Where Is His Power

Where can we find the same power Jesus had while He walked on the earth with us, going about healing all who were oppressed by the enemy?

Ephes. 3 v 20.....Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us........

According to this scripture the power is in us. When Jesus left the earth He left us with His power, the Holy Spirit in us.

Acts 1 v 5....for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.....

Acts 1 v 8...But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.....

When we are in need of the power of God in our lives, we have only to look into ourselves. God resides within us as the Holy Spirit. First we must know what His will in our situation is, and only then can we tap into the power that is within us.

Remember, the power of God can only be found where the will of God is known.

Let me put it this way. Say we were going down the road and we had a flat tire. What would be the first thing we would do? Get our spare out of the trunk to fix it. Why? Because we know where the spare is and we know what to do with it. We have knowledge in that situation.

Well, say we are going down the road and our car just stops running. What would we do? First we would have to find out what the problem is with the car, so that we can have it repaired. How do we know where to look? We call a mechanic, someone who has knowledge of the situation. We then trust them to fix it.

The same is true with whatever problems we are facing today. We only have to find in His word what He says His will is about our situation and then trust Him when He says we have the power within us to overcome any situation. We have to realize exactly Who the Holy Spirit is that resides within us. We have to realize that God's will for us is always good.

John 16 v 33..."These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, "I have overcome the world."......

We must have knowledge of His will in the situation so that we can trust in His power to bring us through. Where do we find this knowledge? Romans 10 v 17 Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 8 v 37...Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us......

Recognize the enemy for who he is, sickness, diseases, poverty, malice, strife, weakness of any sort, and then recognize who you are in Christ Jesus. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. You have the Holy Spirit residing in you, the same power that worked in Christ Jesus now works in you. You have authority over the enemy. AMEN!

Ephes. 3 v 16-19....that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strenghthened with might (power) through His Spirit in the inner man, (Holy Spirit), that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend (have knowledge of God's will) with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height, to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; (your own understanding) that you may be filled with all the fullness of God......

What is God's will for us? Where do we find His Perfect will? Where do we find the answers to these questions, so that we may find the Power of Jesus?
