SATURDAY DAY 31

Scripture Reading: Acts 1:8

The Holy Spirit is the source of power for all Christians.

Without the Holy Spirit, we are powerless, we cannot bear adequate fruit, we cannot be able to do the will of God. The Holy Spirit is our Helper, our Comforter and Consoler, our best Friend and our God. The Holy Spirit is the greatest and highest Spirit existing; the Spirit of the Father and the Son.

Everyone needs the Holy Spirit for we are temples of the Holy Spirit and He is supposed to own our lives. The word of God says in Acts 1:8: “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.”

The Holy Spirit gives power to all Christians, we have this power and we should exercise it. Some Christians have been deceived by the devil into thinking that they have no power. The devil does not want Christians to know who they are. The devil wants to deceive as many children of God as he can, making lion cubs think they are sheep.

The Holy Spirit is the source of power and if the spirit of God is in you, you have this power. All you need to do is to fan it to flame through constant prayers and fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Always spend time with God and you will see yourself grow in Him.

Through the Holy Spirit, demons can be cast out, sick- ness can be healed, bondage can be broken, restoration can take place. You have this power, begin to exercise it today. Divine power is unlimited and can do all things, even the impossible. When His divine power is present, salvation, healing, deliverance, joy, peace, blessings be- come available. In Luke 5:17, God’s divine power saved and healed a paralyzed man; in John 5, a man with a challenging situation of 38 years was completely healed and saved; another woman with a 12-year infirmity was healed. All these are manifestations of the power of the Holy Spirit. These same powers are resident in true Christians. Just remain docile to the promptings of the Holy Spirit; open up to him and listen. God’s divine power is available to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can think, ask or pray about.
