You are a Treasure

In 2 Cor 4:7, Paul says that we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power, may be of God and not of us.  In other words, God has placed in us a treasure.  This treasure is to be used by the Lord for His praise and glory.  Jesus said in Acts 1:8, that we are to tarry until we be endued with power from on high.  God has placed in us a power that when fully given over to Him can do amazing and impossible things.  Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Peter was able to raised a lame man.  Paul was able to cast out demons, Philip was able to travel amazing distances.  These were ordinary men who availed themselves to amazing power.  Rom 8:11, tells that there is resurrection power in every Christian all we have to do is utilize it.  Through faith and prayer amazing things can happen.  Mark 16:17, says these signs will follow those who believe.  As a Christian when you believe and trust God supernatural things happen.  Recently, I went to a comedy show and I ask the Lord for a parking place at the venue and a good seat in the club.  God provided me with a parking spot close to the club and a table right by the stage.  We could see the nose hairs of the performers.  It may have been a small thing but God does the small things to remind us that when a big thing is needed He is able to do more than we can think or imagine.  So today remember that God is has placed in your earthen vessel a treasure, it is the power of God used for His praise and glory and not for our own.  We are vessels in which He wishes to flow through.  Let yourself be that vessel today.
