Deeds of Omnipotence

A friend posted this on her blog, for me, I think :-).

I asked her if she thought I was being asked to do deeds of omnipotence and she thought maybe so. It's reassuring that I am working with one GREATER than I.

"All who consecrate soul, body, and spirit to God 
will be constantly receiving a new endowment of 
physical and mental power. 
The inexhaustible supplies of Heaven are at their command. 
Christ gives them the breath of His own spirit, 
the life of His own life. 
The Holy Spirit puts forth its highest energies 
to work in heart and mind. 
The grace of God enlarges and multiplies their faculties, 
and every perfection of the divine nature comes to their 
assistance in the work of saving souls. 
Through co-operation with Christ they are complete in Him, 
and in their human weakness they are enabled to 
do the deeds of Omnipotence."
The Desire of Ages, page 827.

Claiming Isaiah 49: 24 and 25 over Missy today.
She is struggling.

Shall the prey be taken from the mighty,
or the lawful captive delivered?
But thus saith the Lord,
Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered;
for I will contend with him that 
contendeth with thee,

I'm holding Him to it.
He has to keep His WORD.

Where are the quotes you put on your blog from? I recognize the scripture verses from the bible but where are all the other quotes from? Just curious.

The Desire of Ages is a book on the Life of Christ by E.G. White. This is a precious book.

I often quote from other books authored by her that I believe are inspired writings. I find so much comfort and help for my spiritual life in these books.
