Walking in Divine Power

Matthew 10:1 – And when he had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

The Greek words for power include Exousia (authority, delegated power) and Dunamis (inherent power). From the above scriptures we see that Jesus gave the disciples power over the devils and their operations. The disciples took the power, used it and prevailed.

Today, we have a better covenant and better promises. We have the Holy Spirit dwelling inside us. The question now is why are we not seeing the manifestation of the power among us as they saw in biblical times? I will give some of the reasons below:-

Ignorance – Most Christians don’t know the full extent of their inheritance in Christ.

The foundation on which your expectation/trust is built determines your level of operation in God’s power.

Incorrect teaching on divine power and its manifestations.

Abuse of power: The power of God is not for show, fun, sale or selfish reasons.

Sin: Sin is a reducer and it weakens divine power in the life of Christians.

In order to walk in divine power you need:-

A well rounded teaching on who you are in Christ – Knowing who you are, puts you in charge.

Total trust in God.

Obedience check – Obedience to God qualifies you to be a commander.

The Christian journey is a marathon and not a sprint. It is a daily walk and not an occasional trip. Our promptness in taking heed of God’s direction on a daily basis puts and keeps us on the cutting edge of God’s power. We determine how much of God’s power we manifest by the level of our consistent readiness in our walk with Him.

God prompts us daily, to keep us on top of things. Set your mind to receive daily prompting and choose to carry out the instruction accordingly and you will experience a world of difference in your results.
