This post is for you if you’ve been baptised into Christ by the Holy Ghost (Had Salvation experience) and you’ve been baptised in the Holy Ghost by Christ Himself (Matthew 3:11,Mark 1:8,Luke 3:16 & John 1:33) with the evidence of speaking in tongues, and you don’t feel like you have power yet.
[NIV] Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
[NLT] Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
The scripture above boldy states that you have power even though you don’t feel like it yet, you are living, breathing, walking, powerhouse. You don’t just realise it yet.
From Physics (Mechanics/Electricity & Magnetism)
Energy, simply put, is the ability to do work (IVT)
Power is the rate of doing work (IVT/T)
Thus, power is the rate of energy transferred per time (IV)
NOTE: The Keywords here include; Power, Energy and Work (Feeling is not there)
Irrespective of how you feel (elated or sad), it will not stop you from having a shocking experience when you touch (by accident or intentional) an 11KVA live wire.
That being said, power if generated and not put to good use (work) will get dessipated right?
So HOW DO YOU (practically) GENERATE (that) POWER (in your daily living) AFTER YOU’D RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT?
Through fervent prayer backed by an understanding of God’s Word and also praying extensively in [other] tongues.
[AMP] James 5:16 The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
[KJV] Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
I would suggest that you start by praying non-stop (in other tongues only) for at least 30 minutes though 60 minutes would be a good (recommended) start then step it up from there.
Evidence suggest that anything you do consistently for 21 days becomes a habit (Google it 👍). Do this until it becomes a good habitual practice. I can assure you that you will learn and discover several other benefits in the process until you get to a peak where you’ll realise that you’re now uttering some prophetic declaration concerning issues of life, people or certain things.
I can bet you that those utterances are very prophetic and ladened with divine power to fulfillment…
Being a Witness of Jesus (Preparation of the Gospel of Peace)
As earlier stated, power is meant to accomplish something (effective work) and the work here is witnessing from your very own Jerusalem (Family), to your Judea (neighbourhood), Samaria (Workplace, etc.) and other spheres and walk of life…
The Gospel does not attract the power of God, the Gospel does not simulate the power of God, The GOSPEL IS THE POWER OF GOD (personified).
[KJV] Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
With all the power and spiritual manifestations you would have experienced from following step one above, you might not or would not feel any different from the previous you. I actually felt disappointed because I consciously or unconsciously assumed I’d appear/feel like one named Lord Raiden in Mortal Kombat or The Flash, Thor and similar characters of Marvel Comics (Don’t laugh please) But it does not work like it’s sketched in manga or shown in motion pictures.
So the litmus-test to convince your very seat of logic (head) and your heart (emotions) that you’re a power house is by witnessing. God is a very faithful God. He will always prove Himself to be God wherever His Word is preached. He will never let His Word fall to the ground.
[KJV] Mark 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
[NIV] Mark 16:20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
[NLT] Mark 16:20 And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs.
Your head (logic) will be flabberwhemled and overgasted with the divers miracles, signs and wonders that will follow whenever and wherever you stand to be a witness.
This is because God does not need your ability, He only needs your availability (empty vessels). He will not call for those that are qualified, He qualifies those He calls.
Remain blessed as you become an accredited agent and authorised dispenser of God’s tremendous power for every good works in your daily living.
