A lot of Christians are asking God for power. The truth is, no matter how much they fast, pray, declare, or cry out to God, He is not going to give them the power they are asking for because it was already given to them. The problem is, they do not know the power that they already have. You have been given power, dunamis, which translated from the Greek means inherent power – power that is residing in a thing by virtue of its nature. This is not power that you need to try to receive. As a Christian, you already have it.
This power resides inside of you, but it will not do you or others any good unless you understand what you have. Dunamis power – the power you have – is power for performing miracles. It is moral power and excellence of soul. It is the power and influence which belong to riches and wealth. It is power and resources arising from numbers.
And it is the power consisting in or resting upon armies, forces, or hosts. The power you have inside you is miraculous power, ability, abundance, strength, and might. You are not waiting for power. You are a walking, talking powerhouse ready to take on any challenge and fulfil any mission.
I am an end-time emissary of the Kingdom of God sent to cause changes in this world. I am here on a mission, and that mission will be accomplished without fail. I am endowed with power which makes me a person of influence, excellence, and ability.
1 Corinthians 4:20; 2 Peter 1:3
