“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to the power at work within us” Eph.3:20. NIV.
The power of God works within us. It is not something that works from outside to inside. Every believer is equipped with the power of God and that power comes from the Holy Spirit. The popular teaching is the “hero” figure concept. I will describe the “Hero” concept as a situation where a few individuals have “the great power” of God and others have to depend on them for everything. That is not the exact thing God planned for the believers. The gifts are diverse and distributed to several people and we are compliment each other. The “hero” concept creates weakness. I have no intention to judge anything or anybody, I only want to encourage you to understand and live out the life God planned for you.
What is the nature of the Spirit in us? 2 Tim.1:7 states ” For God has not given us the Spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (KJV.) The Holy Spirit when he comes upon any person manifests the power dimension of God’s life. He manifest the love life of Jesus Christ and gives us the ability to exercise our minds in a healthy and profitable way.
This may unsettle some people but it is right for you to know it. When you have the Holy Spirit in you, you don’t really need to struggle to make yourself “anything.” He works out the purpose of God in you as you submit your will to him. Just like a chicken cannot give birth to a goat, no matter how much you feed, it so also an unbeliever or a canal person cannot live the Spirit’s life no matter what anybody says or does; those who try get frustrated and then start to teach that the work of the Spirit is not for this age.
God has not give us the Spirit of fear. Don’t live in fear, no matter the challenge. Be strong and courageous. The Power in us is the power that overcomes all obstacles and established the authority of God in any place.
