Spineless without Christ
Focus: John 15:5 - KJV
5. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Jesus Christ is the one by whom and for whom all things were made. In Him also is the God head bodily. He is the most powerful being that exists. Anyone that locates himself in Christ has the ability to do great and mighty things. However, those who are outside of Him will only make effort but achieve little. Twice Peter went a-fishing outside Christ and for the two times he caught nothing. When he located himself in Christ however, he caught a draught. Paul was located in Christ. By this, aprons and handkerchiefs from his body performed wonders with the sick and those with infirmities. Then, some jokers felt it was just by waving handkerchiefs or aprons and mentioning the name of Jesus; so, they attempted to do the same thing. Of particular mention were the sons of Scervas. Not only did they achieve nothing, the demons tormenting the victims openly disgraced them. Getting located in Christ and having Christ in us is a supernatural phenomenon. It is that we imbibe the Word of Christ and remain steadfast in His commands. Anyone who is able to do this has ability beyond ordinary. But those who do not are not able to achieve much.
That situation that seems so insurmountable is only so because there is something missing like in the case of the sons of Scervas. If we be in Christ and His word be in us, whatever we ask in His name, without wavering, happens. So, this day, if you will locate yourself in Him and have His word in you, then proceed against that circumstance in the name of Jesus and see it give way. You can do this.
SOLUTION: Accepting Christ as Lord and Savior is the first step towards spiritual ability; having the Word of God which is the sword of the Spirit is the cap up for good success. The name of Jesus becomes valuable in the mouth of someone who has it and it is a key that opens any door.
From this day on, every decree you make shall be established for your benefit in Jesus’ name. Every difficult situation will give way for your progress in Jesus’ name. Whatever power that has been working against your success are rebuked for your sake today in Jesus’ name.
