It’s The Same Spirit…
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you
If you’re born again, be glad that the Holy Spirit dwells, not only with you, but in you. He’s your indwelling Comforter, Counsellor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby. With Him in your life, success is guaranteed all the way. He’s the one that brings the power of God into your life to be effective in your Christian walk. He also teaches you the Word so you can know God’s perfect will for your life and live in it.
No one who has received the Holy Spirit should live an ordinary life. Think about it: this Holy Spirit you’ve received is the same One that worked with David when he came face-to-face with a lion and a bear, and slew both beasts with his bare hands on both occasions (1 Samuel 17:34-35). He enabled him as a stripling to defeat and decapitate the great Goliath of Gath, the champion of the Philistines.
Again, the same Holy Spirit that lives in you today is the One who worked with Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Elisha, Solomon and ultimately the Lord Jesus Himself. The mighty works He did through the prophets of old were not mere stories; they were recorded for our learning and inspiration. They are to let you know what the Spirit of God can do in your life as well, if you’d yield to him. The prophets of old didn’t have the fullness of the Spirit, for they weren’t born again. This should let you know how much your life ought to be even more supernatural as a result of having the Holy Spirit live in you!
The One who resides in you is greater and more powerful than all the forces in the world! He didn’t come to be dormant and quietly nestle away in you. 1 John 4:4 says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” Put His power in you to work today.
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me the Holy Spirit, to live in me in His fullness, infusing me with dynamic ability to effect positive changes in my world. I’m a victor in Christ Jesus, living the extraordinary life of excellence that you’ve ordained for me.
