Power in the Holy Spirit
Sometimes we find ourselves thinking that we are not able to do what God is calling us to do. It may be with our family, friends, government, society, the church, or our job.
Let me tell you, we all have the capacity to do what God has called us to do—our ability comes from Him!
2 Corinthians 3:4-6 in The Passion Translation says:
“We carry this confidence in our hearts because of our union with Christ before God. Yet we don’t see ourselves as capable enough to do anything in our own strength, for our true competence flows from God’s empowering presence. He alone makes us adequate ministers who are focused on an entirely new covenant. Our ministry is not based on the letter of the law but through the power of the Spirit. The letter of the law kills, but the Spirit pours out life.”
The power does not come from our strength, but from the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. This is one of the purposes of the Father sending His Spirit.
Acts 1:8 says:
“…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” (NASB)
It’s not optional. As ambassadors of Christ and as people of influence, we need the power of the Holy Spirit. I met the Lord in 1997, but it wasn’t until 2011 that I encountered this power. I started using it and I have seen more results in 7 years than in all the previous 13 years. As I prayed for others I began to experience and witness healing, and within me an accelerated transformation along with inner healing began.
I remember once I was teaching in a church, and the power of the Holy Spirit fell in the meeting while I was speaking (in Acts 10:44 this also happened to Peter). There were several healings and two that impressed me. Two people who wore reading glasses came to me after saying, “Dayanna, I can read without glasses and this was not possible, the view is becoming clearer…” Praise Jesus!!!
This is real. We need His power to walk in the call that He has spoken over our lives. It’s not just related to healing, but also for strength, passion, and perseverance. If we are believers who believe in the power of the Holy Spirit but do not experience it tangibly, it means that there is more for us.
We can see Paul asking the Ephesians in Acts 19:2:
“Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?”
If you have not yet received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I encourage you that it is for you and will be an amazing blessing and empowerment to your life.
You can pray from your homes and ask God intimately to be baptized in the Holy Spirit (I have seen this). I also highly recommend participating in an event, church, or a group that believes in these things and will pray with you.
If you have already received the Holy Spirit’s power, I encourage you today to not minimize the power He has given you. Instead, seek Him with all your heart and trust in His strength within you to accomplish all that He has for you.
When He calls us, He sends us and directs us with His power manifested by His grace.
Have a wonderful week,
