.

It’s already here

There is a massive concentration of the most incredible power in the universe manifested in those who are Christ’s. “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” (1Cor. 6:17)

That SPIRIT/POWER is at work in us. We need only to think, let alone ask. “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,” (Eph. 3:20)

That POWER is at our disposal. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:12-14)

That POWER enables us to carry out our purpose. “And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matt. 28:18-20)

That POWER is evident because of what we do and also provides protection. "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." (Mark 16:17.18)

Our dominion restored

And as if that is not enough POWER, here’s the real clincher. Being reconciled to God and being one with Him, we once again have dominion over all the earth – even able to subdue it, such as taking control of the weather elements and calling for rain where it is needed.

Gen 1:26. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Gen. 1:27. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
Gen. 1:28. “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

And if that is not convincing enough, here’s confirmation of that dominion POWER. “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” (Mark 11:23”

If His faith is in us – and it is because we are one spirit - we only need to say it, say it, say it.

That’s the dominion side of POWER. It requires word action from our side.

Believe and receive

Then there are the things we desire personally, which do not fall under the dominion-power category. “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11:24)

That’s the prayer side of POWER for having personal desires met. It requires prayer and belief, belief, belief.

All we need to do is to remain conscious of who and what we are in Christ. We will never be perfect, but guess who is perfect? – Christ in us. Constant awareness of this fact should be enough for us to abide in Him. “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7)

We are free, free, free. “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)

No need to beg and plead

So what is the bottom line to all of this? We need to stop crying to God in beggarly fashion. We need to start believing instead of hoping. We need to start being what He has made us – and that is dominion-powered, faith-driven sons and daughters of God.

We are co-heirs with Christ in the here and now. All the cattle on a thousand hills belong to Him and therefore to us. Every inch of land above sea level is a hill and we have dominion over it. All power (authority) has been given to Him in heaven AND in earth, THEREFORE, we are EMPOWERED by His presence within us. There is absolutely nothing greater than what we already have.

Do we need rain? Let’s call those rain clouds to gather where we need them in the name of Jesus and bring down the rain.

Do we have personal needs and even desires? Let’s ask in prayer and believe that we have what we ask for at that very moment.

We need to follow the example of that centurion in Matthew 8 and hear Jesus saying the same thing about us. “When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.” (Mt 8:10)

Let’s cause Jesus to marvel at us too.
