In Mark chapter 4:35-38, Jesus has been teaching awhile and announced they were going to the other side. They all got in boats and headed over and Jesus fell asleep in the stern of the boat. Suddenly a storm arose and the large waves began crashing over the sides, threatening to sink the boat. Finally the disciples went and woke Jesus (the fixer), and cried out, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
Vs 39-40; Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”
All of the sudden the thought came to me, why do we always cry out to Jesus when He’s given us power through our words to do what He did? From Romans 8:11 we read; If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also, through his Spirit that dwells in you.
Do you not see that? The Spirit that dwells in you, the Holy Spirit, He gives you power. You can operate in the earth just as Jesus did. I’m not being sacrilegious! I’m just repeating what the Word says. Don’t you think you’ve lived as a powerless Christian long enough? The Holy Spirit is just waiting on YOU to say the Word, He will back it up! Just as Jesus spoke to the fig tree and walked away, fully knowing that what He said would come to pass, YOU need to follow suit.
What do you need? Have faith in Gods Spirit that lives in you. You have access to everything you need, tap into the power and use it for His glory. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that without faith, we can’t please God, but He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. We want the good stuff, but don’t spend the time to have relationship with our Benefactor.
Father, I don’t want to live my life with no results when Your powerful Spirit was sent to live in me and lead me into all truth. I want to be an instrument of healing and provision. I want to see the dead come to life, the blind see, diseases leave. Be powerful in me today! Give me opportunities to do good and to trust You more. Thank You for giving me access to all the gifts provided. I will trust in You and Your Words I speak. Now unto You who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Amen.
