Reign in power and let Your kingdom come in me!

"...Reign in power and let Your kingdom come in me!..." 

A light bulb has no light without a connection to a power source. A sailboat goes nowhere without the force of the wind. A stack of wood in the fireplace warms no one unless the flame is applied. A child of God who doubts His Maker walks in limited power. We all want God to take us out of our pain and sweep away the difficult circumstances of life, but trusting Him in the midst of the pain and trials is like plugging the light bulb of our heart into the most powerful electrical outlet in the universe. Spreading our wings of faith and allowing the wind of the Spirit to fill us is like spreading the sails of our souls and receiving the necessary power to sail right through the storms and waves of our trials. Recognizing and believing His great passion for us is like a stack of wood being consumed in a fireplace that warms all those who come in contact with it. Trust God today in ways you may not have thought of and see if there is not a power surge in your soul.
Step out in faith today and allow Jesus to reign in every situation. This will allow His Kingdom to come in power in areas where power has been lacking.
Put me like a seal over your heart,
Like a seal on your arm.
For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy is as severe as Sheol;
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
The {very} flame of the LORD.
Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor will rivers overflow it...

Song of Songs 8:6-7a NASB
