Do you ever think about what it would be like to have supernatural capabilities to stand up against the evils that confront you? Or perhaps you ever wonder what it would be like if you could walk in peace regardless of your circumstances? Or have inside information on dismantling your enemy’s plots?
But, with God on our side, we don’t have to imagine; as believers, we have access to the supernatural realm through the Holy Spirit, our Informant, Comforter, Helper, Advisor, and Standby. He comes to dwell inside each believer at the moment of salvation, empowering us supernaturally—yet, so many live defeated lives—despite all the power within.
Loose the power!
As for me, it’s not enough to know I have the power, just like it’s not enough to know I have a measure of faith if I don’t know how to utilize it to the mastery God wants me to; these divine attributes aren’t mere talking points but vital tools as servants of God.
How unfortunate it would be to allow the power afforded me to remain dormant and restrained by any means. That unsettling inquisitiveness is my motivation to write a blog about faith; writing these posts keeps me aware that I have unleashed powers deposited in me that I must explore.
An informed Christian is one too many for Satan.
The good news is that an informed Christian is one too many for Satan since we can multiply and spread the gospel. Can you picture what the world would be like if most, not even all, children of God would walk in the faith of the Holy Spirit and take their proper stance as more than conquerors?
No wonder the enemy wants to destroy our relationship with the Spirit and deceive us into believing we don’t have what it takes to be used by God. What a contradiction since we can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us (see Philippians 4:13 NKJV).
You got the power—release it to the glory of God!
By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence (2 Peter 1:3 NLT).
