Isaiah 40:29 "He gives POWER to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength."

Today I want to talk about this 5 letter word that is mighty in substance. This word is held in its highest esteem. This word has many uses and can be used many ways depending on which way you want to imply it. It can be used as a noun and mean the right to govern or rule as being authoritative or controlling. It can be used as a verb and mean to supply, to give, or to move about. It can also be used as an adjective and mean of, relating to, or utilizing. POWER is a synonym for strength, authority, might, energy, etc. Whichever way you choose to use it, please know that POWER is one awesome ability!

Many of us women have backed off from using the POWER we possess in order to please someone or something else. We may have put ourselves on the back burner and said "I will do that later" or " I don't have the resources to do what I want to do now." Well ladies, NO MORE! We have to realize that the POWER we have comes in the many forms in which the word means. Women, we have the strength to take care of our household. We have authority over unruly children. We have the might to climb the corporate ladder. We use our energy to stretch ourselves in more than one direction. So what is it about POWER that scares some women?

Why can't we use this POWER and be go getter's of God's dreams and visions for our lives?

A dream is not something that we have at night to pass away the time. Your visions for your life are not something imagined in fantasy land. These are God given talents and abilities that God has placed in you for you to obtain. Don't sit back on the POWER God has implanted in you. He gave you your dreams and visions for you to run to and become more of what He has desired. Don't assassinate your dreams and visions with idle POWER of unbelief and self destructive actions.

Remember Delilah? She had an agenda to assist the Philistines in Samson's demise. Delilah had strength that would either build or destroy those around her. Delilah could have chosen to build up Samson instead of destroying him and her own people. Women, please use the POWER inside of all of you to grow yourself and others into what God has destined you and them to be. Satan desires to use this POWER for evil but you can choose to build up your queendom and unleash the POWER that God has given you.

How will you use your POWER this week in order to build up what God has called you to do?
