7.15.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on the Holy Spirit. Part 4. Divine power.

PRAYER: I replied to over 70 emails today with prayer requests. God knows each one of these by name. Pray that God would hold these precious prayers in His hands and answer in His time.

DEVOTION: Smith speaks about a “Double Cure” in this first chapter. I love, love, love this paragraph.

“My friend, you need a double cure. You first need saving and cleansing and then the baptism of the Holy Spirit, until the old man never rises anymore, until you are absolutely dead to sin and alive to God by His Spirit and know that old things have passed away. When the Holy Spirit gets possession of a person, he is a new man entirely – his whole being becomes saturated with divine power. We come a habitation of Him who is all light, all revelation, all power, and all love. Yes, God the Holy Spirit is manifested within us in such a way that it is glorious.”

Saturated with divine power. Let that sink in for a minute. You see, I think that most of us feel as though this power is not here. Not available to us or not even an option to actually talk about. But…as I’ve read more and more and as I’ve spoken to more and more people about this, as I believe what I read in the Bible, this power is here. It’s within us because of the Spirit.

This power is alive in you and me as believers and followers of Christ. Oh that our hearts would believe and our minds would not be so focused on worldly things. Oh that our hearts and minds would let Jesus flow through them like raging waters in a river after a storm.

This is the life I’m looking for. To be completely saturated in divine power. Completely beholden to Christ. Nothing else.

Father, that we might let go of it all and be focused on You and only You. That our hearts would set aside the things of this world. That our minds would not be tempted by the trivial things that tempt us here. But…that our hearts and minds would be solely focused on what it means to be Jesus to each other and to our neighbors.

Father, let us be saturated in your divine power.

    I know I am renewed when I’m filled by the holy spirit. My words are clearer, my sight is brighter and my outcome for the day is truer. God is good in all he does and sees. He knows is and shares his love, mercy and grace. Be filled today and every day.

    I know I’m filled with the Holy Spirit. My husband tells me all the time that I’m spending more time doing church related things – attending church more frequently, attending Bible study, listening mostly to Christian radio stations, worshiping multiple times a week with you, Dave. I told him I’ve always been, as he calls me, a “church lady.” I guess I’m just diving a bit deeper than I used to.

    I’m filled with the Holy Spirit and that uplifts me…..gives me hope. Helps me to know that in times of trouble, I’m not alone.

    Amen ! ” alive to God and dead to sin “, amazing words that enable us- only through and in the power of Gods Holy Spirit, through each and every season of life, we are given this choice, each and every single day to be alive to God and dead to sin. Romans 6:11 Prayers up for all !!!!!
