Power


I know to some of my readers when they would first read this title( Power) they would think that I am writing about the power of God. In a way I am writing about Gods awesome power, but I am also writing about the power we all allow other people, spirits or beings to have over us or our lives. Before I get into this subject, I have long discovered that men and women are truly different. Most women wear their hearts on their sleeves and carry their emotions with them. In other words when a woman gets hurt, used or abused it usually takes them longer than men to get over it.Some hold onto their hurt or what ever that has happen to them in their past for many months or years. Its a known fact that some women have been known to carry their hurt or pain through out their entire lives. Men on the most part hurt to, but get over their feelings or emotions quicker.Most men accept what is and move on. When God first made man he put that particular strength into the male D.N.A or genes. Men were created to be strong and women were created to be their helpmates.The thing that both share or have in common is that the devil doesn't care who is strong or weak and he will seek to destroy whoever crosses his path. He will exercise his power and use who ever he chooses just to get the job done. That is where the power of God our Father in Heaven and his son Jesus Christ comes into play. If we trust only in him through prayer no man, woman, demon or devil can ever have power over us again.

For some who may think that the devil, his demons or other people don't have power over them, please answer these questions honestly. Is your life perfect, without stress, drama or pain? Does your family members, friends, ex-spouse or co-worker tell you, sometime tell how you should live your life?Do you sometimes allow them to make decisions for you, even though you don't agree with their choices? Are you even close to your own family or friends? If you ever been divorced or in a relationship, ask yourself this question, Are you over the pain, the suffering or do you still carry some of the emotional baggage that brought you so much pain? Before you answer this last question, one thought should come to mind, if I am really over him, her or my past why am I still talking it or thinking about my past relationships? Why am I still discussing what happen to me with a family member, friends and even the person that I am interested in? The reason why I ask these questions is because many of us fool ourselves by thinking that we are ready for something new and not realizing that some of us aren't really emotionally healed.

 The reason why is because some of our issues are not only with our past relationships or marriages, but also with our own family. Many of us still hold grudges, won't speak or even want to be around our own family members and as much as many of us would like to think ,our minds are not at peace because of it. No one can be truly healed, have peace with themselves or with God until they get over these issues. Why because we allow the enemy or others to have power over us.We don't deal with our problems or issues right away, instead carry our burdens with us without releasing them and leaving them in the capable hands of God. This is how the devil or others gain power, because we allow them to have that over us. We don't forgive those that have hurt us and some of us still allow our ex, husbands, wives, girlfriends or boyfriends to have access to our lives. That is why I am encouraging anyone who is blessed enough to read this, to release their burdens and allow the Power of God to flow through their lives.Imagine this strong God fearing families and married people that love God working together as one, using the power of God to ward off their enemies. If they did then no man, woman, child or devil will ever have Power over them or their families again.
May God continue to bless you always,
Charles

Romans 1:4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

  1. Speaking from personal experiences I once allowed family and spouse to control me. I always wanted to please others and not do the things that I needed to do for myself. I was totally lost and looking for acceptance. It took me years of suffering, crying at night and being miserable on the inside while faking happiness on the outside not wanting anyone to know what I was going through. I endured a lot and one day I accepted the fact that I was trying to please man. I began praying for strength, forgiveness for those that hurt me and release of my pain and suffering. It didn't happen over night but God was always with me. The end of 2012 I prayed to God to release me, I needed a change in my life, a new beginning. I prayed for and forgave those that was making my life miserable and I let them go in God's hand. I have peace and joy and sleep well at night not regretting my decisions. I am looking forward to a brighter future and take the things that happened in the past as life experiences that I learn from but leave them in the past. I depend on God and wait upon Him.
