TITLE: Ultimate Power
By joanna reed


Maximum Power that is my name. It sounds so daunting and precocious. I am neither intimidating nor present myself as more advanced than others. I am a child of Ultimate Power. He gave me this name many years ago. I was not born into His family. Ultimate Power chose me to become His child and I accepted the position. Although this position comes with tribulation and heartache, this position also comes with inner peace, joy and satisfaction. Ultimate Power fills and satisfies my spirit so that nothing else can prevent me from basking in the joy of being one of His children. He completely satisfies me with His presences and I lack nothing.

When you look at me you really cannot see the correlation between my name and my outward appearance. My physical presence is less than optimal. This name was given to me by Ultimate Power but it was based solely on His power and position within the heavenly realm.

I want to tell you about my journey. I am sure that I am not different than many others on this earth. I can only hope and pray that if you do not already know my Father that when you are finished reading this journey you will want to know Him because….He is truly amazing, wonderful and awesome.

When I was born, my name was Sin Nature. I was completely selfish and self-centered. I believe that everyone should do what I wanted them to do because I knew what was best for everyone and especially what was best for me. I had my own thoughts and plans for my future.

My parents felt the same way as I did. Of course this did not make my life easy. My parents inflicted intense pain and discomfort because they also wanted things in life to go their way. With everyone around me seeking their own personal pleasures, the environment in which I was designated to survive and grow in seemed uninviting and completely thoroughly repressive to my soul and hearts desire for inner peace and satisfaction.

I met Ultimate Power when I was very young. He was different. I was told that He wanted the best for me all the time. I could not understand that type of individual. He wrote a book about Himself and it told about what He had done, was doing, and wanted to do for everyone. I would like to tell you about some of my adventure as a child of Ultimate Power.

I often attend strategy meeting with other children of Ultimate Power. We learn how to get along with others in our group. I was given new methods of empowerment during the meeting. I then called on the Ultimate Power. Ultimate Power revealed to me through His Spirit the next step in the process of using my sword.

Tasty Morsel was talking about Double-Minded. He knew Double-Minded. He had many conversations with him. Tasty Morsel was truly enjoying discussing his new found information on Double-Minded.

I felt a twinge in his body. Something did not seem right but I was not sure why it bothered me. I found another player named Right Path. I started to tell him about Double-Minded and the things that Tasty Morsel had said about him.

Right Path immediately stopped me and said this is not right. Right Path grabbed his sword and reminded me about our recent strategy meeting. In the strategy meeting, we discussed ways to help one another in reaching the goal of standing firm in righteousness. He showed me again how to use my sword in a way that destroys this scheme of the enemy.

I then realized why this gave me such an odd feeling. I remembered what Ultimate Power had revealed to me through His Spirit. I immediately asked Ultimate Power to cleanse me with the blood which the Perfect Lamb, who was also a son of the Ultimate Power, had given to me as a covering for such mistakes.

I then took out my sword. I was then armed and ready for Tasty Morsel. Tasty Morsel was playing on the wrong side and I needed to be ready to confront such deceitful behavior.

I enjoyed the use of "Ultimate Power, Maximum Power, Tasty Morsel" and all the others to present this wonderful message. Good job!

smile...an interesting allegory with interesting names! A little dialogue and more action would make it even better. Well done.
