Many of us often pray in error, asking God to give us MORE power while failing to operate in the FULL power of the Holy Spirit that is ALREADY within us. One can only be a true child of God if he or she is filled with the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9, New King James Version). Now the Holy Spirit is the Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, the Spirit that caused Christ to defeat every form of darkness, even death itself. If we have asked for and received the Holy Spirit, we have this exact same Spirit of UNDEFEATED POWER in us!
However, in order to see the power of the Holy Spirit manifest in our lives, we must actually WALK in the Spirit and be LED by the Spirit. You see, everything of the Spirit is GOOD. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22-23, NKJV). Walking in these good things we will automatically avoid bad or sinful things; and avoiding sin is nothing but POWER! Children of God: you are filled and sealed with the Holy Spirit; that means you already have the power to do any GOOD thing you want or need to do. You got the power, YOU GOT IT!
Romans 8:12 (NKJV)
“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”
