Thanks Pastor for teaching us concerning The Power of God. We know that our hearts believes what our mind accepts as truth. So it’s very important that we filter all that we hear, or see. We need to filter out the negative things we see, or hear, because our heart will believe a lie as quick as it will the truth if our mind accepts it as truth. We only need to allow truth to fill our hearts as we become stronger day by day because of the truth our heart believes. God’s Word is truth. God’s Word is positive, God’s Word is powerful, and it will help and guide us, making us aware when we are hearing things that crosses his Word. The power of the truth allows us to operate the power of God in manifestation by his spirit that dwells within each born again believer. So allow God’s Word to fill your heart, and know God will never lead you wrong. God bless
The resurrection of our Lord was proof that He was the Messiah, as He claimed, and that death could not hold Him in its grip (see Acts 2:22-32). Beyond this, the ascension of the Lord Jesus to the right hand of the Father brought about the pouring forth of the Holy Spirit, empowering the believers with the same power that raised up Jesus, what a wonderful day to be alive!
