Full of Power and Might

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”” (Acts 1:8)

Jesus is recorded as speaking to the disciples before his ascension into heaven. He reinforces the promise of the Holy Spirit and spoke of a new baptism not with water but with the fire of the Holy Spirit. “And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them.” (Acts 2:3)

We know that God is a consuming fire and there are different manifestations of God in the trinity as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus himself being referred to as the word which was in the beginning with God and was God. (John 1:1) Now this same word is referred to as being quick and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

God himself is now manifested in the person of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. This same power of God who raised Jesus Christ from the dead lives inside of you. (Romans 8:11) And Jesus has given us power to tread upon serpents and scorpions (demons), and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing can hurt you. (Luke 10:19)

We have to maintain a consciousness of who we are and the power that lives in us. Our words are powerful and our prayers are strong enough to shake foundations. Our voices as people of God can change the world and we have the power and authority to move mountains. We can command the weather patterns and the sea to be calm. Do you know how powerful you are? You have unlimited power from on high.

A.P.-Y.
