What Is Power?
Within the very essence of the word power, is something that extends father beyond our comprehension.
Why is it that Power is so attractive, seeming to be one of the most sought after attributes in our society.
Many people would associate power with financial status, and material wealth.
Others would define it by the ability to influence others around them.
Others associate their business success and achievements as an indicator of their power.
All of these things do reflect a form of power and can be used in a noble and constructive sense, as well destructive.
I believe that the first step to understanding how to grow in power and strength, is to properly understand it’s true nature and how it has been used in it’s highest expression.
I invite you on this journey of exploration and education of this worthwhile topic.
Where does Power come from?
I believe that all true power that manifests in the physical realm had it’s roots in the spiritual dimension.
I mean that in both the positive and the negative way.
When we look in the scriptures of the bible, we remember that the son of God Jesus the Christ was and still is beheld as the saviour if the world who came down to earth to represent God the father in all of his glory and strength wrapped in the flesh of human condition.
During a period of time in the new testament, the multitudes asked Jesus how to pray.
He then responded with a prayer that many still quote to this very day titled “The Lord’s prayer”
The reason I bring this up is because, even as Jesus was worshipped, pardoned the sins of humanity, could heal the blind, raise the dead, turn water to wine, he still acknowledged that the Kingdom, Power, and Glory belongs to our father who art in heaven.
Whether you identify with the sacred or secular understanding of power, it is an universal understanding that there is a power working within all of us that connects us all with each other as well as with the rest of the world.
I believe our ability to express that Power is related to our awareness of is already placed inside of us, and the Grace from he who put it there.
This in itself is the basis and foundation of true power.
Power is not always physical and displayed in great strength.
We can look at the opossum and how this nervous little creature instinctively uses the resources it has to survive.
Many powerful, hungry predators have left it alone due to the opossum playing dead.
To me,, that’s powerful
To be able to assume whatever disposition necessary to survive, function, and flourish in your environment is reflective of a power that’s deeper than brute strength.
Even wise men know how to play the card of silence and discerning the right time to reveal information and intentions.
Which brings me to my next point
Wisdom = Power
There was a very wealthy and Powerful king in the old testament named Solomon the son of David.
Early in Solomon’s reign, he was having a conversation with God who told him that he would grant him anything that his mind could think of.
Let us learn from the fact that Solomon asked for wisdom to rule the children of Israel.
He asked this understanding, that in all the search for wealth, Power, status, influence, Wisdom unlocks the door for not only attainment, but sustainment
Because of the nobility of his desire Solomon lead the nation of Israel with principles that major corporations and institutions still learn from to this day..
I’m not done flowing for the day…
