Daily Devotional

by Pastor Larry Stockstill

The power of God is tangible! Elisha had been buried for an undetermined period of time when another dead man was accidentally thrown into his grave. Elisha's bones had so much of the power of God still residing in them that they caused the dead man to resurrect. And to think, we have trouble raising the dead while we are still alive!

Paul's body also contained great power from God. Even handkerchiefs that he had touched could be taken to the sick to bring healing (Acts 19:11-12). Obviously, Jesus carried this power, too. People could touch the hem of His garment and be completely healed.

In each of these cases, the power of God inhabited the physical world and was able to be transmitted. Why should we think it strange that God's supernatural, miracle-working power can break into the physical world and change even the most desperate of circumstances?

If we are filled with the Holy Spirit, this same power is in us. We must exercise it to minister justice to the oppressed, provide food for the hungry, and bring freedom to the captives (Psalm 146:7).
