A new year brings an opportunity for us to step into a greater dimension of God’s power than ever before. The Holy Spirit did not come into the world empty-handed and powerless. He came with all the power of Heaven at His disposal. And when God commissioned us to go into all the world and preach the Gospel, He didn’t call us to go empty-handed (Mark 16:15–18). He called us to go with His power and anointing!
We are living in the midst of a generation that doesn’t know the move of the Spirit and the operation of His power. God has sent us to the lost as beacons of the light of the Gospel. He has made us carriers of the Living Bread to those who are hungry. And He has made us vessels to take His power to the sick, the helpless, and the brokenhearted.
It’s time for us to stand up. It’s time for those of us who call ourselves faith people to demonstrate God’s power, not just a knowledge of His Word. I thank God for His Word. It’s a necessity. But the Word without the power won’t save the lost, heal the sick, or set the captive souls free!
Are we going to be satisfied with having just a little bit of God’s power? Or are we willing to step out of our comfort zone and carry the message of faith, deliverance, and salvation to a hurting, suffering world?
This is not the time for the Church to hold back and be complacent. This is not the hour for us to fold our hands or cower down. God wants us to take His power and go out boldly and defeat the power of the enemy. It’s time to rise up and touch our generation with the mighty power of God!
