..How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and He went about doing good, healing all who were oppressed of the devil, because God was with Him
Whatever power men may chase after, the greatest power of all is in the spirit.
The Bible refers to it as the true riches – far more valuable than finances and human government.
Human will power and natural intelligence will get you so far, but at some point you will find you are stuck.
But if you are strong in your spirit, nothing will ever defeat you. Since the devil can’t get to God, he tries to make up for it by getting at you, but we are like Rambo, just waiting for him to take him out!
When you are strong in your spirit, trouble won’t wear you out and sickness won’t have the last word in your body. Whatever you are full of will dominate your life, and if you are full of power from on high, you will prevail!
Yet many believers look like they have power, and even think they have power, but when the chips are down, they are weaker than they thought.
Jeremaih 2:13 gets to the heart of the problem:
“For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.
The day the church rejected the Holy Ghost was the day that Christians lost touch with their power. If you neglect His presence, you start to rely on people. If you bypass the possibility of the supernatural, you fall back on natural power to make things happen in your life.
God wants to flow through you like you are on His level. He wants you to be able to take care of business EVERY time. He wants you to be like Jesus, who healed THEM ALL!
The distinguishing hallmark of Jesus was that He was anointed with the Holy Ghost and POWER. According to the book of Acts chapter 10, this was the message that went all about the region concerning Him. This was the reason that people flocked to Him, and this was the reason that miracles constantly happened in His presence.
You are just as anointed as Jesus was. There is power on the inside of you, but just like the electricity in my house, if I am ignorant of what I have and I fail to turn the switch, I will be groping in the dark like a man who has no electricity. I will find other ways of getting around my house – maybe light a candle to give me a little light, or even just go to bed and wait for the sun to come up.
Christians who don’t believe in the power within, and who fail to make a demand on it, are like sleeping giants, operating far below their ability and calling. It is as if they decided to live in a house with no lights, when electricity was available all the time!
It’s time to stir up the gift of God on the inside of you. It’s time to recharge your anointing and become hungry for God, and for the life that He has made available for you.
Spend time in His presence. Pray until something in you changes and you become clear. You will get stronger and stronger as you stir yourself up. There are levels of glory that you will only access when you get stirred up!
Praise Him until you know that you are in His presence, standing face to face. At that moment you know that you can access His power. Become quiet and yield to Him. Receive your answers; receive your fresh anointing and your infilling. Then step out ready to possess what you obtained in prayer.
Don’t rely on any other source. Everybody has an opinion they want to offer, but not many can get the job done!
Be continually filled; get stronger and stronger and you will break out of the cycle of sameness. If you want to make things happen with your life, set your heart on the POWER of the Holy Ghost!
