“The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him–the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD, and he will delight in the fear of the LORD” Isaiah 11:2-3
Jesus was lead by a divine spirit-the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit He was given divine and great power from God the Father. Jesus recieved the same spirit that we today have also recieved that once accepting into our lives are embodying the spirit that can raise people from the dead, can heal the sick, can cast out demons and can share salvation with the world.
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” 1 Timothy 1:7
“very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing and they will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:12-13
“if you love me, keep my commands and I will ask the FAther and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever, the Spirit of Truth. the world cannot accept him because it neither sees him nor knows him. but you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you” John 14:15-17
“the advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you” John 14:26
“We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.” 1 Corinthians 2:12
It is so amazing to me that we have the same divine Spirit that indwelt among the prophets in the Bible, the apostles, in those who wrote books in the bible such as Paul. That those who were preaching the Good News were being led by the same Spirit that we have within us. Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to be empowered through you? are you allowing Him room to do His work in and through you or are you limiting His power to your desires and the direction you are wanting to head in life? Do not underestimate the power you have through Jesus-for we can do all that those spoken of the Bible have done. As their callings were to bring great glory to the Lord-ours is too.
“For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15
We are no longer held captives to inseccurities, doubts, or fears that come from the world and our flesh. We have recieved a spirit of Sonship in which through maturity are able to inherit all of the Kingdom that God desires His sons too. May you begin to seek understanding of the Holy Spirit of His fullness and the power in which we can attain here on earth.
“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs-heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory” Romans 8:16-17
May you seek understanding, seek wisdom, seek to unleash the fullness of the Spirit within you and recieve the fullness of life Jesus came to give us here on earth.
““The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”’
