The Spirit of God, which raised Jesus from the dead, is also alive in His followers. The “incredible greatness of God’s power”, “the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead…”, this power is in us, available for all who believe Him. I want to understand the incredible greatness of God’s power–this same power that raised Christ and is available to every believer. I want to live with this power working in me and through me!
Inside every believer, we have an endless supply of life changing, world changing, death defying power, and yet we so often live in defeat and despair because we allow the Spirit to become dormant and quiet inside us, drowned out by the noise of this world. The Holy Spirit must be so frustrated with me and with so many other believers as we wallow in silly, changeable things rather than take up our sword of the Spirit, armed with truth and knowledge and faith and fight! Fight for our mental health, our physical health, our friends and family who are lost and hurting, and a dying world! It is so much easier and comfortable to live in my tiny world and never look up and out—but God is calling every believer to a world changing, life changing faith and strength in Him and I don’t want to miss it!
