How to Overcome Any Challenge You Face
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
The resultant effect of the Holy Spirit coming upon you is the receipt of power. You need to understand that you have the power of God in you. It’s in you, and ready to be used by you to take the name of Jesus to the ends of the earth. You are not powerless. Jesus did not leave us without strength. Our strength is in the Holy Spirit. Whenever you encounter challenges, stop begging for a way out, that belittles the power of God you have inside of you…challenges you encounter that tend to hinder the ministration of the gospel should be adequately handled using the power you possess.
You need to take a hold of it, the power is in you, and it’s upon you. You have received it through your union with the Holy Spirit. Many believers don’t accept it, they still believe they are powerless so whenever they try to share the gospel, they get scared when confronted with an issue that’s beyond their control, or that demands the power of God be used…but the power is already within you; you need to learn to consciously and unashamedly use that power. Use your words, speak with authority, lay hands and take action, and well, if things don’t work out as planned, trust God to the point where you say “it didn’t work this times, it’ll work next time”, and then try again.
But always remember people, after the Holy Spirit came on you, you received power to become a witness; share this gospel with confidence as the powerful person that you are.
