Need Power? We’ve got Dynamite! Colossians 1:11-12 “We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul- not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the ‘glory-strength’ God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that He has for us.” (The Message) So how do we get this power? Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of this Good News ( The Gospel) about Christ. It is the POWER (translated from the Greek word for dynamite) of God at work…”(NLT) God’s good news, His Word is the dynamite! His Word is how we can have the ‘Glory-Strength’ that God gives. Psalms 119:105-114 “Your Word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path…Your decrees are my treasure, they are truly my hearts delight…You are my refuge and my shield; Your Word is my only source of hope.” When we need God given, Glory-Power, we can have it through His Word. God speaks to us there.
Have you got “grim” strength? We have DYNAMITE!!!
