Welcome to my thoughts concerning my daily devotions. I hope something that I receive from the Word may, in turn, be somewhat of a blessing to you also. May the Lord bless you this and every day as you love and serve Him.

Cristopotence! (the Power of Christ)
Eccl 8:8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
When Jesus had finished the work He had come to earth to do, He cried out, "Into thy hands I commit my spirit" and He gave up the ghost.
No man has ever possessed this power! He has power over life, death, resurrection, sin and salvation. There is nothing He cannot do except that in which He is bound by His own immutable Word. He cannot change, He cannot lie and He cannot go against His Word.
Nothing shall be impossible with God, child of the Lord. Remember that when you are totally up against it, when all else and everybody else has failed. God will make a way. When you are in the wilderness, wandering in the confusion of a mixed up, messed up world, He will carve a path for you where there is none.
And when it comes down to the end, He will beckon your spirit and you will go to Him.
He is the Christ, He is sovereign and He is all powerful!
