Optional Power of God

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
2 Peter 1:3-4

We all have something that we are looking towards for a sense of strength, but there is a divine power from God that can carry us in every area of our lives. In this special message on Sunday, guest pastor James Murray gives us three questions we can use to amplify God's divine power in our daily lives.

God’s divine power is optimal for every area of our life, but it’s also optional.

  1. What is God’s divine power?
  • Most often our limitations are a gift from God. It’s at the end of you that you discover the beginning of him.
  • Divine power is unceasing. When you tap into it, you experience something that does not run out.
  • God’s divine power is not a supplement you engage with when you feel alone, but your consistent sustaining source of strength and power. It’s not an accessory.

  1. What does God’s divine power do in our lives?
  • Power to overcome: God’s divine power does not make your struggles weaker, it just makes you stronger.
  • Power to endure: God’s divine power gives us the ability to endure hardships to contentment.
  • Power to become: God’s divine love accepts you as you are. God’s divine power doesn’t leave you the way you are.

  1. How do we access God’s divine power?
  • Divine power comes through the knowledge gained through a first hand relationship with God.
  • “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” Revelation 3:20
  • You can participate in the divine nature that God has given you, but you have to make the first move.
