The authority of a Believer!

05/02/2020 All day

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and earth” – Mat 28:18 (NIV).

A friend of mine had one of those birds that enjoyed making a home in her beautiful compound. This bird is sort of honorary; she won’t have anything short of a castle, where she gathers all amount of dirt and parades all in glory.

Tired of all the dirt, one day my friend asked her shamba boy climb up to cut down the tree branches. “No!” The young shamba boy refused. He would not dare do such a thing. Curious my friend asked, why!

“My mother told me that if you hurt that bird nasty things will follow you!”

At that point my friend remembered that she was a believer in Christ and no longer a captive of old traditions. So, she got hold of the panga, telling the young man that her faith in Christ was beyond those worries, struggled up the tree and cut down the branches. The young man stood watching amazed.

Later, after realizing nothing bad had happened to his master, in the days that followed the young man, like her, started cutting down the remaining branches. He had been converted over by one person who had put her faith in Christ.

Prayer for Today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray that I may never doubt the faith and power I have in you as a believer in Christ.
