Romans 8:11, 1Samuel 10:6 ‘But if the Spirit of him that raised up
Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead
shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in
you. *And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt
prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.’
The word ‘quicken’ in our first text above means to give life. The Holy Spirit does not merely quicken our physical a bodies; He quickens every area of our lives. He causes us
to experience God’s supernatural life and power. In our second text above, Prophet Samuel prophesied that Saul would be the king of Israel, that the Spirit of the Lord would come upon him, that he would prophesy and that he would be turned into another man. The Holy Spirit will similarly empower you to be the king and priest that God has ordained
you to be. He will empower you to manifest the grace for dominion that you have received in Christ.
Do you know that one major assignment of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Christ in us, John 16:13-15? To glorify Christ in us means to manifest the glory and power of Christ in our lives. When Peter was asked about the healing of the lame man by the Beautiful Gate, he confirmed that God simply glorified His Son Jesus, Acts 3:12-13. Christ is glorified when His power and nature is seen. This is one major thing the Holy Spirit does in our lives.
The same way the Holy Spirit miraculously raised Jesus from the dead, He will also manifest resurrection power in our lives; bringing us out of impossible situations and restoring life to whatever may seem dead in and around us. He is the God who speaks life to dead things. As the Holy Spirit empowered Jesus to function supernaturally on this earth, He is also empowering us to experience God’s supernatural power because we are the Body of Christ. Rest in the assurance that the Spirit of God in you is not in any way inferior to the Spirit of God that is in Christ.
Prayer Focus: Ask God to glorify Christ in your life today by
manifesting the resurrection power of His Spirit in you.
Grace for Dominion…
