What does the Bible say about how much power Christians possess?

In the end, God is the source of all power. "Yours, LORD, is the grandeur, power, glory, majesty, and splendour, for everything in heaven and earth is yours." "You are the ultimate source of power." O LORD, I have exalted you to the position of head above all. You are the source of all wealth and renown, Lord of all. According to 1 Chronicle 29:11–12, you have the ability to exalt and strengthen everyone.

Many Old Testament verses mention God strengthening the weak: "He gives strength to the tired and increases the power of the weak" (Isaiah 40:29). Psalm 68:35 says, "You, God, are awesome in your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives might and vigour to his people." "All glory to God!" Prophets such as Samuel (2:10) and Isaiah (Isa. 6:2) are frequently described as receiving God's strength: "But as for me, I have been filled with power" (1 Samuel 2:10): 3:8 (Micah)

Throughout the Bible, there are numerous examples of God's limitless power flowing through His people. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is God's power that delivers salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jews, and then to the Gentiles," the Bible says (Romans 1:16; also 1 Corinthians 1:18). To be a Christian, you must be filled with the Holy Spirit, who empowers you to do anything worthwhile. "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth," Jesus told his disciples as he ascended into heaven (Acts 1:8).

It made no difference how good the disciples were at preaching the gospel or how enthusiastic they were; without the Holy Spirit, they'd be spinning their wheels. "I pray that out of his great riches he may empower you with power via his Spirit in your inner being," the Christian prays, "and that he may strengthen you with power via his Spirit in your inner being" (Ephesians 3:16). It's fine if we appear to be wasting away on the outside because we are constantly rejuvenated on the inside (2 Corinthians 4:16). "I became a servant of this gospel through the gift of God's grace, which was given to me through the working of his power" (Ephesians 3:7). Those who claim to be Christians have no authority. To the stunned onlookers, Peter explained that the man had been healed not by Peter's strength, but by faith in Jesus Christ's name: "Why do you find this surprising, fellow Israelites?" I'm not sure why you're staring at us as if we've somehow made this man walk on his own.
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, our forefathers, has exalted his servant Jesus... The man in your midst was strengthened by his faith in Jesus Christ.

As you can see, he has been completely healed in Jesus' name and through the faith that comes through him (Acts 3:12–16). "The Spirit God gave us does not make us afraid, but gives us power, love, and self-control," the Apostle Paul writes. Be assured of our Lord's witness and mine as his prisoner. Instead, by God's grace, I implore you to join me in suffering for the sake of the gospel (2 Timothy 1:7–8). "However, he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.'" Because my infirmities are a gift from God, I'm going to use them to shout even louder. (See also 2 Corinthians 12:9)

As a result, confess your sins to one another and pray for healing, as a Christian believes that prayer has power. The prayer of a righteous person has great power and effectiveness (James 5:16). When Jesus told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth," he was referring to the fact that he had been given the authority to speak in God's name. As a result, go around the world and baptize people in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Inform these new disciples that I expect them to abide by all of my rules and regulations. And you can be certain that I will be with you until the end of time.

In Ephesians 3:20, we are told that God's strength is beyond our comprehension. Because of the divine power at work in Christians, anything we ask or imagine is possible. God has bestowed upon us more power, strength, expertise, resources, and authority than we could have imagined. According to Ephesians 1:19–20, He has enormous power for those who believe. When it comes to faith, God's power is no different than the power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead and placed Him in His rightful place in the heavens.

For Christians, there is a lot to be thankful for. The Bible teaches that we have everything we need to live a godly life in a sinful world because God has given us the power to do so through His divine might. We received all of this when we first met him, "the one who called us to himself by way of his magnificent beauty and greatness" (2 Peter 1:3, NLT)

Dear my young brother @jsalvage , I agree with you!
God chooses and blesses the most foolish and weakest people in the world. We always open our imperfect and evil parts to God and ask for forgiveness.

I pray that the Muslims in Nigeria will accept Jesus as their savior!
