The only language the devil understands is that of power. We are in the era of power. Without the power that works in you, Christianity will be a mere religion.
The bible says, in Psalms 66:3 (KJV)Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. So without power, men will degrade the gospel. It took God’s power for Pharaoh to submit and let go of the Israelites. Darkness has no respect for title, education, money or background; only the power of God. You need power to subdue the forces of darkness. If you lose power, you lose influence. The entire world lies in darkness and in the midst of your enemies, God wants you to rule; your destiny, career, even in business, you need power to be established.

Bible says, in 2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. This explains that you have a role in the operations of the miraculous and supernatural in your life. The glory of God is manifested in your life according to the power that works in you. You can trust this power, because the entire world is waiting for your manifestation; not your explanations. They want you to show that Jesus is real; not stories and theories. With power, you become an enviable personality and will not be ashamed to be called the child of God. You must desire to walk in power; push yourself to acquire divine power. The first thing Jesus restored was power. Power is one of the proofs that Jesus Christ is real; your prosperity is tied to it. The level you will reach in life is based on the power at work in you.
That God said you will be a great man is not automatic; you need power to overcome challenges of life. The enemy will always want to stand in the way of divine plan; that is why you must grow in divine power. So become conscious of the power that works in you.
