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.
