SCRIPTURE: How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Acts 10:38
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anyone who carries the Presence of God carries power.
We live in a terrible world where there is the abundance of wickedness. To live without the power of God in this world is to end as a victim in the hands of the wicked. In our study today, we shall look at six objectives of God’s power. Why do we need God’s power?
- The defeat of enemy resistance.
The Master, Jesus Christ, had remained on the same spot for a long time until the power of God came upon Him, and the enemy resistance was defeated (Acts 10:38).
- The release of motion.
Our anchor scripture said that He went about (Acts 10:38). Resistance defeated, then motion released.
- The initiation of action.
Where something is not working, they are made to work when the power of God is available.
- The enforcement of the goodness of God.
Acts 10:38 says that Jesus went about doing good. When the power of God is in manifestation, the goodness of God is enforced.
- The activation of potentials.
The assignment of the power of God is the activation of potential. Jesus carried the healing power that was not obvious until power was released (Acts 10:38).
- The arrest of enemy wickedness.
Jesus was healing all that were oppressed of the devil (Acts 10:38).
Now, what is the major secret of power?
a. The Presence of God.
Anyone who carries the Presence of God carries power. Jesus did all He did because God was with Him (Acts 10:38).
b. The passion to do the Will of God.
Beloved, if you carry His presence and you are passionate about His Will, then you are set to see His Power.
REMEMBER THIS: Anyone who carries the Presence of God carries power.
- Maintain an unbroken fellowship with God.
- Avoid a lifestyle of sin.
- Make demands on God’s power today.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive more of Your power in my life. Let Your power break every enemy resistance. Activate my motion in life; unleash the potentials in me, and arrest every trace of the wickedness of hell around my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: Israel is the only country in the world that has the same name, is located in the same land and speaks the same language as it did 3,000 years ago. Most of the Jews were forced by the Romans into the Diaspora (exile) after the destruction of King Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem in 70 C.E. But the Jewish people did not all leave.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive a fresh baptism of the power of God now, in Jesus’ Name.
