Work His Power To The Maximum!
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do
of his good pleasure (Philippians 2:13).
It’s not unusual to find Christians who think that what
they need is more power or more anointing. They’ve
read in the Bible of how people brought their sick so that the
shadow of Peter could come upon them and be healed.
They’ve also read of Paul, from whom handkerchiefs and
aprons were taken and laid on the sick, and they were healed.
So they pray, “Lord, I need a double portion of the anointing,
to minister like Peter and Paul.”
What Paul did was to impart the anointing into those
clothing materials. However, that anointing didn’t come from
heaven; it was in Paul, because he had the Holy Spirit. When
the Holy Spirit came to live in you, He came as a person to
make His home in you. He didn’t come to give you a part of
Himself; you’ve received the Holy Spirit without measure.
That was the difference between the Messiah and the
prophets of old. John 3:34 says “For he whom God hath sent
speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit
by measure unto him.” Upon the prophets came the Spirit,
but the Bible tells us the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus for the
purpose of living in Him. That’s the same thing about you; the
Holy Spirit came upon you that He might live in you, and He’s
in you now.
Sometimes, the presence of the Holy Spirit could be
imparted to you, maybe by the laying on of hands. But until
and unless you make contact with the person of the Holy
Spirit inside you and walk according to His power at work inyou, that impartation won’t last for long; it’s the reason many
are always looking for another anointing.
Don’t ignore that which God has put in you. Does
He give you more power? No! He’s already given you all
the power you could ever need—Himself! He’s power
personified. You’re the one to work His power in you to its
maximum. The Bible says, “And with great power gave the
apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and
great grace was upon them all” (Acts 4:33).
From where did they get great power? Jesus didn’t
say, “You shall receive great power”; He said, “But ye shall
receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…”
(Acts 1:8). They got all the power they needed from the
power-giver inside them. They activated that power for
whatever they needed. So, recognise and put the power in
you to work.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you
for the presence of your Spirit in
my life, which has ushered me
into a life of unending blessings.
I take advantage of the
miracle-working power of your
Spirit in me. Therefore, I walk in
greater manifestation of your
blessings, healings, prosperity
and power, in Jesus’ Name.
