Spiritual Power

My Tuesday Treasure post on Nora Robert’s trilogy that depicts modern day witches and their craft, started me thinking about spiritual power and how easily available it may be to access.

Acts 10:38 tells us that “God anointed Jesus Christ with the Holy Ghost and with power...”

I'm not going to get into semantics here. The subject of Holy Ghost (or spiritual) power available to us is controversial in even the most devout Christian groups. But what I do want to talk about is the fact that this power is all around us, and how everyone has the ability to tap into that power and to create their world. 

In fact, I believe we do. 

In recent years a new emphasis has been put on spiritual and physical laws of the universe, mainly the law of attraction, which I believe is referred to in the bible.

Job 4:8 states, “Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity and sow wickedness, reap the same.”

Romans 10:10 says, For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”  Now I understand this particular scripture is referring to believing and confessing Jesus as Lord, but follow me here for just a minute.

The Law of Attraction states, “Like attracts like.”

Therefore, if you are constantly speaking, feeling and projecting negativity, you will attract those things and circumstances back to you—in other words, you will reap what you sow.

I have heard many preachers and teachers of God’s word say that if you want what God has, you have to say what God says. In other words, quote scripture (Romans 10:17).  We are even taught…. Let the weak say I am strong, let the poor say I am rich.

Dr. Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, and numerous other spiritual leaders of our time tell us over and over that if we want to change our lives, we have to change our thoughts and our words.

Couldn’t this be a practical example of the spiritual power available to us – the power to change our lives and ultimately the world we live in?

Something to think about!

PS: speaking of spiritual power - my book, In His Sight deals with the power (or gift) of psychic ability. Check it out!

Grade school teacher Carson Alexander has a gift—a gift that has driven a wedge between him and his family. Worse, it’s put him at odds with God. Feeling alone and misunderstood, Carson views God’s gift of prophecy as the worst kind of curse…that is until he meets Lorelei Conner, landscape artist extraordinaire, and perhaps the one person who may need Carson and his gift more than anyone ever has.  

Lorelei Connor is a mother on the run. Her abusive ex-husband has followed her all over the country trying to steal their daughter. Distrusting of men and needing to keep on the move, she’s surprised by her desire to remain close to Carson Alexander. Through her fear and hesitation, she must learn to rely on God to guide her—not an easy task when He’s prompting her to trust a man.

Can their relationship withstand the tragedy lurking on the horizon?

In His Sight is available through the Publisher, Amazon & Barnes and Noble!
