A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: The Purpose Of Power [23/06/2017]

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. – Acts 1:8. Read: Matt 28:18-20

A wise man said, “When the purpose of a thing is unknown, abuse is inevitable”. When you know the purpose of something, you will gladly use it for it purpose. The purpose of power is not to usurp higher authority, power is not to oppress others or to lord it over others. In fact, divine power is for service to God and to His people. The purpose of power is to liberate men from oppression and depression and bondage the enemy has kept them. Power is to heal the sick, raise the dead back to life, open the blind eyes, restore withered hands, restore the backslidden to Christ etc. The purpose of divine Power is to comfort the brokenhearted and those that mourn in Zion and to give encouragement to the discouraged in the Lord. It’s also to bear one another’s burden.

According to Jesus in the above scripture in Acts 1:8, He said, the purpose of divine power of the Holy Spirit is to be His witness in your immediate family, in your communities, at your offices, in your nation and even to the world at large. He chose you and I to go and make disciples of all nations and until you engage in the Great Commission, you will no get the value of His power. Paul said, the preaching of the gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes. Rom 1:16. Do you know the purpose of His power in your life?


* Any gift of the Holy Spirit not engaged for it purpose will be lost to him that knows and engages his or hers.
