But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. (John 1:12 NKJV)
Have you ever wanted to become something that you are not? Have you ever said, “If only I could be strong in faith and free from fear. If only I would do certain things.” Jesus has given us all power to do and power to become anything that He is—in all our circumstances.
Once I received some heavy criticism from a pastor in our city. I was so angry that I wanted to tell him off immediately. But the Lord said this: “How should you treat your enemies?” I admitted that the Word days we should pray for them, do good to them, and bless them. And God said, “THAT is the very way I want YOU to treat your enemy.”
I replied, “That may be the way YOU treat Your enemies. But I can’t.” He said, “Yes, you can. You have Jesus. You have the power to become like Me.”
I began to bless that pastor with my mouth. He later invited me to be a guest speaker in his church. When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes one’s enemies to be at peace with him.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We pray that TODAY we will enter into what You have for us. We will walk in the power and anointing of Jesus Christ. We will know that in us is Jesus—doing all the work.
In His Name,
