Today Reminder - 14 February 2012 (God's power)

My prayer for you for today is that you will know that Jesus is in you and that you have God’s power living in you, in Jesus Name.

2 Corinthians 13:3-4
I will give you all the proof you want that Christ speaks through me. Christ is not weak when He deals with you; He is powerful among you. Although He was crucified in weakness, He now lives by the power of God. We, too, are weak, just as Christ was, but when we deal with you we will be alive with Him and will have God's power.

God’s power. Once upon a time not so long ago, in a country not so far away lived a little battery with his mom and dad. All the other kids always made fun of him, because he looked so different. He would often come home upset that he did not know why he was so different, and he would almost always ask his parents why he was not like the other kids. His dad would always smile and say “You were made for a special purpose, my son. Just be patient.”

Time went by and the little battery grew up. He got a job working at the power plant where he was responsible for client queries. One day, a bright and beautiful day, there was a huge accident. A very big and old tractor lost control and crashed into the main power line building. This caused the whole city to be without power, as well as the hospital where there were many sick people. When the little battery heard this on the phone from a very concerned client, he knew he must do something. Inside he heard a little voice, but not so little, calling him. He was amazed that he could hear it. The little voice said “My power is in you.” He knew immediately that this was the voice of the master power generator of the world. He ran to the city as fast as he could, as he reached the city, he ran to the hospital as fast as he could, as he reached the hospital, he ran to the intensive care unit as fast as he could. Standing outside he took the power lines in his hands and within, but strangely flowing out of him was unlimited power filling the whole room and finally the whole hospital and finally the whole city. 

The little battery knew then, as he now knew so well that even if he looks funny and round on the outside, inside of him is so much more than the normal eye can see, but when he opens his eyes and touches someone, they can feel it.
Although He was crucified in weakness He now lives by the power of God, as He lives in you, you are filled with this amazing gift. 

God is calling you, He loves you so much and does not want you to feel that you are not important to Him. He wants to restore you, build you up and give you strength. He is the master power generator and His power flows through us. I pray that wherever you are and whatever you are facing, that God will give you His power to face your troubles and that you will find Him and restore your faith and that His love and peace will flow through you.

My dear little battery, you are more than what you see. Have an awesome day!
