God is not powerless (just because in the lives of the disobedient, it appears that God is impotent), nor does God perform magic to a jeering crowd of spectators, (at the whim of the prophets sceptre).
God’s supernatural intervention in the lives of men and women is not to be likened to the scheming manipulations of men.
So let’s set the record straight.
Let’s replace any and every erroneous thought that we have had or have about God with thoughts that produce sound doctrine.
1. The power of God is available and operating in the lives of men and women, teens, children and even the unborn. All to the glory of God, for the purpose of empowering His saints to overcome the world and serve God with a holy life.
2. God is not genie-like and performs no magic, but God is all powerful and performs magnificent miracles at His discretion, (all for the glory of God and to benefit God’s finest and foremost creation, you and I.)
3. You who have been born again by the Spirit of God are not broken beyond repair, but you are empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit within you, not only for the sake of receiving the gift of eternal life, but also to make you able to withstand the firey darts of the wicked one and to be able to stand firm in the faith against all odds.
4. You are not self-sustaining, but ever in need of substance created for us by God. You are ever in need of God and God’s creation to sustain your life and spirit.
No one is self-sustaining.
