BE CONSCIOUS OF THE POWER THAT WORKS IN YOU – PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME
MONDAY, 17TH OCTOBER 2016
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen (Ephesians 3:20-21).
2 Corinthians 4:7 says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the Excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” The Holy Spirit is the power of the Godhead and He lives in you in His fullness: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…” (Acts 1:8). His power is working in your spirit. Our theme verse says, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us….” What an inspiring thought!
Notice that it didn’t say, according to the power that worketh in heaven.” This explains that you have a role in the operations of the miraculous and supernatural in your life. The glory of God is manifested in your life according to the power that works in you. You can trust this power, because it’s the power of the Holy Spirit. Activate and put it to work at all times, and it’ll produce results for you.
Even though God, in His sovereignty, can cause certain things to happen for you, He doesn’t want to work independent of you. Some Christians often feel discouraged and frustrated because they’re “praying to God to do something for them,” yet to no avail. The issue isn’t with God; they’re the ones to activate the power of God in them, to bring about the desired changes.
Become conscious that God lives in you. His power is in your spirit. Activate that power to work for you by conscious meditation on the Word, and speaking in tongues. Bring that power to bear on anything, or any area of your life. Refuse to think failure, defeat, or impossibilities; acknowledge that the ability of the Spirit has been granted you to achieve supernatural results, and speak accordingly.
Christ is my life and my sufficiency; He energizes me through and through and His grace is sufficient for me in all things. I can do all things through the supernatural ability of the Spirit that’s at work in me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
2 CORINTHIANS 3:5
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
