Loaded but powerless!



     A man stood before a million people congregation and shouted at the top of his voice and nobody heard him nor gave him audience. Stunned and confused, he encouraged himself to shout the more, because he was convinced that he had something to offer which the people must hear but he was denied audience. This illustrates the pathetic situation of a man of substance, yet poor. Prov. 19:7 "All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? He pursues them with words, yet they are wanting to him."Can you imagine? He pursues them with his substances yet they run from him. He had no audience, and no family. A poor man is an orphan. A comparative study between the wealthy and the poor in the same chapter verse four concludes, and I quote "wealth makes many friends but the poor is separated from his neighbor." End of quote. Everything rises and falls on the poor. His presence is a taboo to all. His people object to him and his ideas. He's a decision taker not maker. He has no voice in the la
           
Power is supernatural and dynamism in operation. The place of power cannot be overemphasized. Power makes things happen. You will amount to nothing without power. Your effort will yield no profit without power. Your life, ministry, business, pursuit and project will suffer finance and sponsorship without power. Your gift and everything you carry will remain eternally dormant without power. Power is everything! Your effort, knowledge, skill, wisdom, opportunity, potential, gift, talent, strategy and resources invested will not yield any increase, profit or reward without the supernatural power of God behind it.  Silver and gold, naira and kobo, dollars and pound sterling, euro and other currency answers to power.., for it is he that gives You POWER to get wealth... Deut. 8:18.

Peter had nothing, no skill, no training but the name of Jesus. Think of how many millions out there calling the name of Jesus without effects. But for the power of God in the life of Peter made the difference (Acts 3). Power commands the attention of people and their resources. Think of how many talented, gifted, intelligent, powerful orators and writers you know but have nothing to show for it. So, it'll be correct to say, it is not what you have that matters but the power behind it. It's not what you carry..but the Power.  It's not how skilled, gifted, talented, good, creative, innovative you are but the supernatural that breathes life upon it. Power distinguished the rod of Moses and Aaron from other rods. Therefore, I declare as the Oracle of God; henceforth, anything and everything you have or do for a living is empowered in Jesus name. Your potential, skill, gift, talent, knowledge and performance will begin to command the attention of people, resources, finances and sponsorship in Jesus name. Amen.
