You Shall Receive Power
Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! Sing out the honor of His name; Make His praise glorious. Say to God, “How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You. .” Psalm 66:1-3
“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.” Acts 1:8
As Christians and believers we were created to be vessels of power. The God of all power, resources and unlimited might and riches lives in us and we are to demonstrate it and cause all our enemies to submit to this power. God’s word is unchanging:
And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. Acts 4:33
And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people. Acts 6:8
And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:4-5
For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power. 1 Corinthians 4:20
There is no excuse if we don’t have power we are to repent and pray to God until we get power. And not just some power but great power just like the Apostles had. Christianity is a religion of power and without power it is nothing! No matter how religious we are, Pharaoh won’t let us go without a demonstration of God’s power. Our grammar, our education or our money makes no difference. It is impossible to triumph without power! The word triumph here simply means a walkover, where our opponent becomes afraid to even enter the ring with us. We become too much for the enemy. This takes power! And God has this kind of power and He will give it to us just for the asking.
Every enemy of ours is to suffer devastation before our presence! Jesus Christ was never defeated or dismayed by any power or anybody or anything. As a son of man and son of God He demonstrated power over everything. And so should we! The power that made heaven and earth and raised Jesus Christ is in us and as we yield to and release that power God will do great and wonderful things. His word is unchanging:
and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power Ephesians 1:19
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, Ephesians 3:20
We are to come out of religion and step into power and authority! It’s time to walk into our liberty! It’s time to get into our Canaan, into our land flowing with milk and honey. It’s time to be set free every form of captivity, through the instrumentality of power. When God’s power is in place, we’re in charge. When His power is at work in us, we keep reigning! We were created to be a creature of power and to demonstrate it. The kingdom of God is not a kingdom of theology, it’s a kingdom of power! (1 Cor. 4:20).
Enemies don’t submit through the greatness of tears! Our liberty is a function of the degree of God’s power at work in our life. Darkness has no respect for position, status or possessions. Our enemies will not submit because of anything in the natural realm but because the greatness of God’s power is manifesting through our life. God’s power is mighty! God’s power is superior to every other power!
Why should we live without power when w e are in the day of God’s power! It is time to say to failure, “Go!” and it goes; to say to abundance, “Come!”, and it comes. It takes power to do this. Power that we can have just for the asking. We need to ask the Lord to show us His right hand. His hand and arm will provoke favor on our behalf and bring us into our liberty. Power is released when we talk to God from our heart. God’s word is true:
We have heard with our ears, O God, Our fathers have told us, The deeds You did in their days, In days of old: You drove out the nations with Your hand, But them You planted; You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out. For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, Nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, Because You favored them. You are my King, O God; Command victories for Jacob. Through You we will push down our enemies; Through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us. Psalm 44:1-5
“Behold, I give unto you power…” Luke 10:19
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power…” John 1:12
We enter into God’s kingdom with a power gift package. Until we receive Jesus as the Son of God, we don’t have access to the power of God. We are a child of power. Power is the foundation of our new life in Christ Jesus. The new birth is an initiation into the realm of power. Just as people are initiated into a cult, the new birth initiates us into another world—the world of power. The day we receive Jesus, we become initiated into the realm of covenant power. It is the day natural life gives way to eternal life. Everything about us becomes new! Our citizenship changes—we are no more earthly, but now heavenly. We are guarded and surrounded by heavenly immunities, as we walk in earthly places. Christ is the wisdom and power of God (1 Corinthian 1:24).
When Christ dwells in us, then the power of God is resident on our inside. Once we are saved, we become a power-loaded personality! Salvation brings you from the realm of weakness into the realm of power. God’s word is true:
“And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6
We must operate from the heavenly places where we are seated. Satan is not permitted to prevail in this realm. So, by destiny, all heavenly citizens are more than conquerors! Dwelling anywhere in the earthly places is dangerous. We were not created to seek after fortune, fame or wealth of the world but to have and demonstrate the power of God. We need the power of God today. It is the answer to all the harassments of the devil (Luke 10:19).
It is time for a heart-connection with heaven for a release of power. The time has come for God to hear our voice. We are to ask the Lord to cause us to see the reality of His power as recorded in His Word. And to tell Him we want to experience this power in our everyday life and we want more of the anointing. But the anointing of the Holy Spirit cannot come our way without prayer. The rains of the Spirit will only respond to effectual fervent prayer. This is the only switch that will turn the rain on—the kind of prayer that comes from the heart, not the head. A thirst that is genuine, established and acknowledged by the Lord, will open you up for the rain. God’s word is true:
“Ask of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain…” Zechariah 10:1
“And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” Acts 4:31
We don’t get power by wishing, we get it by praying. Not modern day prayer, but divinely approved ones. The kind we stay on at until the answer comes. No one picks power by the roadside. Every one that operates in the realm of power today went all-out for it. God’s word is unchanging:
“He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” Psalm 107:20
“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
We can do all things through Christ because He strengthens us to do the impossible. God’s Word is His Spirit in written form, and when it is absorbed into your spirit, you encounter power. There is enough power in the Word to heal, to bless, to prosper, to save, to deliver and to do whatever we need. We are to continue to believe God’s Word and continue to confess His promise in the face of what we see and what we feel. As believers it is disastrous to react on what we see, hear or feel. Instead of reacting to the senses produced by the world, we must act according to the Word spoken by God. His Word brings deliverance and the words of the world bring destruction. When we feel like giving up, we must quit going by what we feel. We must stand in faith and keep standing until the victory is manifested. God’s word is unchanging:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:10-13
