“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” Acts 1:8, NKJV.
You are not only forgiven and made free. You are anointed, Spirit-filled, endowed with the power of God to be used in an uncommon way. Power in the Greek here is “dunamis”, which means miraculous power, force, an abundance of ability from God Himself. The Holy Spirit is upon you. Not just anyone’s spirit, but God’s Spirit. The same Spirit that rested upon Jesus now rests on your life. He is in you for character, yet He has now come upon you for mighty service.
You are great and one of the best things you can do in your Christian walk is to not forget how awesome you now are in Christ. You are who God says you are, and you can do what God says you can do. There is no one or nothing that can stop you from doing the work God has placed in your heart to do. You have no barrier or blockades from the wicked one that can restrain the divine power you have.
You are not an ordinary man. God wants you to step into your awesomeness. Step into your greatness. The world needs to see you son of God yield to His Spirit and let Him use you. Allow the word of God to remind you today you have been changed into the likeness of Christ and you can change the world.
Prayer: Father, thank You for stepping into greatness. The Holy Spirit is upon me and I am anointed to be like Jesus. I declare Luke 4:18 over my life: that the Spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed. I thank You for making me great in Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
