Word for Word: Have You Received Power?
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS)
“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” (Acts 1:8).
Without empowerment, it’s very difficult to live effective Christian life. Empowerment by the Holy Spirit from above, also called anointing brings courage, boldness , wisdom as well as helping with a life of holiness. Have you received power from above?
If you have not yet been baptised in the Holy Spirit, cry to God for it . Every Christian needs empowerment for effective work in the kingdom and for effective Christian living. There are Christians who want to do the work of God, but FEAR has paralysed their inner being. It’s the anointing that remove our burden and destroy all yoke, according to the word of of God:
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing” ( Isaiah 10:27).
Jesus Himself as divine as He was from birth, needed to be empowered, according to the Bible:
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” (Acts 10:38).
You can be anointed again and again to overflowing. The bible tells us that King David ( the Psalmist) was anointed at least three times. No wonder he affirmed: “thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over” ( Psalm 23:5b). Based on his anointing, we can understand why he was so passionate about God .
Never forget, the anointing you have received from the good Lord is only for goodness. It enables us to set the oppressed free and win souls . Do not embark on any evil. In your thoughts, words and actions be an example for others to follow.
The LORD is our strength and rock. Jesus Himself quoted this scripture:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture is fulfilled in your ears” ( Luke 4:18-21).
Ask God in Christ for fresh anointing today.
Have a Spirit-filled new day in Christ Jesus.
Do no harm to anyone. The only debt you owe everyone you come across is LOVE.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, we pray for fresh anointing to make us effective in your kingdom in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Blood of Jesus! Blood of Jesus! Blood of Jesus.
My Love to Everyone!
Thank you Jesus for another day of LOVE.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
