What is Power?
Updated: May 5, 2022
Let's begin the conversation! Describe in your own words and definition, what is power?
Power is "the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the source of events. The ability to do something or act in a particular way, especially as a faculty or quality (Oxford Languages. languages.oup.com. Oxford University Press 2022).
In reference to the book Wild & Engraced by Your Own Power, I believe that God is telling each of us to know and understand the spiritual power within. And to observe and assess how we are utilizing the individual power in our lives, as well as collectively. If we do not understand how power works within us, it would be very difficult to know and understand how it functions in other aspects of life. "Power is the capacity to cause change, produce effects...(PSU WC, 1. 7.)
God is the Source of Spiritual Power. Therefore, we must connect with God for understanding and wisdom about power. God's Power is the Spirit, governing Source, and driving force of our soul. It is through God's Power, Peace, and Love that we journey through life with divine esteem, confident boldness and beautiful happiness.
When we tap into our personal power from within, we are esteemed through the spirit of God to be enthusiastic about life, personally accountable for esteeming to try to seek the life that we desire and was sent here to do. We are cocreators of the journey in fulfilling God's Will on earth. We are humble, loving, compassionate, and empathetic towards ourselves and others, because we are influenced by God esteem and virtue. God's Power is supernatural ethereal energy that emanates from deep within us.
Some words that describe power are: authority, energy, leadership, control, command, potential, capacity, strength, might, force, regency, potent, reign, influence, leverage, skill, talent, dominion, jurisdiction, sway.
