Your Power of Attorney

Your Power of Attorney to use the name of Jesus Christ enables you to walk with the full power and authority behind that name. Power for what? For the more abundant life, for your needs being met, for physical and mental healing — for whatever is promised to you in God’s Word.

Believers in the 1st Century Church, which began in Acts chapter 2, utilized this power to such an extent that perhaps the world has not seen its equal since. Has God changed? No. The power in the name of Jesus Christ has been given to believers to use. Why? Because Christ is not present but believers are, therefore the power of attorney means he has given you the right to use his name, today.

Why would God to this? He wants you blessed, He wants you walking with power and efficacy in this life.

Discover the Goodness of God

In order to discover the goodness of God we need to go to His Word. Just as people “discover” one another via words, whether conversation, emails, or texts, God had His Word written so we could discover Him and learn of His goodness to mankind.

Too often man may say “this is what God says and means”, and as a young boy I listened but did not check the Bible, God’s Word, to see if what I as being told was true. And sometimes these comments were completely opposite of what God’s Word actually does say.

We need to discover the goodness of God so we can see His love to us and claim His promises in our lives. Having an incorrect or negative view of God hurts our ability to believe Him. He has given us all good things freely.

It may surprise you to learn that to “repent” does not mean “confess your sins”.

How Not To Be Anxious

We will learn keys on how not to be anxious. Anxiety is a type of fear. Anxiety chokes, it takes away joy from daily living, it keeps one in a state of agitation and nervousness. This is not how God intended for us to live.

A first key on how not to be anxious is to learn and believe that God cares for us and God has provided for us. Period. If we have our needs met — whether it be clothing, shelter, money, health — we have fewer things to fret about. If we know and believe that we have ‘someone’, God, to go to in time of need, we can live with an assurance and confidence in life.

Claiming and enjoying what God has provided requires believing. John 10:10 says that Jesus Christ came to give us life, and give it more abundantly.
