Today's Scripture:"No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.” Jn 10:18

See it.

Power shower

Live it.

Topical storm Cindy has changed family plans from Houston to Memphis. I was willing to face the bad weather until 12-inch flood warnings were sent out for the state of Louisiana. When the powerful storm track overlaid our route in and out of the one day reunion, it was time to make alternate plans. Today we're hearing of the rescheduling of the event which I hope will allow more family to attend.

Power is a subject that evokes a different response according to whom you speak. The most powerful storm is temporary as is power in the hands of men. Here today, gone tomorrow. But God Himself is not a limited power source nor is He weakened by the most assertive force on earth. Here's a statement of my faith: My God is more powerful than anything you can throw at Him. Even the fake gods of religion, mythology and their worshipers can't do anything that God can't endure, undo, and redo. In short, your gods only have power that my God gives them. Frankly, I tire of noisy threats and insults from insignificant powers.

Pray it.

I worship You, Jehovah, and declare before the assembly that "You are the one and only God."
