“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever!” (Ephesians 3:20–21, NLT)
The late Dr. Bill Bright once wrote, “The more we walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and allow Him to guide and control our lives, the more Christ’s character will shine in what we say and do.” That’s what I want for my life, for the Son to be shining in all that I say and do.
It is by daily walking in the power of the Holy Spirit that we live our new lives in Christ. We’ve talked a lot in this book so far about what it means to experience Son Power in our lives, but now it is time to discuss what we should actually be seeing in our lives when the Son is working in us and through us.
I frequently begin my day by asking our heavenly Father to direct my heart toward his grace and love. I want my heart to be prepared so that I am ready to have communion with the Holy Spirit. The Spirit knows the mind of God, and he is the deliverer of all that God desires for me to know about my life and living for him. He is the one who teaches me all things and also empowers me to do what God desires. It is vital that I keep my heart and mind open to him. He enlightens me, enables me, teaches me, and imparts his life to me.
To live righteously, we need supernatural power. This supernatural power comes to us through the Holy Spirit and it is through God’s Word that we learn about this power and what it can accomplish.
Faith is the key. Faith releases the Son Power of God. Faith and trust in self will fail for all of our true power is sourced in Jesus Christ. Paul said it well, “Our great power is from God, not from ourselves” (2 Corinthians 4:7, NLT).
Fortunately, God has already made this resource available to us. “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires” (2 Peter 1:3–4, NLT).
Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you the ways in which he is empowering you through the moments of your days. Ask him to fill you with supernatural power to live a life of purpose and passion. Read God’s Word and allow it to fill your mind and your heart so that Son Power might be a force in your life that makes a difference.
In what ways are you currently experiencing supernatural power in your life?
Son Power is released by faith.
