“All authority (all power of rule) has been given to Me”. –Matthew 28:18 (AMPLIFIED)
In ancient times, the prophet Isaiah foresaw a time when the “gods” that the Babylonians worshipped would be hauled away on ox carts, but the carts would turn over, the idols of their gods would fall out and be unable to save themselves from the fall. And if they couldn’t save themselves, how could they ever save their worshippers? (Isaiah 46:1-2 TLB).
The prophet Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal to prove their god ‘s power by presenting a sacrifice. Their so-called god failed to respond, but the Lord consumed Elijah’s sacrifice with fire. The false prophets were executed! (see 1 Kings 18:20-40). What are you trusting in? In a materialistic world, it’s easy for our hearts to be ensnared by money, things, people… King David said that some nations boast of their horses and chariots, but his boast was solely in God (Psalm 20:7). He had a revelation of who God is – the Creator of everything Who sustains it all by the word of His power (Hebrews 1:3, Colossians 1:17). All authority and power of rule has been given to Jesus. And we have that power in us if we have invited the Holy Spirit to abide in us (Acts 1:8, Acts 2:38-39).
Take action: All other “gods” that we trusted in will be shown for what they are – false. Let us place our focus and trust completely and solely on Jesus – the only true source of all power.
