THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST

Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16 NLT)

The Holy Spirit is the greatest treasure we have. He lives in us, talks with us, teaches us want to do, how to do it, and when to do it. He is our companion. The truth is we are nothing without Him. We are the most fortunate generation to have experienced the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit is the source of our Power; power to accumulate wealth, power to cast out demons, power to heal diseases, power to defeat the enemy, etc. Jesus said you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.” (Acts 1:8 NLT)

The Spirit of God can make you do things in extraordinary ways. In the Old Testament, each time the Spirit of God came upon someone, that person did something beyond human comprehension. For instance, when the The Power of God came upon Elijah in 1 Kings 18:46, the scripture says he outran Ahab who was on his chariot all the way to Jezreel, which was about 23 miles.

Samson was able to tore a lion apart with his bare hands as he might have torn a young goat when the Spirit of God came upon him. (Judges 14:6 NIV84)
At other time too, he was able to kill thousand philistines with the jawbone of a donkey when the Spirit of God came upon Him. (Judges 15:14, 15 NLT)

Now all the Midianites, Amalekites and other eastern peoples joined forces and crossed over the Jordan and camped in the Valley of Jezreel. Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet, summoning the Abiezrites to follow him. (Judges 6:33, 34 NIV84)

In those days, the Spirit of God came upon them and they were able to do mighty works. They received Power each time they had such encounter. However, the Spirit of God lives in us now. Hallelujah! Our bodies are His temple.

Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, (1 Corinthians 6:19 NLT)

The Power that came upon Elijah, Samson, Gideon, Deborah, David, and the others is in you. Therefore when you come against any giant like David, don’t be troubled or dismayed. Trust in the Power you have on the inside of you. You are well able to defeat any giant. When people have taken the lead in life; buying houses, cars, better jobs, etc, never get jealous because the Holy Spirit can thrust you forward. You have Power to outrun them. When people are coming together against you like Gideon, know that God has equipped you with strength. You can defeat them with less energy. God will fight the battle for you. When encounter any uncomfortable situation like Samson before the lion, never be discouraged because you are more than able to tear that lion apart in Jesus’s Name.

Friend you are different from the people of the world. You have His Excellency the Holy Spirit on the inside. Nations of the world have trust in their weapons, so as believers, we must also rely on the Power we have on the inside of us. The Holy Spirit is all you need to live a stress free life, and to succeed in this life.
