This week’s topic: The Power Of The Spirit
One of my favorite movies is “Hancock”, a superhero flick starring Will Smith. While watching it, something on the spiritual side came to me. That’s how God is; He will show you something through anything! Tears came to my eyes because of what was revealed to me.
With the power that was inside of Hancock, he could stop a fast moving train from crashing into a man, send cars flying into the air, stop robberies and crimes, stop a child from bullying another, and other prisoners from “taking him out”. While watching all of this fake Hollywood made power, what came to me was that as children of God having received the Holy Spirit; we have power but ours is real. “But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8). This power is also to be used over the enemy, we can make it through anything, and we don’t have to give in or up when something comes our way because it will not hurt us. “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19).
Another thing was how Hancock got back up after being attacked, and kept on going. As believers with power, we can do the same! We don’t have to walk around in defeat with our heads hung down and when knocked down, we don’t have to stay on the ground. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going. (2 Corinthians 4:8-9). We are not “superheroes”, but “super conquerors”. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:37). So let’s walk in it, talk in it, and use it . . . Got Power!
Scripture of the Day: “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” – Romans 8:37
