"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving." (Col. 2:6-7)
In the grand scheme of things – life, ambitions, hopes and dreams – stands the Will of God being fulfilled in all the earth. Since the fall in the garden at the beginning, God’s plan of redemption has been implemented and reached full effect at the coming of Jesus. This is the greatest force at work in the earth today. Nothing can stop it – Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, in Earth as it is in Heaven.
The greatest power is not in Washington, D.C., nor Russia or China. It’s not in human power or strength. It’s not in the kingdom of darkness (Col. 1:13). The greatest power still resides in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. Always has and always will, to the Glory of God. The greatest power is in the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Rom. 1:16). But you shall receive power (Act 1:8, also Lk. 24:49). That power is in you.
As you have received Jesus, now walk in Him – live in Him; conduct yourself like Him; imitate Him. Rooted for security and stability. Built up for action. Stablished for confidence and credibility. Now we move out in great faith. Now we walk as one. Now we possess our inheritance. Now we overcome.
Don’t be deceived by philosophy – arguments based on lies. Don’t be moved by what you see. Don’t be alarmed by persecution. Be moved by Faith! In Matthew chapter seven verse 25 Jesus said, “the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell NOT!” Why? It’s source was the Rock! Your Source is the Rock – Jesus!
