This prophetic word for October 2023 and it is titled You need POWER. This is one of the shortest posts you will read on this site, so enjoy!!! LOL
Who is this word for? Those who are feeling overwhelmed.
Are you feeling overwhelmed of late? Almost like you are just not able to cope, understand, process or handle all that is happening around you? You need power.
This is going to happen even more so to those of you who can pick up on others easily spiritually. I wrote a prophetic word before titled Why am I feeling like this? If that word resonated with you, then this one will too.
When Jesus was getting ready to depart from the earth, He told the disciples to wait, not to do anything until they receive power before going out.
4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” 6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
I think, we think, of this power as only something that was needed to perform signs, wonders and miracles but it is more than that! They no longer had Christ walking with them in the flesh. They were on their own….selah!
They couldn’t run to Him anymore if they couldn’t cast out a demon, He was no longer there to multiply anything, to give clarity if they needed it, they were being hunted to be crucified and in the midst of that they still needed to reach people with the gospel without fear. They didn’t have Him to talk to anymore. Just imagine what that would feel like if it was you. He’s with you for 3 years and then He’s no longer there and you are expected to do what He did, and greater works. That is a bit much. And, the replacement (Holy Spirit), when He shows up, you can’t see HIM. Yikes! It was a huge adjustment.
That has to be overwhelming.
When you look at everything that is happening around you right now, do you feel overwhelmed? If you can pick up on the emotional and spiritual state of people around you. I’m sure you do! When it’s a constant, weird things happening in the news every day, no letting up, it’s one thing after the other, after the other, it’s a bit much after awhile.
You need power.
When you became a born-again believer in Christ, you received the Holy Spirit. What happens is that we need to be refilled. It’s not a one-time deal. I am convinced that there are moments in life when we need to ask for a refilling! We kinda leak over time.
2 Timothy 1:6-7
6 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
We usually quote verse 7, when we feel fear, but verse 6 says what we need is already within us and only needs to be stirred.
What is already in you? Power, love and a sound mind.
Fear is one thing, but feeling overwhelmed is another. Speaking from experience, and imagining that the disciples felt the exact same way when Jesus went into heaven, when you are feeling overwhelmed what you need is POWER. Ask for the Power.
Simple Prayer for Power:
First anoint, your hands and your forehead with oil. Hold your hands up.
Holy Spirit, I need Your Power, fill me with your Power, in Jesus name, Amen.
He’ll send a lightning bolt from heaven and hit you like someone just hit you with a defibrillator and you’ll be revived in a second! And for those who may still be struggling with the theology on this one, how about your try it first before you comment.
