postheadericon Do You Believe in Magic?


"We do not need magic to transform our world.
We carry all of the power inside ourselves."
- J.K. Rowling

I got a package today and this gem was inside of it. I'm not going to lie... J.K. Rowling has taught me oh, so much! What an incredibly wise woman. This is no different; she is spot on.

We have the greatest power of all inside of us.

"But you will receive powerwhen the Holy Spirit comes on you;
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem,
and in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth."
- Acts 1:8

We have all the power we need to transform our world. That's a pretty incredible statement if you think about it, but it is one that I fully agree with.

Have you ever thought about the power of a simple smile? A kind word? Paying for someone's coffee or meal? Opening a door? Sharing an encouraging Bible verse with a friend? Praying for a stranger?
"Kind words can be short and easy to speak,
but their echoes are truly endless."
- Mother Teresa
We have the power to change our world because God is in us. And God is for us. And God is working in our lives for the good of all of us.

We don't need magic. We have something far greater. We have the Holy Spirit in us. We have power beyond our wildest dreams. We can do all things through Him who gives us strength. We can transform the world around us for the better. To God be the glory!

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you
with power through his Spirit in your inner being,
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people,
to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -
that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,
according to his power that is at work within us,
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
- Ephesians 3:16-21
