Spirit of the Shield – 1.23.14

Hi, my name is Captain Shawana Brown and along with my husband, whom you heard from last week we are excited to be sharing from God’s word with you. I hope you had the opportunity to study Jeremiah 33 which my husband shared a message from last week. What I would like to ask you today is, has there ever been a time you felt powerless?

Within my husband’s devotional last week he mentioned God being the creator of the earth. And that is where I would like you to go with me today, to the beginning. The story of creation is found in Genesis chapters 1 & 2 (click here see these chapters in New King James Version). These first 2 chapters have 2 purposes which are first to identify God as the creator of the world and second to show God’s sovereign power as the creator of all things.

As you study these 2 chapters take a moment to find God’s initial response to His creation in chapter 1 verses 1-13, how He carefully fills the earth in verses 14-25 and His creation of man and woman beginning in chapter 1 verse 26 and ending in chapter 2 with verse 25.

God is sovereign, meaning He has all authority and power over all things. His authority rules over the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, the things or events in life we may not understand. On the days you are on top of the world, remember the powerful God who created this world for you to enjoy and give Him thanks. On the days you are in the valley, and feel powerless, remember that same powerful God who created the earth, in much detail, created you and can give you power over whatever circumstance you are facing.

Isn’t it great to know you have a powerful God on your side? Trust in His power for your life, after all He did create you. God bless and see you next time.
