Topic: He’s All You Need [Wednesday, August 2nd]
For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him (John 3:34).
From the words of Jesus in Acts 1:8, we discover the source of true power and how we can receive that power into our lives: it’s by receiving the Holy Spirit: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you….” The Holy Spirit is the embodiment of all power. So, if He lives in you, you don’t need to ask God for more power or for more anointing. The Holy Spirit didn’t come in a measure to give you a part of Himself, contrary to the understanding that some people have.
In the Old Testament, He only had to come upon God’s prophets, such as Moses, Samson, Samuel, David, Isaiah, etc., and the priests, judges, and kings of old. But the Bible says of Jesus, “For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him” (John 3:34). The Lord Jesus had the Holy Spirit in Him without measure.
The same Jesus, in John 20:21, said, “…as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” If Jesus required the full measure of the Spirit to do the work the Father sent Him, and He has sent us as the Father sent Him, why then would we be sent with a measure and not the fullness of the Spirit? God’s purpose for us in Ephesians 3:19 is that we be “…filled with all the fulness of God.”
The Holy Spirit came into you, to make His abode in you. He lives in you in all His glory, majesty, might, wisdom and strength. He’s everything you need to live transcendently and be a success for Jesus Christ.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the Holy Spirit has come to live and make His abode in me. I take advantage of His glorious presence in my life, and declare that I’m more than a man. I live out the supernatural life naturally, demonstrating the glory, wisdom and excellence of divinity. I’m joined to the Lord, and have become inseparable with Him, bearing fruits of His righteousness that’s inherent in my spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
