Scriptures: 2 Timothy 1:7, James 4:14, Proverbs 6:6-8
In your daily life do you feel there are days you can conquer anything set before you and other days you are filled with failure, fatigue and frustration. Is there a since of achievement and accomplishment or a battle with disappointment, distress, and discouragement? God wants to give all who know Him a spirit of power. The key to all true and lasting success is power. In this message, Dr. Merritt uses the letters in the word "POWER" to explain simple character qualities we must have to be all that we can on earth to the glory of God.
"Many find themselves bruised and beaten by the struggles of life. The thoughts of quitting, throwing in the towel, or just giving up, plague the mind as much as the trials. Today there is much stress and struggle because of the economy and it is not uncommon for families to just call it quits because it is too hard to work through difficulties. The first key to success is perseverance. We must stay in the battle, not give up, never quit. Success takes time, but it comes to those who persevere." --Dr. Merritt
