Surrender to Live in God’s Power 
By Rick Warren

“For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.” 1 Corinthians 4:20 (NLT)

To live a fulfilled life, you must live by God’s power. 

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 4:20, “For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power” (NLT). 

Did you know that God doesn’t bless self-reliant people? He blesses people who depend on him and surrender to him. 

God wants to use you—but he insists that you live by his power. Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think” (NLT).

Through his power, God is able to do more in and through you than you can ever imagine. So how do you get God’s power in your life? There are three ways:

You get God’s power by praying. 

If you don’t have any power in your life, that could mean you’re not praying. Prayer and power go together.

You get God’s power by taking risks to obey God.

When you take a risk to do what God tells you to do—even when it’s hard or unpopular, even when it may cost you, even when it doesn’t make sense, even when nobody else is doing it—God will pour out his power in your life.

You get God’s power by not giving up.

For God to grow your faith, he will test it. When you’re going through difficulties, delays, despair, or discouragement, God is teaching you to trust him. Hang on, and God will bless you. Don’t give up!

Start living in God’s power by surrendering your life to him today.
