4 Ways to have Unlimited Power in the Holy Spirit

 

God has such great things in store for you.  He wants to give you all of His power through His spirit.  He wants to give you that power to do His great work.  Here are four ways to get that power: 

1.  Pray that Christ would be Lord in your Life.  When you pray for the Holy Spirit to fill you, pray also for the Lordship of Christ.  For unless Christ is Lord in your life, the Holy Spirit can do no work there.  He is not even welcome there.  So pray that God would help you to make Him Lord, that He would give you the humble submissive spirit of a son—a son that would welcome His Son as Lord, and His Spirit to take control.           

2.  Believe and obey God.  After you have prayed for the Holy Spirit to come in and fill you and for Christ to be Lord in your Life, believe in God that Christ is Lord and that the Holy Spirit has filled you and has given you His power.  Yes believe in the promise of John 1:12, that as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become the sons of God.  Believe also in Acts 1:8, that we will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us: that we would be His bold witnesses.            

But the way we believe God is to obey Him (for if we don’t obey Him we prove that we don’t really believe Him).  So we must act out our belief in God by obeying Him.  Then you show that you love Him and He will demonstrate His great power in and through you (Jn. 14:21).  Yes, it will be an unlimited power—a power to open your mouth and speak the gospel boldly, even in the midst of those who would mock and ridicule and persecute you.

3.  Pray for others to receive the Holy Spirit and His power.  Pray for God’s spirit to convict many hearts so that they will be prepared for His outpouring (Jn. 16:8-11).  Then Pray that He be poured out as living water on them (Ezek. 39:29).  When we serve and pray for others we learn the most and receive the most from Him.  Andrew Murray writes: “The Father gives the Holy Spirit most to those who ask that He be given to others.”

4.  Continue praying for the Holy Spirit.  Don’t give up on praying for the Holy Spirit.  Know that we must pray constantly for Him, for we need Him constantly.  Just as a fruit tree needs a constant flow of sap to make the fruit grow, we need a constant flow of the Holy Spirit in us to produce His fruit and His power.

Therefore, if you want unlimited power in your prayers and in your life, you must give yourself completely to God; and you must pray constantly and fervently toward the work and rule of the Holy Spirit in your life.  E. M. Bounds says it plainly: “The projecting power of praying is the measure of the Holy Spirit in us.”

    Its been exactly 8 months since my father passed away, i had a hard time dealing with grief until i finally stopped crying and submitted myself to The Lord Jesus Christ. And since then, never have great things ceased to happen; miracles. Life in Oneness is satisfactory as there is faith, hope and love for eternity. May we all be blessed by our Heavenly Father, until we meet again in the promised land.

  2. Stephen says:

    Thank you for your testimony. It is hard to go through trials, and also hard in our rebellion to submitt to God, but when we do His yoke is so easy. He gives us strength for each day and hope for the journey. I thank God you have found the Lord’s love and peace. And I pray He will continue to confort you in your fathers passing.
