The Potential For Greater Power In You – Beloved Women – February 28, 2020
READ: “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” (John 14:12-13 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: Are you sitting behind a desk pushing papers and answering calls all day wondering if this is even making an eternal difference? Perhaps your 9 to 5 is tripping over toddlers as you try to tidy up the house and run errands. Or maybe your days are spent studying and filling out job applications. No matter where you find yourself at work today, Jesus reminds us of the magnitude of power believers hold in their hands, their words, and footsteps.
In John 14, Jesus says He is going to be with the Father so that we can not only do the works Jesus did on earth, but greater works even.
Today, you hold incredible power in whatever it is Jesus has called you to. Whether it’s parenting, sitting behind a computer, or being a neighbor and friend, you have magnificent power behind all that you do! You can walk with your head a little higher, your feet secure, and use your words to encourage others knowing there is great power at play.
PRAY: Jesus, I see You on the throne advocating for me. I can’t diminish what You’ve called me to do when Your word tells me You are doing an even greater work through me. I trust You to guide my time and talents for the glory of Your name. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
REFLECT: Do you find yourself downplaying the kind of power you hold in Jesus because of your profession, your age, or your location? What would your problems look like if you answered them with this promise?
