1 Corinthians 1:24 (NET)
But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.
When Memunat became a believer in Christ Jesus, what attracted her to Christ was the power of God she saw present in the life of her roommate in the university. She wanted to walk in that kind of authority and power. She saw that her roommate wasn’t afraid of what everyone feared. She saw her roommate walk in divine health and healing. Unlike her, her roommate was sure of her eternal destiny and wasn’t afraid of the future. She wanted that kind of power and certainty for the future. That was why she accepted the Lord Jesus.
After she was baptized in the Holy Spirit, she received power and authority. She was so excited because she was now endued with God’s power and she knew it. When someone was trying to persuade her against her faith in Christ, it was impossible because Jesus was the power of God to her. He was not just a philosophical or religious leader to her, she walked daily in His tangible power.
Today, many believers have shaky faith because they do not dwell in the power dimension of their relationship with the Lord. This power is constantly ministered to us by the Holy Spirit. He empowers anyone He comes upon (see Acts 1:8), and this is all because of our relationship with the Lord Jesus (John 16:13-14).
Go into today remembering that Christ is the power and wisdom of God to us who believe. Believers who are filled with the Spirit and with Joy are powerful believers. Do not let the devil steal your joy because your power operates better in the atmosphere of joy.
Prayer: Lord, please fill me with the Holy Ghost once again.
