If we suddenly possessed a billion dollars, what would we do with it? Would we leave it in the bank and never spend it? Wouldn’t that almost be the same as not having it at all? What good is all that power if it’s sitting in the bank? Well, we already possess something more powerful than a billion dollars–IF–Christ dwells in us. Are we living in His power?

Before I got to know God, I never lived in His power. That’s because I never believed in it. So, I left it in the bank. I was born again–meaning, I possessed more power than a billion dollars–but, I never used it. However, when I got to know God, He changed me. I began to see how faith in Him made more sense than faith in money or myself. Faith in Him began to permeate my everyday decisions and trump my faith in anything else. When we are God’s children, He endows us with the greatest power on earth—the power that resurrected Jesus! The Bible says: “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.” (Romans 8:11) The same power which resurrected Jesus is present in believers! Wow!

God conquered death. He lives in us. Money can’t touch that kind of power.

Do we believe in His power? God’s Word promises that He gives us ALL power and ALL things: “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32) When we know Him, we experience His power. To know Him, we must seek Him. We must love Him more than we love anything. When He becomes what is most important in our life–we begin to believe because we see His power working through us!
