THE ENERGY OF THE SPIRIT

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES MONDAY, 8TH JULY. 

THE ENERGY OF THE SPIRIT BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.

Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily (Colossians 1:29).

In  our  opening  verse,  Paul  refers  to  the  inherent ability,  the  energy  of  the  Spirit  at  work  in  him. This  isn’t  exclusive  to  Paul  but  to  each  and  every  one of  us  that  has  the  Holy  Spirit.  Like  Paul,  be  conscious of this divine energy at work in you. A GIFT FOR YOU

It  makes  no  difference  what  challenges  you face  in  the  course  of  your  day;  there’s  a  force—an empowerment—at  work  in  you  to  blaze  through  the barriers.  It’s  the  energy  of  the  Spirit.  The  Apostle  Paul referenced  this  same  power  in  2  Corinthians  3:5  when he  said  by  the  Spirit,  “Not  that  we  are  sufficient  of ourselves  to  think  any  thing  as  of  ourselves;  but  our sufficiency is of God.”

The energy of the Spirit

We  have  a  sufficiency;  we  have  the  ability  of God’s  Spirit  at  work  in  us,  because  we  have  the  light of  God  in  us.  The  Bible  says,  “…Christ  in  you,  the  hope of  glory”  (Colossians  1:27).  The  power  of  God  is  at work  in  you,  coursing  through  your  being.  Become conscious of this.

The  Apostle  Paul  was  conscious  of  this  divine energy  working  in  him  from  within.  The  word  he used  in  our  opening  verse  for  “working”  is  the  Greek, “energeia”  which  refers  to  superhuman  energy. Paul,  filled  with  the  Holy  Spirit,  recognized  that  the “working,”  the  operational  power  of  God,  was  in  him. What a consciousness!

Have  you  come  to  the  point  in  your  life  where you  know  and  you  can  say  confidently  that  there’s a  superhuman  power  at  work  in  you?  You  ought  to know.  You’re  not  labouring  or  striving  by  your  physical might  or  human  ingenuity,  but  by  the  energy  of  the Spirit.

This  energy  isn’t  at  work  in  you  sparingly,  but mightily,  meaning  that  you  can’t  wear  out!  What  a  life you’ve  got!  Now  you  can  further  understand  Paul’s submission  by  the  Spirit  in  2  Corinthians  4:16:  “For which  cause  we  faint  not;  but  though  our  outward man  perish,  yet  the  inward  man  is  renewed  day  by day.”

CONFESSION
My  potentials  are  limitless,  because  I’m  divinely endued  to  live  the  life  of  glory,  according  to  God’s mighty  power  which  works  in  me  mightily!  With  that divine  ability  working  in  me,  I  achieve  results  that are  beyond  my  physical  ability.  The  Holy  Ghost  lives in  me;  He  works  in  me!  He  carries  out  His  ministry through me! Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY:
Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Micah 3:8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
