Is Your Power Switch turned On?

Acts 1:8 But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.

Ephesians 3:7 Of this [Gospel] I was made a minister according to the gift of God's free grace (undeserved favor) which was bestowed on me by the exercise (the working in all its effectiveness) of His power.

Reflection: When you hear the word power what word comes to mind? What is power to you? Is it your job, money, status, people’s approval, position or control? You know recently I looked down at my kindle & saw these words; slide & Release the Power Switch to Wake! It was like something quickened in my spirit when I read that. It spoke to me about the power that God wants to release to his church. However just like on my kindle, to release the power you must release the power switch! In other words you must turn it on!

To release the power switch on my kindle I must follow the instructions. So my question is how do you release the power of God in your life? First you must understand how the power comes and what the His power is to be used for. The power comes when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. What is the power for? The bible says that the power is for being a witness for Him. So let me ask you a question are you using His power to be a witness? Are you allowing His power to dwell inside of you through the Holy Spirit? Are you stirring yourself up in Holy Ghost in His power & His might?

When God trust us with His power, he is trusting us to use his power for His purpose. The power will only work when we use it for the proper purpose. When the church is lacking in power, its not because they don’t have it, its because they have tried to use His power for their own benefit. His power is not to give us a great name, position or to draw a large crowd. God can give us favor with others, but his power is not to be misused or abused! Wonderful things can happen when we use God’s power to glorify Him. God will use his power to give you a voice to speak to others. God will use his power to flow through your hands to heal others. God will use his power so that you can touch & change others’ lives for eternity! Isn't it time for the church to use God's power & be a witness for Him?
