(You Can Do All Things By The Spirit!)
TO THE BIBLE: Luke 4:14 JMNT
“And Jesus returned, in the power of the Spirit, to Galilee; and fame concerning him spread in all the region around them.”
When you’re filled with the Spirit, you’ll be full of power. You wouldn’t need to muster boldness when challenges come your way; the Spirit of God will take charge of you, and you wouldn’t see, talk or act like an ordinary man.
To experience the power of the Holy Spirit in your life, you must be filled with Him constantly.
Ephesians 5:18-20 (KJV) shows us the way to get ourselves filled with the Spirit: “…Be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Jesus was constantly full of the power of the Spirit, and He was conscious of it (Acts 10:38).
The Apostle Paul was also conscious of the power of the Spirit at work in him when he said, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13) and “For this I labor…striving with all the superhuman energy which He so mightily enkindles and works within me” (Colossians 1:29 AMPC). This superhuman power is what you need to be an effective witness for Christ.
The tremendous miracles, signs and wonders done by the Lord and His apostles weren’t recorded in the Bible just so we could read and marvel at what they did. They were written as examples for us, to inspire us and let us know we can do the same in our day through the power of the same Spirit. Hallelujah!
Micah 3:8; Acts 1:8
I can do all things by the power of the Spirit that’s at work in me mightily! That power is active in me today and is released into my world to bring about changes and transformation in the lives of men and women, in the Name of Jesus.
