How To Activate The Power Of The Spirit

...[Jesus'] mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it (John 2:5).

Oftentimes, people have no doubts as to the efficacy of the power of God's Spirit; but they're at sea as to how to activate that power and take advantage of it in their personal lives. To activate the power of the Spirit is very simple. The first thing is to recognize that you have the Holy Spirit within you, who's the source of God's power (Acts 1:8). He's the one who imparts you with the divine enablement to accomplish the extraordinary. Hence, you must recognize his divine presence within you.

Secondly, you must learn to do whatever the Holy Spirit tells you to do. Typically, He speaks to you through the Word. He also ministers specific words directly to your spirit. But, no matter how He chooses to communicate with you, act on His Word. That's the secret. When you do what He tells you to do, He'll confirm it with His power, and that surely will produce divine results.

Recall when the Lord Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding ceremony in Cana of Galilee. Before the miracle, Mary, the mother of Jesus had given the servants a wise counsel; to do whatsoever the Lord Jesus instructed them to do (John 2:5). The Master then instructed the servants to fill the water pots with water. When they had done so, He told them to draw from the pots and serve the master of ceremony. When the man tasted the drink, he asked the celebrant why he had kept the best wine until the end. A miracle had happened! When exactly did the water turn into wine?  It happened when the servants acted on the words of Jesus (John 2:1-10).

As you study the ministry of the Lord Jesus, you'd find there was always a miracle whenever anyone acted on His Word. Therefore, a key to activating the power of God's Spirit in your circumstances is acting on the Word. When you decide to take steps in the light of His written or spoken Word, His divine power comes upon you and enables you to lay hold on the results you desire.

Dear Father, I thank you for your Word and it's ability to renew my mind and transform me from glory to glory. I lay hold on my miracle today, and take charge of circumstances as I activate the power of the Spirit by acting on the Word.
