TODAY'S MANNA for Saturday, June 30, 2018
The sound and fury of power
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."
1 Corinthians 1:18-19 New King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
The sound of fury and power! Mankind loves power. We love the sound and fury of power, especially when it is at work for us. We love the ability to change things that having power brings. But think about the power that was held back when Almighty God's only begotten Son was persecuted and murdered on the Cross so we could be saved. Too many people stop right there and think "I'm saved, that means I'm going to heaven", and fail to realize the full and awesome power released through the Cross that day over 2000 years ago, and then the exponential power release 3 days later at the resurrection, when the rest of God's power through the Holy Spirit was released. The resurrection, that's the greatest power ever unleashed on this earth and just think what it made available to us. My Bible says: "But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you." (Romans 8:11) Quicken your mortal body, make it healed and healthy and whole and full of life! Salvation is a package deal, why would anyone want to remove just one item from the gift box they received and be satisfied when the box is full of many more gifts! What about our healing, our prosperity, freedom from bondage and depression, our deliverance from all the works of the devil. ALL these are there in that same gift box from God also. So many denominations stop at just being saved and going to heaven someday. But, Jesus bought ALL of God’s gifts for us when He went to Hell in our place and defeated the Devil. It's part of the package deal. Now that's an awesome display of power.
Holy and Majestic Father on high, I praise You for Your incredible might and power. But I also thank You for Your love, mercy, and grace which guides the release of that power. Thank You for helping me to realize that I am but as the dust of the earth without Your sustaining Spirit. Thank You for saving me by withholding Your mighty judgmental power so I could be pardoned by the mercy and grace of Your sacrificial power. That because I was washed in the Blood of Your Holy Son Jesus, I am now cleansed and righteous before You. Thanks Dad, for not giving me what I deserved, but Love, Grace, and Mercy instead. Through blood of Jesus I offer this prayer.
