(You’ve Got Inherent Power)
TO THE BIBLE: Acts 1:8
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Andrea was so weak, she could hardly stand up to do anything. She had been bedfast due to a debilitating sickness she contracted, and she thought life was over for her. One day, she read Acts 1:8, and by faith, received the Holy Spirit. Soon as she did, she began to speak in tongues, and, suddenly, strength surged through her whole being and she stood up and ran!
That’s the inherent power of the believer in Christ. As a new creation in Christ Jesus, you’re powered from within. Inherent in you is the dynamic ability to cause changes. This power became resident in you upon receiving the Holy Spirit, not needing to be replenished by any outside force.
We see this in the life of Jesus. He never once prayed to the Father for more power. He was powered from within by the Holy Spirit. It’s the same with you today. All of God’s power became domiciled in your spirit when you received the Holy Spirit. You don’t need to pray to God for more power, or for Him to send His power down. He already did by sending the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, and the opening scripture confirms that you received that power into you when you received the Holy Spirit.
In John 5:26 (AMP), Jesus said, “For even as the Father has life in Himself and is self-existent, so He has given to the Son to have life in Himself and be self-existent.” In the same way, if you’re born again and have received the Holy Spirit, the life in you is the same life God has. You can put this power to work anywhere, anytime, because it’s independent of any other power; it doesn’t need help from God, man or angels. There’s power in you to do the impossible.
Mark 16:17; Acts 10:38; 2 Corinthians 4:7
I have within me the inherent dynamic ability to cause changes. I take full advantage of my divine abilities in Christ and effect changes in and around me today. I am full of God’s might, and function by His power and glory today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
