“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,” Luke 4:18
The Disciples walked with Jesus. They had seen Him do great things—heal the sick, cast out demons, turn water into wine. They knew that He operated with great power. As the time for Jesus to leave the earth drew near, He began to tell them of what was to come.
We could only imagine how they felt.
Not only were they about to lose their Master, but they may have thought that they might just lose the power that their Master demonstrated—the power to make broken people whole, rejected people accepted, and sick people well.
But, here’s what Jesus said to them, “It is for your advantage that I go away, for if I do not… the Helper will not come.” Jesus did not plan to leave them comfortless, helpless, or powerless! He would send His Spirit to dwell in His disciples, empowering them to live as He had, and to do what He did on the earth!
You have the Power of the Holy Ghost living inside of you! You know what that means, you have the Power to do all things surging through your spirit.
This is the answer you have been looking for. You don’t have to live defeated. You don’t have to live depressed, oppressed and repressed!. The same Spirit that was on Christ, is in all who believe in His name.
Do you believe? Yes? Then you have Power—His Power! And He wants to demonstrate it in and through you today. Will you let Him? Will you yield to Him and let Him lead you?
My friend, I pray that you will. Your life can only get better!
