Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
The difference between Christianity and other religion is Power. The difference between the word of God and motivational speaking is power. Our God is a living God and Jesus Christ is alive, when He arose from the dead, He sent us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the custodian of Power and Anointing. The Holy Spirit is not power, He is the source of power, He is not the anointing, He carries the anointing. The Spirit of God is the source of all powers. Jesus Christ did a lot of mighty works in His earthly ministry because He was empowered by the Holy Spirit, Acts 10:38. The good news is this, if you are born again, that same Holy Spirit is in you, that means the source of power is in your inside. Today we shall be engaging in prayers for power and anointing. But before we go into the prayers proper, let us see what power and anointing is.
What Is Power And Anointing?
Power is the capacity of God at work in a man and through a man. Anointing is the enduement of that power.When you are endued with the power of God, it means that you now carry the power of God inside your spirit. Every born again child of God have been endued with power. Every child of God is anointed with the power of God.As a Christian, you have the power of God on your inside and you can manifest it on the outside. However, having the power of God inside you and manifesting that same power outside you are not the same thing. It takes spiritual understanding to know what to do to manifest the power of God inside of you. A lot of christians today are victims in life because they know not what to do to manifest power in there lives. The question now is this, how do i manifest the power of God on my inside?
How To Manifest The Power Of God In You.
The most effective way to manifest power as a believer is through Prayer and Fasting. This is without prejudice to the studying of the word of God. The word of God keeps you spiritually informed at all times, but prayers and fastings keeps you spiritually alert and sensitive, it also activates the power of God in you to make things happen in your life. There is no short cut to power, Those believers that will see power in their lives are those believers that will be given to continuous fastings and prayers.
It is important to note that, prayers and fastings do not give you power, you recieved power when you believed, but prayers and fasting enables you to activate the already existing power of God inside you. Also prayer and fasting should not be seen as a price we pay for power, no, Power was given to us by grace through our faith in Christ Jesus, rather prayer and fastings is we creating an enabling environment to connect to the power of God on our inside. Its just like having a generator filled with fuel in your house, that is power, but until you put on the generator, there will be no light or power in your life. When we pray and fast, we are putting on that generator and we are powering every area of our lives. Prayer and fasting makes our spiritman sensitive at all times to pick spiritual signals from heaven. Jesus when preparing for His earthly ministry, fasted for 40 days, Matthew 4:2. This is to let us know how important fasting and praying is. While we may not fast 40 days like Jesus Christ, we must live a fasted life and a prayerful life in order to be on fire for Jesus.
If we want to see things change in our lives, if we want to see our mountains move at our command, if we want to constantly command signs and wonders, then we must be given to regular prayers and fastings, this is a major way to be in constant command of power and the anointing. These prayers for power and anointing will guide you as you undertake your journey to the manifestation of power and anointing. As you engage them in faith today, your life will never remain the same in Jesus name.
