Power Belongs to God! by Minister Teraleen R. Campbell
I am so glad that I can state emphatically, that the Word of the Lord is true! Not that I ever doubted, but already this week, I've been tested by a situation on which I praised and continued to believe God for change. My beloved mother, who is a miracle in so many ways, having survived the death angel knocking at her door in 2010, enduring 7 surgeries, was taken to the hospital on her birthday.
The first report indicated possible surgery. Understanding that an additional surgery would be high risk, I grew more concerned. After nearly losing my composure while working off site, I recalled being admonished by my Associate Pastor, Bishop T. Cedric Brown at the end of Sunday's service. He instructed us to remain focused as we went throughout the week. The sermon on Sunday told us that God was with us in whatever we're going through and that He will turn things around. With this in mind, I stole away to say a quick word of prayer, and apply the blood Jesus Christ our Savior over the situation. Although my mind was still filled with concern, I proceeded with my workday. My mother and I do not reside within the same local area, so I was awaiting word from another family member.
A few hours later, the victory report came. The indicating tests showed nothing major. Mom was being released back to the nursing home to relax the rest of the evening. Thank you Jesus for yet another victory!
This latest situation serves as yet another reminder. God's power reigns and He indeed does have the final say. I know that so many friends, loved ones and acquaintances are going through a variety of situations. Some are unemployed, while others are underemployed, or wondering what the government is going to do with furloughs. Some are awaiting the manifestation of a promise or dream to come true. Others are keeping hope alive for the healing for themselves or a loved one. I simply want to remind you of the greatness of our God.
Just know, as Isaiah wrote in 54:17, while the weapon may form, it won't prosper. Why? Because God said so! More importantly, our God has the power to back up what He says.
Psalm 62:11 puts it this way – “….power belongs to God.”
In the words of Israel & New Breed, and if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us? And if our God is with us then what could stand against? Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other. Our God is healer, awesome in power - our God!
Or if Hezekiah Walker works better for you, remember there is nothing too hard for God. Power belongs to God!
