How do we unlock extraordinary prophecy and promise?
Unlocking the power on "high" from within must first come from surrendering to God. The cross of Jesus deals with our past.
The infilling of the Holy Spirit is vital in us to release hope to those who hear our testimony.
When we surrender to Jesus and ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit, His power is given to us.
Isaiah 28:11-12a says, "For with stammering lips and foreign tongue, He will speak to this people, He who said to them, 'This is the rest. Give rest to the weary,' and 'This is repose."
At the center of this, God's given promise is the dynamic of the Holy Spirit.
The last thing Jesus spoke of on earth was of the Holy Spirit's vital essence coming upon the disciples. To accomplish God's calling and mission before them, the disciples needed the promise of the Father.
Acts 1:8 says, But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
The disciples, and you, are called to:
—Be the salt and the light.
—Be nation shakers and city takers.
—Represent the kingdom of God and be world changers.
In a world of expert witnesses for hire, He is raising true eyewitnesses. We will see witnesses who have experienced the grace of salvation by the blood of the Lamb and have been baptized in the Holy Spirit and with fire.
Today, open your mouth with praise that God is your Father, rejoice because your name is written in the Lamb's book of life!
All children are taught a language from their parents to empower them. God is our Father, and He provides His children Spirit-empowered languages as a sign and prayer. Language is the foundation of intelligence, communication and power!
Speak His Truth
You are an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb. The word of your testimony shares life and love. You belong to Him!
His power is from on high. He is the Most High! He is above all!
He is the center of all!
When you're empty, meet Him as your all in all!
Don't be afraid to be broken before the Lord. Allow the gift of God your Father "with stammering lips and foreign tongue" to come out of your innermost being.
Find time out of your busy day. Take 30 seconds to 2 minutes to let in the Holy Spirit and let Him minister to you.
You're beautiful; I see Jesus in you.
