PRAYER: Please pray today for strength in your walk. For power.
DEVOTION: “I implore you…in the name of Jesus, that you should see that yo come right into all the mind of God. Jesus truly said, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.” (Acts 1:8). And I want you to know that “He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days” (v.3) He is all the time unfolding to every one of us the power of resurrection.”
Power. Where does your power come from? Your own strength? The strength of your flesh? Your mind?
Jesus gives us a different kind of power. A power that comes from a resurrection. A power that comes from Him, from heaven. This power lives in us. Lives in us when we accept that this Spirit lives in us. As stated in Acts from the verse above, we shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon us.
Ready for it? Ready for the power that comes from the Holy Spirit in you? I think so. I’m ready for a new kind of strength and power in my life. I’m ready for the wisdom that comes with it. I’m ready for the strength of the Spirit.
So, where does your power come from? The Spirit in you. Another reason to dig deep into who the Spirit is in our lives, so that we can gain access to this power that Jesus gives us. The Spirit in us gives us the power that Jesus promised us.
Father, today, we pray for power. We pray for your Spirit in us to bring us power and strength to live through these days. Power to overcome the troubles in life. Power to heal. Power to love. Power to forgive. We pray for this power today.
