For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him (John 3:34).
From the words of Jesus in Acts 1:8, we discover the
source of true power and how we can receive that
power into our lives: it’s by receiving the Holy Spirit: “But ye
shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon
you….” The Holy Spirit is the embodiment of all power. So, if
He lives in you, you don’t need to ask God for more power or
for more anointing. The Holy Spirit didn’t come in a measure
to give you a part of Himself, contrary to the understanding
that some people have.
In the Old Testament, He only had to come upon
God’s prophets, such as Moses, Samson, Samuel, David,
Isaiah, etc., and the priests, judges, and kings of old. But the
Bible says of Jesus, “For he whom God hath sent speaketh the
words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto
him” (John 3:34). The Lord Jesus had the Holy Spirit in Him
The same Jesus, in John 20:21, said, “…as my Father
hath sent me, even so send I you.” If Jesus required the full
measure of the Spirit to do the work the Father sent Him, and
He has sent us as the Father sent Him, why then would we be
sent with a measure and not the fullness of the Spirit? God’s
purpose for us in Ephesians 3:19 is that we be “…filled with all
the fulness of God.”
The Holy Spirit came into you, to make His abode in
you. He lives in you in all His glory, majesty, might, wisdom
and strength. He’s everything you need to live transcendently
and be a success for Jesus Christ.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you
for the Holy Spirit has come to
live and make His abode in me.
I take advantage of His glorious
presence in my life, and declare
that I’m more than a man. I live
out the supernatural life naturally,
demonstrating the glory, wisdom
and excellence of divinity. I’m
joined to the Lord, and have
become inseparable with Him,
bearing fruits of His righteousness
that’s inherent in my spirit, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
