I’m going to assume that most of you that have come to Faith Filled Food For Moms and Grandmothers are Christians. So of course you know the exact source of the Power within me and why I’m a Power Freak! But just in case you have stumbled across this site and are confused as to what in the world I am talking about?! Please visit Eternal Life!
So now that we are on the same page, just how does this Holy Spirit work in me and you? It is a mystery..a Powerful mystery! After we receive Jesus as our Savior the Holy Spirit comes to live in our very being.
I love that before the beginning of time God had a plan to give me and you His power to live a Godly life. This was His idea from the very beginning of time. It is part of God’s plan that we are filled with the Holy Spirit to glorify Him!
John 14:15-17 says “If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever- The Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”
John 14:23 says “Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”
What command? What teaching? This is it Luke 10:27 “He answered: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all you mind; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”
I am not saying that this is works orientated because the second we invite Jesus into our hearts we have the Holy Spirit
The mystery is that we are incapable of doing this without the indwelling Holy Spirit..God himself! This is not will Power – this is genuine, full fledged Power from the Most High God – the very One that raised Christ from the dead – that created all things and planned in advance how we would live to be more than conquerors in Christ!
The Holy Spirit and how He works is a Huge topic – but for now I really just wanted you to remember just where this power source comes from –
Receive Jesus = receive Power!! Are you thinking of joining me in becoming a POWER FREAK?
Maybe you are saying to yourself “Ya, I have the Holy Spirit living in me, so what?” So what? Maybe you have not allowed Him to work His power in your life – to change you, to transform you, to work out things in your life that you never thought possible…for His glory…
