“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…”
As a new creation in Christ Jesus, you’re powered from within. Inherent in you is the dynamic ability to cause changes. This power became resident in you upon receiving the Holy Spirit, not needing to be replenished by any outside force. We see this in the life of Jesus. Throughout His earthly ministry, He never once prayed to the Father for more power. He was powered from within by the Holy Spirit.
It’s the same with us today. All of God’s power became domiciled in your spirit when you received the Holy Spirit. You don’t need to pray to God for more power, or for Him to send His power down. He already did by sending the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, and the opening scripture confirms that you received this power into you when you received the Holy Spirit.
In John 5:26 (AMP) Jesus said, “For even as the Father has life in Himself and is self-existent, so He has given to the Son to have life in Himself and be self-existent.” In the same way, if you’re born again and have received the Holy Spirit, the life in you is the same life God has. The power you wield doesn’t come from above anymore; it’s independently resident in you.
You can put this power to work anywhere, anytime, because it’s independent of any other power; it doesn’t need help from God, man or angels. With this consciousness, you can change anything and bring forth—prosperity, health, solutions and new ideas—as you activate that power within you. 2 Corinthians 4:7 says “…we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” There’s power in you to do the impossible. Blessed be God!
I have within me the inherent dynamic ability to cause changes. I take full advantage of my divine abilities in Christ and effect changes in and around me today. I am full of God’s might, and function by His power and glory today,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
