Yielding to divine strength is the ultimate spiritual antidote for overcoming both spiritual and personal failure in our lives and affairs. Divine strength is none other than God operating through the consciousness of man. Through divine strength, a believer has absolute power and control over the kingdom of darkness. No impossibilities exist in God. All good things gravitate toward him. If a believer’s life is constantly plagued with lack and limitation, depression, poverty and anguish, he is certainly not operating in the power of God.
Divine strength attracts the spiritual and natural resources necessary to thrive in this present life. God intended for each believer to experience an abundant life here on earth. The abundant life consists of joy, peace and a sense of being unstoppable in executed the plan of God for our lives. Walking in divine strength enhances our circle of influence in whatever territory we enter. Therefore, when we forsake our own strength for that of God, we change. No longer will disappointment and depression overcome us. No longer will sickness, diseases and other threatening conditions intimidate us. The kingdom of darkness is no match for those who walk in divine strength.
Walking in God’s strength requires releasing our intellect as well as our religious habits and routines of just going through the motions. Acquiring divine strength takes sincerity, commitment and diligence. Our own intellect gets in the way of God’s plan for our lives time and time again. We attempt to figure out how God will work out conditions in our lives when we see no way out ourselves. Sometimes we even attempt to help God out, but often find failure lurking behind the corner. The fact is that the strength of God goes beyond reason or intellect. Instead, such strength is demonstrated in faith. We must believe that God can execute His will through us if we allow Him. And if we don’t allow him, we will not experience divine strength.
Releasing our religious habits and routines means going beyond the process of churching. Churching includes the routine of faithfully attending church multiple times during the week and forever participating in every program and function inspired by the spiritual officials in the church. Millions of believers follow these habits and routines but never seem able be to walk in the divine strength when adversity strikes their spiritual and personal lives. Instead they fall into fear, depression or anger toward God for allowing this to happen to them. Many believers think because of their avid church attendance and participation that are immune from lack and limitation, fear, depression, sickness and diseases and other tribulations that torment man.
However, believers must understand that the habit of churching cannot replace the activity of walking in divine strength. Only the strength of God can alleviate poverty, fear and limitations. Excessive churching interferes with developing divine strength. Time and patience in a quiet environment is required to development God’s power. In silence, God’s strength enlarges within us day after day, releasing the beauty of God within our surroundings.
In order to obtain God’s strength we must submit ourselves totally to God by means of prayer, meditation in scripture, and a never ending gratitude. Also we must believe all things are possible without reservation. If we refuse the consciousness that the Christ within us is beyond impossibilities, we cannot acquire the divine power needed to overcome the kingdom of darkness that attempts to wreck our lives and affairs. Prayer empowers us with God’s strength, the more we pray the more His strength is enhanced within us. The Apostles and prophets of old prayed with such depth and conviction that miraculous events became natural occurrences. The sick were healed, the captives were delivered and the dead were raised. No entrapment could contain these powerful men of God because of fervent prayer. Deep, continuous prayer unleashes the power and might of God into our personal atmosphere, causing transformation in every area of our lives, including relationships, finances, businesses as well as decision making and attitude.
Meditation builds the wisdom and knowledge of God within our consciousness. When our consciousness is imbued with the wisdom and knowledge of God we become unstoppable because we are aware of the truth. The kingdom of darkness can no longer deceive us. We become free in our hearts, souls and mind. We operate in the strength of God. The deep knowledge and wisdom of God penetrates of the walls of the dark kingdom. This occurs because spiritual consciousness is the eyes of God and His eyes uncover the deceptions and activities of Satan and his demonic host operating within our lives. Therefore we are able to best him by overcoming his plan an attacks.
We must forsake our own strength if we are serious about being a major cause in the kingdom of God. Operating in our own strength is a curse, leading to spiritual failure, joyless existence, and continuous torment from the kingdom of darkness. Above all, we will fail to please God. So considering such unfortunate events, we must strive to acquire God’s divine strength in all areas of our lives. If we do, one thing is guaranteed: We will not be disappointed.
