The Implication of the Power in You

The Implication of the Power in You

Scripture: Ephesians 3:20 and Acts 1:8

Ephesians 3:20-Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. KJV

Acts 1:8-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. KJV

Reflection.

Hello everyone. During my study and meditation on the scripture for today, I came across a key phrase that, in my opinion, calls for extra emphasis when it comes to our founding scriptures. For us to fully appreciate what God will do for those of us who are believers, it is imperative that we understand what the word “Power” means and how it functions. In both of these verses, the word “power” is very similar. THE IMPLICATION OF YOUR POWER

The dictionary defines Power as- “the ability to do something or act in a particular way, especially as a faculty or quality.” While In physics, power is the amount of energy transferred or converted per unit time. In the International System of Units, the unit of power is the watt.

From the biblical perspective, He again says in 2 Thessalonians 1:11 that “every resolve for good and every work of faith” that you and I accomplish is by means of his “power.” Power is the energy or working of God by which we are saved (Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 1:18, 24).

The Hebrew word for Power is Dunamus-meaning, dynamite, an explosion.

More specifically, the book of Ephesians makes it abundantly clear that each of us possesses a power that could allow us to draw the plentiful resources, supply, and provisions that originate from God. Why are believers like us unable to carry out these promises, according to Ephesians in the Bible, is the question that needs to be asked. Is there a possibility that something is missing, and what can we do to ensure that these promises are fulfilled in our daily lives? After some consideration, I realised that, indeed, we are fully capable of carrying out these obligations in accordance with the power that resides within us.

HOW DO I GET THIS POWER?

In Acts 1:8, Jesus made good on his promise to us that we would receive Power after the Holy Spirit had been poured out on us. My research revealed that Jesus’ followers obtained this Power through the simple act of “Waiting.” Going to solitary places to pray and fast without food or water is one of the best practices any believer can do to obtain this Power. Waiting on God requires praying and fasting without either of these things. There is no alternative to waiting, praying, and fasting in order to obtain this Power; this is the only way to get it. It is no wonder that David pleaded with God in Psalm 51:11, “Do not take the Holy Spirit from me,” because he understood the significance of the Holy Spirit, who is responsible for bringing the power and manifestation of God within each of us.

The Holy Spirit will come upon you as you wait on the Lord, and this will be the source of the power that you receive. Because of this, the fulfillment of Ephesians 3:20 will be the result of the power that is already present in you, as promised in Acts 1:8.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, we rely on you for your explosive power, which is the presence of the Holy Spirit, which would enable us to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we think or imagine we are capable of doing. Thank you for being our source of power. In the name of Jesus, may the Holy Spirit continue to make Himself known to us in a new way each day. Amen.
