“You’ve Always Had the Power My Dear”

“You’ve Always Had the Power My Dear”

This morning on my way to work I was reminded of the movie “Wizard of Oz” while having a conversation with my husband. He was telling me that one of his friends he played football with in college recently went blind. My husband began praying for God to restore his sight and give the doctors wisdom and as he was praying the Holy Spirit put on my heart the movie the “Wizard of Oz”. In this movie Dorothy was on a quest to get back to Kansas when she was taken through a series of events to help her get down the yellow brick road. After many trials and mishaps she finally reaches Glinda at the end of her journey, Glinda kindly told her,.. “You have always had the power to get back to Kansas. All Dorothy had to do was click her red sparkly heels (that were already in her possession) and she would be on her back home.

I believe the Holy Spirit put this scene on my heart because in the word of God, Jesus teaches us that as believers we have the power to heal the blind, raise people from the dead and do many other miracles.

But why is it that instead of walking in our authority we give our power away?

 Matter of fact in John 14:12 Jesus says, “ Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” Isn’t this amazing?

The issue is that we wait for confirmation, we doubt our own power, we depend on medical professionals or cease putting action behind our faith. God has given us the power, and authority...all we have to do is walk in it.

Whatever situation you are in…believe deeper, and allow your actions to reflect your trust in God. Allow your mustard seed to grow.

I hope this message inspired you in some way...

“You have always had the power my dear.”
