If I could have any super power …

… I’d choose this one:

“Not the power of a dynamic personality or the power of human wisdom and intrigue and scheming and carefully worked-out methods, but spiritual power through the Holy Spirit as we let Him fill us. Power that is made perfect through weakness, power that comes by grace through faith in the One who ‘is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us’ (Ephesians 3:20). High-voltage spiritual power that makes the enemy cringe!”

That’s how Ruth Myers describes the power available to Christians through the Holy Spirit in her book “31 Days of Power: Learning to Live in Spiritual Victory.”

While I admit this wasn’t exactly what I was expecting in a devotional, I do think it’s a valuable resource, especially for new Christians. Consider it a primer on spiritual warfare, but even for those of us who have been believers for a while the book serves as a reminder that we’re in a battle, we have weapons available, and in the end, we’re on the winning team.

The book is divided into two parts: a 31-day devotional and a section that further explains the basis for spiritual warfare and how a Christian lives in the midst of it. I appreciated the space to personalize each day’s prayers and the numerous Scripture references that served as sources for the prayers.

In exchange for this review, I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
