Do you remember the movie called "Crocodile Dundee?" It was a good one.

Crocodile Dundee comes from the land down under. He is completely out of his realm when he came from Australia to New York City. Crocodile Dundee and his girlfriend are out for a walk at night, when all of a sudden some guys, which we would have called a thiefs or a hoods all a sudden appeared out of nowhere. One of the guys pulled out a knife and demanded, "Give me your money!" And Dundee’s girl screams, "Oh, he has a knife!"

But Crocodile Dundee, the cool character that he is says, "That’s not a knife." And he coolly reaches behind his back and pulls a huge knife out of his sheaf and says, "This is a knife." The thieves take one look at Dundee’s knife and takes off.

What would normally bring fear did not bring fear to Crocodile Dundee, because he had something bigger and better. Believer friend, we have someone bigger and better working for us this morning. God does not want you or me to be intimidated out of being the person He has saved us and sanctified us to be.

If you are doing the powerful kingdom work that God has called you to do then you have the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit and you and I are spiritually powerful persons.
