The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. – Psalm 145:18
I remember years ago when my daughter’s iPad would not work. The problem was it had lost its connection with the Wi-Fi. Sometimes we can have days where we just don’t feel connected spiritually. Being connected spiritually makes a big difference in our desire to have a good day rather than a bad one.
In the post, “The Power of Faith”, the woman in the crowd decided to take care of her health issue by touching Jesus’s cloak. The church leader named Jairus went to Jesus when his daughter was sick. In the same way today, our needs are met when we go to Jesus for help and apply the faith principles taught.
Jesus demonstrated control and authority over physics and even life. Because of Jesus, we become anchored to the power of faith that can handle any situation because there is courage, steadfastness, and the strength to bear adversity.
Take inspiration from the song The Same Power by Jeremy Camp and know that God is big enough to help us with this same power that rose Jesus from the grave. The same power that commands the dead to wake, that moves mountains when He speaks, and that calms a raging sea. The same power that lives in us.
