God grants His authority to those whose hearts are fully committed to Him. We eagerly seek the Lord in order to receive power and authority from Him. His eyes are focused upon those who seek Him sincerely. He desires to grant His power and authority to such of them.
The Bible says, “The eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are carefully committed to Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9). Our desire to seek God should be like the experience of king David who says, “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, O God” (Psalm 42:1).
We ought to eagerly seek the power and blessings of God. The Lord has focused His eyes upon all those who ask Him with great thirst. The Scripture says, “Indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep” (Psalm 121:4). Our Lord is able to protect us; He neither slumbers nor sleeps.
When we seek our parents for our worldly needs, they are unable to give us all our needs at all times. However, our heavenly Father is waiting to give us His power at any time. Even if we cry out to Him during the night, He will be glad to answer our prayers. The Scripture says, “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and…He went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with Him” (Acts 10:38).
Dearly beloved in Christ! It is our duty to ask for this power from the Lord. Then He will be with us all the time just as He was with the Lord Jesus. The Lord who promised is faithful; He will certainly give His power to those who are committed to Him. All authority in the earth as well as in heaven has been given to Him (Matthew 28:18). Today, let us receive this authority from Him.
God has sent His only begotten Son Jesus into this earth only for this purpose. He has many names such as a Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). Let us ask Him with a longing in order to inherit His power. May the prayer of Jacob be our prayer as well, "Lord! I will not let You go unless You bless me!"
Lord Jesus said, “…your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32). As you are a child of God, He is delighted to give you the power and authority that belongs to His kingdom so that you could do exploits for Him. Receive them through your faith in Him.
Loving Lord Jesus,
Power and authority belongs to You. I seek Your Kingdom and righteousness. Grant me all the blessings that belong to Your Kingdom. Fill me with the Holy Spirit and empower me to do great things for Your glory.
In Your matchless name I pray.
