Confession: I’ve never seen an entire Star Wars movie. (Hard to believe, right?! It’s on my bucket list for when I can really sit down and focus on it!) But May 4 always reminds me of power!
God’s Force lives in us!
I’m grateful for that power because in the last 24 hours, it has helped me forgive a nasty comment someone made about me, choose to overlook a sin committed toward me and respond with grace instead of anger toward one of my children.
Here’s a short list of some of my favorite Bible verses that talk about God’s power.
What will you do with the power that lives in you today?
with a strong hand and an outstretched arm,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
It is he who made the earth by his power,
who established the world by his wisdom,
and by his understanding stretched out the heavens.
The LORD your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
1 Corinthians 6:14
And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.
2 Corinthians 13:4
For he was crucified in weakness, but lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but in dealing with you we will live with him by the power of God.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
