The Power Inside You

The Power Inside You

The Title sounds like some New Age Mysticism, doesn't it? Well, it is not because the Power is not your power. It is the Holy Spirit that lives inside a Holy Ghost, Fire baptized Christian. Think about that. The Power of God rests inside you. God lives inside you. Jesus's Spirit, the Holy Spirit, rests inside you. The same Anointing Jesus got when he was baptized by John the Baptist rests inside you.

Jesus said we'd do greater works than Him. "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." (John 14:12) (KJV) Basically, if you believe on Jesus, greater works shall you do because Jesus takes your prayers to the Father. Not for your glory, but His Glory. God loves a willing vessel. He can do wonders through a willing vessel.

Honestly, none of us can perform miracles. We have our God-given talents, but even they are God-given. But, when you are a Christian and Baptized with the Holy Spirit, the power of Almighty God rests inside you waiting to do good works, greater works than Jesus did, through you.

The same power than burned the bush but did not consume it that Moses saw, the same power that gives the breath of life to all life, the same power that brought the rains to flood the earth in Noah's time, the same power that raised Lazarus from the dead, the same power that rose Christ from the dead and ascended Him into heaven, and the list goes on, lives inside you.

I think of the Holy Spirit as Jesus's Spirit. It's just easier to think of God that way. "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:2) (KJV) God is the father, Jesus is the Christ, and the Holy Spirit is the power. All three work together in perfect harmony and all are one, but the one is three. The Godhead seems complicated to fathom with our feeble human minds so I just see the Holy Ghost as Jesus's Spirit. As far as I'm aware, the Holy Spirit seems okay with me seeing Him that way.

Think about WHO lives inside you: The Holy Spirit. We know God is everywhere, is all knowing, all powerful. And, Satan and his ilk, are stuck being at one place at one time. So, therefore, Satan and his minions can't be all powerful, all knowing, or present everywhere like God is. Satan has power, but it is limited, and limited to where he is. God, on the other hand, has NO limits. God can read your mind, Satan can't. Jesus is in heaven interceding on our behalf, but yet He's right there in the same room you are. So is God the Father. But, the Holy Spirit actually lives inside all believers.

You are only limited by your knowledge of the Bible. Basically, what you've read and studied. And, of course, when Scripture pops into your head, you know that's the work of the Holy Spirit, right? He brings them to your remembrance. I actually think, but can't prove, our minds were designed with the Word of God in mind. In other words, Scripture has a natural place in our heads and our hearts.

In Hebrew 10:16-17, it says, "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more." (KJV)

We supposed to keep His word close to us, etch them on our hearts. "My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart." (Proverbs 7:1-3) (KJV)

In the old testament, individuals had to write them on the tablet of their hearts, BUT, in the New Testament, God writes them on our hearts himself. Embrace the Word, and God will write it on your heart Himself. That's the Holy Spirit at work.

Even then, if we are only willing to get the fact the awesome power of God lives within us, we really can do anything if we let God do His work.

So, when you pray for someone, realize God is right there hearing your prayer, Jesus is taking it to the Father (John 14:12) and God is answering at the speed of thought.

Speed of thought: God does everything by the speed of thought. God is not limited to time, space travel, an airplane ride. He's literally everywhere. We can't even comprehend God's being. He's his own dimension while we live in the physical and angels, demons, fallen angels and Satan lives in the spiritual realm. God resides in all three. In some religions, God is seen as part of the universe. But, in Christianity, God created the universe and is separate from it, but is everywhere at the same time. If you were to travel to Mars, God would be there, with you on the ship and still back on earth. Only God can do that. Angels, as powerful as they are, are limited to being at one place at one time. Same with Satan and his idiot crew.

Anyway, think about WHO lives inside you when you pray (all wars are fought in prayer) and what He can accomplish through you. The battle is the Lord's, but prayer is our weapon along with our knowledge of God's Word.

And, Who is the Word? "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1) (KJV) Jesus is the Word. The Bible is your hand, or on your phone or on your computer, is Jesus in written form. That's why the Bible is alive, and Scriptures can pop off the page at you.

"But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matt 4:4) (KJV) The Bible is that Word. Live by it. The more you know, the better you are.
