Are you worried or dishearten when others scoff at the power of the Word of God? There are those who’s hobby it is, to try and dispute the Bible with you.
Be filled with God's wisdom. Do not cast your seeds on bad ground. Instead, save it for the fertile soil that will be presented to you.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
Arguing With A Former Preacher
Recently, a former preacher was “arguing” with me about the origins of the Bible and that it’s all of man and so on. There are so many points they can raise against the Bible, if you wish to listen to them.
I said nothing but instead prayed for him. You see, sometimes we can study so much, that we begin to see things carnally, rather than being guided by the Holy Spirit.
Just about one week ago, he related to me incidents when the Lord would speak to him, and show him signs and wonders. As I listened to him, I smiled and said “Can you explain these things logically?”. Of course, he couldn’t.
The Power Of A Personal Relationship
I told him, in the same way, although it may seem logical that the Bible is man-made, I can only believe what has been revealed to me in my heart.
When you have a personal relationship with the Lord, the signs and wonders are revealed to you that totally defy logic. That is what your faith is built upon. That is the source of our power.
So don’t be discouraged. Preach the Gospel. Spread the Word. Do the bidding of the Lord, because wisdom has been granted onto you! But remember: Have a blessed day/night!
1 Timothy 6:20 Timothy, protect what has been given to you in trust. Avoid godless and pointless discussions and the contradictory claims of so-called “knowledge.”
Prayer To Be Filled with God's Power and Wisdom
Almighty God, I humbly come before You, seeking the infusion of Your divine power and wisdom in my life. In a world that often leaves me feeling powerless and confused, I need the strength and guidance that only You can provide.
Fill me with Your Holy Spirit, that I may be empowered to face life's challenges and to make decisions that honor You.
Grant me the wisdom that is from above, wisdom that is pure, peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. Let this wisdom guide my thoughts, my words, and my actions, and let Your power be evident in my life.
Ephesians 3:16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.
James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
Prayer for Courage, Power and Boldness
Heavenly Lord, with Your power and wisdom, grant me the courage and boldness to stand firm in my faith and convictions. Let me not be swayed by the shifting tides of popular opinion, but be steadfast in upholding Your truth and righteousness.
In the face of opposition, criticism, or challenge, embolden me to speak Your truth in love. Let Your power working in me inspire confidence and boldness to be a witness for You in all areas of my life.
Lord, fill me with Your power and wisdom, that I may live a life that glorifies You in every way. In every situation, let me be a testament to the transformative power of Your grace and truth. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
1 Corinthians 16:13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
