Without Jesus we can do nothing. Without Jesus we have no power against satan and against sin. Without Jesus we are defenseless and doomed to failure. Without Jesus we have no direction, no hope of the future. Without Jesus, there is no hope of eternal life.
Christian believers are defeated and powerless because they are not focused on Jesus. With Jesus all things are possible. Peter walked on water, while he was focused on Jesus but when he looked around him at the storm the waves, he began to sink, “he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:30,31. The moment we take our eyes off Jesus, we are defeated.
Jesus said: ”All things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23. Jesus also said: ”I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible to you.” Matthew 17:20.
As long as we stay focused on Jesus and we believe, trust in Him, all things are possible. The apostle Paul said: ”I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13. We must not allow ourselves to be distracted from Jesus, by other people, the desires of the flesh and sin. We cannot walk in the power of God if we are watching TV, running after the pleasures of the world, seeking the acceptance of people and partying with the world. We must be men and women of God, focused on Jesus and on doing His will.
Jesus said:“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8“My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. 9“Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. 10“If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. 11“These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” John 15:7-11.
The power of Jesus will only be in us if we walk and live in obedience to Him, in holiness and righteousness seeking to do His will, not our own. We can only have confidence and faith when we do what is pleasing to Him and fully trust in Him.
Repent of all sin and worldliness and dedicate yourself fully to Jesus. Do not allow yourself to be distracted by anything. Walk with Jesus and stay focused on Him or you will be defenseless, destroyed by satan. Submit yourself to Jesus, resist the devil and he will flee from you. There is victory in Jesus, if we stay with Him and stay focused on Him.
