ALL POWER BELONG TO GOD
Psalm 62:11 say God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.
After the Philistines took the ark of God in 1 Samuel 5:1-5, they set it before Dagon their national god. Dagon was a very huge statue. By the time they came back the next morning, they saw this huge statue fallen on its face to the earth before the ark of God. They did not understand, they thought may be a wind blew overnight or the statue was not standing properly so they set in its place again. By the time they came the next morning , the saw Dagon not only fallen on its face to the earth but the head and palms of Dagon broken off on the threshold; only Dagon’s torso was left of it. It was then they knew that, Power exceeds power. There is no power that can be compared to the power of God. It does not matter what name they call it, before God they are nothing. Who is Baal before God? Who is Dagon? When the Lord visited Egypt in Exodus 7:17-21, Hapi –god of Nile began to vomit blood. When Pharaoh continued to harden his heart because he thought he had Hapi, God ensured that Hapi began to vomit frogs! Exodus 8:5-6.
One early morning while I was walking and praying, I saw a man at a particular bus stop shouting and saying some strange words. The only thing I noticed was there were no one standing with him at the bus stop and everyone passing seem to prefer to use the other side of the road. As I approached him he stopped and when I got to him he began to shout again but because I was really busy praying I ignored him and walk past him. After taking five or six steps past him, something arose in me, I began to feel uncomfortable about this man shouting strange words behind me so I decided to go back and tell him to keep quiet in the name of Jesus. As I turned back to go to him we made eye contact and he kept quiet. I stood there waiting for him to speak but he kept quiet. I turned back and began to walk thinking he will continue shouting but he just kept quiet. I walked for another five minutes but he just kept quiet. The man did not keep quiet because of me, actually as a matter of fact if he were to have his way he will probably harm me. This force in this man kept quiet because of the Jesus I serve. The force in the man saw the spirit of God and it kept quiet. John 1:12 says but as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. Every believer has the right to the power of God.
PRAYER POINT: Father , I have received Jesus as my personal Lord and savior , Please give me power.
