What happens when we refute God’s eternal power?
"With all our being, we want to serve God without needing anything from Him."
We're born thinking we're supposed to have the power to do God's will, that we have the power to be good and to please Him. But when humanity decided to be like God and take care of itself, we actually forfeited the power of God to operate on our behalf.
“Thinking she could own the power of knowledge within herself, Eve became independent of her God. She didn’t have to listen, wait or lean. She didn’t have to need God. She immediately used her ‘I know’ as the power of knowledge by exerting control over Adam, an influence he accepted and for which God held the man accountable (Gen. 3:17).
“But Adam and Eve did NOT possess the knowledge of good and evil, because what they now believed to be good (independence of God) was evil, and what they believed to be evil (dependence on God) was good.
Proverbs 14:12 ESV
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.
“So in came the Lie that power could reside in man, and he could live without needing God.”
In Eternal Power, Martha explores our contorted views of power, our desperate struggle to possess illegitimate power, and the key to accessing God’s eternal power for every aspect of our lives.
“God does not mix His eternal power with our illegitimate power.”
