“Lord, you will grant us peace; all we have accomplished is really from you. O Lord our God, others have ruled us, but you alone are the one we worship” (Isaiah 26:12-13, NLT).
Ultimate control and supreme authority over the universe emanate from the throne room of God, the unseen Kingdom of Heaven where God resides and rules over the universe.
So, what’s true for heaven is true for our individual lives on this earth!
We like to think that we are self-achievers, but we should recognize that God is the source of our accomplishments.
Sometimes we are like the prophet Elisha’s servant who could not see the angelic army that protected the prophet from the king of Aram when he sent a great army to capture Elisha. When Elisha’s servant saw the Aramean army surrounding them, he became alarmed. Elisha reassured him that there were more on their side than there were Aramean soldiers. Then God opened the young man’s spiritual eyes to reveal an angelic army that filled the hillside with horses and chariots of fire (2 Kings 6:17).
When God’s Spirit dwells in us, He is the One that enables and empowers us.
Let God open your spiritual eyes so the reality of His powerful presence and salvation is revealed to you and through you.
“But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world” (I John 4:4, NLT).
