Without Jesus we can do nothing.
Without Jesus we have no power against satan and against sin. Without
Jesus we are defenseless and doomed to failure. Without Jesus we have
no direction, no hope of the future. Without Jesus, there is no hope
of eternal life.
Christian believers are defeated and
powerless because they are not focused on Jesus. With Jesus all
things are possible. Peter walked on water, while he was focused on
Jesus but when he looked around him at the storm the waves, he began
to sink, “he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus
stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, “You
of little faith, why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:30,31. The
moment we take our eyes off Jesus, we are defeated.
Jesus said: ”All things are possible
to him who believes.” Mark 9:23. Jesus also said: ”I say to you,
if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’ and it shall move; and nothing shall
be impossible to you.” Matthew 17:20.
As long as we stay focused on Jesus and
we believe, trust in Him, all things are possible. The apostle Paul
said: ”I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
Philippians 4:13. We must not allow ourselves to be distracted from
Jesus, by other people, the desires of the flesh and sin. We cannot
walk in the power of God if we are watching TV, running after the
pleasures of the world, seeking the acceptance of people and partying
with the world. We must be men and women of God, focused on Jesus and
on doing His will.
Jesus said: “If you abide in Me, and
My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for
you. 8“My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much
fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. 9“Just as
the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My
love. 10“If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My
love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His
love. 11“These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may
be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” John
The power of Jesus will only be in us
if we walk and live in obedience to Him, in holiness and
righteousness seeking to do His will, not our own. We can only have
confidence and faith when we do what is pleasing to Him and fully
trust in Him.
Repent of all sin and worldliness and
dedicate yourself fully to Jesus. Do not allow yourself to be
distracted by anything. Walk with Jesus and stay focused on Him or
you will be defenseless, destroyed by satan. Submit yourself to
Jesus, resist the devil and he will flee from you. There is victory
in Jesus, if we stay with Him and stay focused on Him.
May Jesus bless you.
