Yahweh, you’re the bedrock beneath my feet, my faith-fortress, my wonderful deliverer, my God, my rock of rescue where none can reach me. You’re the shield around me, the mighty power that saves me, and my high place. Psalm 18:2 TPT
Years ago, we had a light fixture that needed changing and I asked Walt if he would change it out. He said, “I don’t do electricity.” When I asked why, he said, “Because I don’t know anything about it.”
That’s how we are with the Spirit in us; we don’t understand Him so we don’t use Him. But the Lord is calling us to flip the switch and allow the Spirit to be alive in us, heal our bodies, our minds, our lack. We don’t seem to understand that the one who is in us heals us. The one who is in us delivers us and provides for us.
The first time I went to my daughter Stacy’s church, they had a guest pastor and he spoke about how he used to work for the power company. He explained that transformers are to transform the power from the energy company to usable power for the consumer. If there were no transformers, the raw energy would blow up all of our homes and appliances.
That’s what the Holy Spirit does. He transforms the massive raw power of God into usable power in us. Power to heal the sick, raise the dead, transform lives, set people free. We have all this power in us and we leave the switch off. It’s time to flip the switch. That’s what the next move of God is going to be. People accessing the power of God in them to transform lives. He’s giving us revelation of Who we have living inside of us.
It takes surrender. It takes faith. It takes a whole lot of love because that’s who God is; LOVE. But once we tap into Him, our lives will yield the power He intended us to have. We are indeed carriers of the oil of the Holy Spirit. That’s how ‘nothing will by any means harm us’ comes into play. When sickness tries to come on our body, we need to tap into the Spirit and say, “Do your work in me.” Take communion and thank him for the blood shed and the body broken so that we could enjoy complete health.
Father, I plead the blood of Jesus over my body. No more sickness. Nothing missing or broken. I will not focus on what I lack, I will focus on what I have inside of me. I will pray in the Spirit and with my understanding, without ceasing, everyday. I will be aware of the power you’ve placed in me and become familiar with Him, having a deep understanding of Him and learn to access His power. When you said that we have everything we need for life and godliness, you were talking about your Spirit in us. Help me not to be afraid, but to understand and be full of love. In Jesus’ name. Amen
Flipping the Switch,
