The primary help the holy spirit gives, is to give power. Acts:1.8 says, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses…”

To understand power, let’s relate it to electricity. Untill you have acess to electricity, you can’t utilize it; so our lights can be switched on only if there is power(electricity) flowing through it. All electric gadgets will need the power from electricity to be able to work or function. It is the same with the power of the holy spirit. The power the holy spirit gives, gives us the life and energy to live and have fellowship with him.

The power the holy spirit gives, can be seen and manifested in different folds;

  • It gives us the authority to be sons of God and heirs with christ( John 1:12). It’s like a judge’s rule that legalize adoption process. So we have the right to call ourselves children of God and enjoy the privileges that comes with it; the authority to demolish strongholds, bind and lose things in the spirit realm.
  • It gives us the ability to do what God has purposed for us to do. In Luke1.35 ,”The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you”… The power of the holy spirit gives us the ability to walk in purpose and do the things that seems impossible to do. He is our help!
  • The power is also an energy the holy spirit exerts on us to strengthen our spirit man. Apostle Paul said, ‘ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’. This is also the power of the holy spirit at work.
  • The power also makes you fearless and bold. You are able to face your fears and conquer them because of the power the holy spirit gives. For we have not been given the spirit of fear but that of power…( 2 Timothy 1:7)
  • The power of the holy spirit also manifests as gifts. The gifts of prophecy, wisdom , discernment…( 1 Corinthians 12:8-10). All these gifts are powered by the holy spirit.
