Sermon:
Intro: The choir sang this morning, "God's Got The Power," and that is so true. Our God is powerful God. He is an awesome God. But, thank God, He has given that power to us! Read Luke 10:19

Power - Gr. Dunamis, "Dynamite." The use of dynamite can be for good or for destruction.

Our text says, God will do more than we can ask or think, but it is according to the power that worketh in us!

Say with me, "I've got the power!" Say with me, "It's working!"

Remember, the deodorant commercial years ago, where people are shown in various stressful situations, and all of a sudden they break out in a sweat and say, "It's not working!"

Well, friend, no matter what the stressful event you're going through, if you're a child of God, YOU'VE GOT THE POWER! AND THE POWER IS WORKING IN YOU!

WHAT POWER IS AVAILABLE TO US?

I. The Power of the Word!

A. Mark 12:24 - And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
You will always err (make a mistake) when you don't do what the Bible says!

B. Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

C. 1 Thess. 2:13 - For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

D. John 15:7 - If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

E. You see now what Paul was speaking of in our text, "He is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us! The power of the Word of God is your weapon against the devil. It is the Sword of the Spirit! THE POWER OF THE WORD WILL GET YOUR PRAYERS ANSWERED!


II. The Power of the Gospel!

A. Romans 1:16 - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

B. 1 Cor. 1:18 - For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

C. II Tim. 1:8 - Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

D. The devil wants you to be ashamed of the Gospel. He wants you to be embarrased to witness to your friends. He wants you to say, "I'm shy." You're not shy-you're ashamed-and the shame is on you! BE BOLD!

E. The gospel is the power of God to save! And you have that power working in you to reach your friends and relatives for Christ! THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL WILL SAVE YOUR LOST LOVED ONES!
