God did not take us out of the hell we were in and bring us to where we are now just to leave us here. God moved us from a place of powerlessness to one of being filled with a Spirit of power. Alone, we were powerless to change our situations and escape the misery our lives had become. We lacked power because we were not plugged into the ultimate power source, Jesus Christ.
Luke 8:46 is a beautiful illustration of Christ’s power flowing out of Him and into someone else. Jesus knew that someone had touched Him, and that power had flowed from Him to someone else. Jesus was aware that power flows in the same way that water flows. Electricity would not be harnessed for another two thousand years, yet Jesus was aware of the power that was flowing through Him and what was happening with that power.
Christ gives each of us that same power. The woman who crawled up to Jesus and lightly touched His garment came to Him in her powerlessness. It’s when we admit our brokenness that we too receive Christ’s healing power. Christ’s power flows to us when we approach Him in humility. When we are weak, we are at our strongest because of the power that flows to us from Christ.
