Are You Walking in God’s Power Today?

Paul said, that when he preached, he didn’t not do it in his own wisdom but by the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 2:4). In other words, the Holy Spirit gave him the words to say and when he spoke God’s word, the power of the Holy Spirit was released to change people’s lives and to heal them.

In John 6:63, Jesus is recorded as saying that it is the Spirit that brings life and that his words were spirit and life. The Bible is God’s word, inspired by him through the Holy Spirit (2 Tim 3:15-17). The Holy Spirit reveals God’s word (the Bible) to us (John 14:26). The word in our mouths is God’s: “sword of the Spirit” with which we can defeat all the attacks of satan on our lives (Eph 6: 17).

For us to have the power of God’s word to affect change and cause satan to flee from us (James 4:7) we must have the word living and abiding in us (1 Peter 1:23). This means we need to spend time to get the word down into our spirits so that it comes out of our mouths automatically when we need it. Now here is the rub. We need to make God’s word our priority, there are no short cuts.

Dynamite

God does not leave us alone (John 14:15-18). He sent us his Holy Spirit, his power (Acts 1:8). Jesus received the same Holy Spirit when John the Baptist baptized him in water (Matt 3:16). Jesus needed this power to flow from him when he ministered upon the earth (Luke 8:46).

We are told that this is the same power that raised Christ from the dead and that this power will bring life to our mortal bodies: “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” (Rom 8:11). This Greek word for power is where we get our English word dynamite (Eph 1:19-20). We have his dynamite power on the inside of us!

As we discover God’s promises to us in the Bible and step out in faith, the Holy Spirit can go to work to change us and use us. Jesus said: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:12). Yes, he said that we are empowered to do the same works as he did on this earth and even greater works! Let’s allow his power to change us and flow from us to a hurting world.

God Has Dynamite on the Inside of You

 “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death” (Phil 3:10). Paul said that his goal in life was to know Christ and the power of his resurrection. Think what power (the Greek word dunamis) was needed to raise Jesus from the dead (Eph 1:19-20). We get our English word dynamite from the Greek word dunamis.

That same power dwells in us (Rom 8:11), brings life to our mortal bodies, empowers us to be witnesses for him (Acts 1:8) and in fact, makes us like Jesus (2 Cor 3:17-18). Wow and double Wow.

Eph 1:18 also indicates that God’s power (the Greek word kratos) in us is the power of dominion or authority. As born-again believers, we walk in the authority of Jesus over the devil. Jesus took back all power and authority from satan through his (Jesus) death and resurrection (Eph 1:21-22). What a victory we have in Jesus. But Paul also went on to say, in Philippians 3:10, that we must also be willing to fellowship in Christ’s sufferings and death. We have to die to self and live for Christ, no matter how much persecution or difficulty this may bring; are we willing? The benefits are truly amazing.
