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)
Power in its many variations can mean many things. There is nothing as tragic as a lack of power where power must be applied. It is a blessing in any family to have at least one who has power. It is an opportunity to boast knowing that their matters can be solved quickly. Power can translate to financial power, political power, academic power and power of knowledge. We could also even look at mechanical power, electrical power and many other ways of its manifestation.
Well, in our family we are not just blessed with One who has power but this power has been passed on to all of us. Everything was happening too fast for the early Church. Just three years of effective ministry for Jesus. In that time when the disciples were just getting to know Him and understand His mission He was dead and hanging on the cross. After three days He was up and started appearing to them. It was a roller coaster of emotions! Before long He announced His departure to the ruffled disciples but here is the key… “You shall receive power…” This power is dunamis; it is force like the force of a huge army. A dynamic ability to cause changes!
His departure was technically an arrival on a large scale in the person of the Holy Spirit. The unleashing of the Holy Ghost into the world of believers, the very force and power of God! This only means believers should live a dynamic life! The army of heaven the Holy Spirit has come to dwell in those that receive Him! In the face of this power all other power wilts and surrenders.
This is the power that was on Samson when he picked the gates of a secure city and went uphill with them. This is the power that was on Peter when his shadow healed the sick in the streets. It is this power that was on Jesus Himself when He set free a man from a legion of demons.
This power that is beyond the analysis of man is on you today as His child. Do great things because you are powerful. Refuse to be bogged down by situations- any form of situation.
I do not lack power in any area as I am equipped with the very force of heaven which supersedes all the other forms of power available. I HAVE POWER!
