PLUG INTO THE POWER (3)


Then went Samson down, and his father and his mother, to Timnath, and came to the vineyards of Timnath: and, behold, a young lion roared against him. And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand:but he told not his father or his mother what he had done. (Judges 14:5-6 KJV)

In the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit would visit people but never permanently dwelt in anybody. Samson was raised by God to deal with the oppression of the children of Israel by the Philistines. He was a great deliverer sent to save people in his time. The spirit of God would come upon him and through the spirit he would accomplish extra ordinary things.

As he travelled to Timnath one day, he came to the vineyards and a young lion roared against him. It was young and full of strength. Under normal circumstances it would have made a feast of Samson but thank God for the Holy Spirit. At that moment he came mightily upon Samson. The physical strength caused him to face the lion. He tore it apart as he would have tore apart a kid.

As you go through life and arrive in your vineyards, places of your increase and fruitfulness, don’t be surprised if lions roar against you. The devil is an enemy of your fruitfulness, increase and progress. As he roars against you, he intends to bring fear in you, to cause you to flea and even to devour you. Take charge and make use of that power of the Holy Spirit that is in you.

Don’t ignore those roaring lions, you have power to overcome them. Don’t fear them, the Holy Spirit is available to cause you to triumph. When Samson visited the carcass of the lion some days later, he found there a swarm of bees and honey in the carcass. He took it and ate it and also shared with his parents.

When you overcome those challenges, you will access the honey that is in the victories. When you run away or avoid the challenges, you deprive yourself of great things ahead.

I pray for you that every obstacle that faced you be overcome today by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Declare this,
By the Spirit of God I am slaying lions and accessing the honey that is stored up in my victories.

PLUG INTO THE POWER (2)


And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the Lord hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship; And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work. (Exodus 35:30-33 KJV)

When the Holy Spirit came on Bezaleel, his career was totally transformed. Not only did he receive wisdom, understanding and knowledge but the works of His hands were transformed. His work became distinguished.

The Holy Spirit goes beyond just making you a good Christian. He influences every facet of your life. His mission is to enable you to live better and to become distinguished in all you do. It really doesn’t matter what your career is, the Holy Spirit can breathe a special life into it and make you prolific.

I encourage you today to prepare to amaze the world with this power. Your special gifts will be thoroughly honed by the Holy Spirit in this season. The nations will surely be blessed by your manifestation. You are carrying answers for this generation and the Holy Spirit, the very power of God will help you deliver these answers.

I pray that everything that your hands touch be blessed in Jesus’ name. I pray that the excellence the Holy Spirit is bringing in your life opens doors for you to appear before great man.

Declare this,
These hands are creators of uniqueness. I will change the world through the power of the Holy Spirit that is in me. I am distinguished and special because greater is he that is in me.

PLUG INTO THE POWER (1)

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 KJV)

The Holy Spirit is synonymous with power. He is the essence of God’s glory. Through Him, God has accomplished great things in the world. It is amazing that God the Father found it fit to decorate His children with this majestic power.

The Holy Spirit makes you an effective billboard; an advert to showcase the abilities of God. You become a witness to the world of the awesomeness of God. The disciples were fearful, and with no definite direction after the death and ascension of Jesus. They took heed to His word to tarry in Jerusalem until they were empowered from above.

When the power came, they were emboldened. They were able to go out and face what they feared. You too are a candidate of exploits today. With the power of the Holy Spirit, you can cause to flee that which you previously fled from. You can challenge that which kept you a slave and overcome it. By the power of the Holy Spirit, you can change your status from failure to success, poverty to riches, sickness to health and defeat to victory. Yes, the world will marvel at your manifestation.

Activate that power and break the fruitless routines. In you lies greatness that can turn around your world. With this power, the disciples turned the world upside down.

I pray for you, that the Spirit of God will take over everything that concerns you and use you to change the world.

Declare this,
I am a world shaker born for such a time as this to demonstrate the power of God.

ASSURANCE

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16 KJV)

The sacrifice by our Lord Jesus on the cross brought to us a number of things but the one I want to focus on today is ASSURANCE. The word assurance simply means that we can be confident of a certain result each time we come to Him.

Time and again, there are needs that come into our lives. These can vary and range from family, financial, health not only but to mention a few. When these needs come, it is important for one to have assurance, a certainty that there is someone who can bring a resolve to them.

I am reminded of a time when I was young and had just left college. The nation was going through a recession in the economy. There were no jobs. It was a great need that faced me, how was I going to survive? How would it make it in the face of all this?

Because of the assurance we have, the word here is express. Let us come “boldly” to the throne of grace. The reason for boldness is that there is assurance, the price was paid already so we can be confident. There must be no reservation or doubt! The word boldly here in the original Greek is the word parresia; which means out-spokenness, frankness or bluntness. Yes, this is the attitude we must carry in our prayers as we approach the throne of grace. Not apologetic but confident!

Why can we do this? Because of assurance of the fact that the price was paid. If we back track a bit and look at verse 14 and 15 we see the reason why we ought to be bold.

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:14-15 KJV)

Our High Priest, the mediator of the covenant we are in Jesus Christ is our example. He won the victory for us. As we approach, we must be confident that we will obtain mercy and find grace to help in times of need. The mercy and the grace of God matches every type of need. When you have His grace in your situation, you are guaranteed of victory. Approach today, without fear or reservation!

I pray for you that you develop the discipline to approach the throne of grace in prayer.

Declare this,
Thank you Lord for your mercy and grace. These are my guards for an assured future in Jesus’ name.
