(Let The Holy Spirit Take Control Over Your Life) ;
TO THE BIBLE Acts 1:8 NASB
“…You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
Some people truly desire to serve God with their lives, yet they find themselves struggling with several things that eventually get them miserable in life. The reasons for this are clear: it’s either they haven’t received the Holy Spirit, or they’re not yielded to Him. If indeed they’ve received Him to live in them, He’s not in charge of their lives. No one can successfully live the Christian life without the Holy Spirit! He’s the One that brings the power of God into your life to strengthen you, and for you to live effectively as a Christian. He teaches you the Word, so you can know God’s perfect will, and then guides you to live in and fulfill, your destiny in Christ.
With the Holy Spirit, your potentials are limitless. His presence in your life makes you energetic, fervent, efficient, excellent and bold. He’s not a mere influence; He’s the power of God, the active personality of the Godhead. Let Him take charge of your life, and there’ll be nothing you can’t do. He’s the help and power you need for all things. He gives you the dynamic ability to effect changes, accomplish any task, and change hopeless situations. Paul said, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). He knew that with the Holy Spirit, he had all he needed to live the transcendent life, and gloriously fulfill his divine destiny in Christ. 2 Corinthians 3:5 AMPC says: “Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient inability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God.” Become sufficient in His sufficiency. Yield to Him to work through you, and walk in you, and your struggles will be over. When He takes charge of your life, you’ll experience success, increase, progress and victories only.
John 16:14 AMPC
14 He will honor and glorify Me because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.
26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
The Lord is my help and my ability. He’s my strength and my sufficiency; therefore, I can do all things by His power that works in me mightily. I’m effective and effectual in the communication and expression of my faith. Glory to God!
