Power for Victory
Power for Victory
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10: 3-4
The Spirit of God is power, love and a sound mind. It is not by your might nor by human power but by the power of the Lord, the Spirit of God, says God. The power of God resides in HIS children. It is the same power which raised Christ from the dead through the Holy Spirit.
God gives you the power to overcome sin. His Spirit gives you power to overcome the difficulties of being a human. His Spirit gives you victory over your bodily desires. The Spirit of God in you gives you power over the sinful flesh. Having the Holy Spirit in you is equal to having the power of God. You have the power to boldly speak the message of Gospel.
The issue is most Christians do not put the power of God into action. If you don’t turn your computer on, it will not work. God has given you the power to kill and destroy sin in your life. The enemy wants you to not have victory, to live in defeat, and never appropriate the power of the Spirit of God. When you live by the Spirit and not the flesh you have victory over the sin.
The appropriation of the power of God is like dynamite in you. God’s power is explosive which kills and destroys the sin in your life. You will always have a battle of flesh versus Spirit, however as you experience God’s powers to kill sin, the flesh decreases and the Spirit increases. You begin experiencing more and more victory over sin through the power of God. You are working out your salvation in fear and trembling.
You have the power for victory in you through the Holy Spirit, appropriated in God’s power of love, peace, faithfulness, forgiveness, gentleness, mercy and grace today. Love as Christ loved you. Forgive as Christ has forgiven you.
God loves you.
