But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you… – Acts 1:8
As a new creation in Christ Jesus, you’ve been endued with tremendous power to turn any situation around in your favour. You were imbued with power the moment you received the Holy Spirit into your life: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…” (Acts 1:8) That power is the dynamic ability to cause changes.
You’re not ordinary. You’re not supposed to be a victim of the adverse circumstances and situations of life, for you’re anointed. With the anointing of the Holy Spirit in you, you can change anything that’s not consistent with the will, purpose and plan of God for you. You can effect changes in your office, home, family or in your physical body. You can even influence and effect changes in the government of the nation where you live.
2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” This refers to the Spirit of power, excellence and super-intelligence. That means there’s not enough trouble in the world to confuse or overwhelm you. The Holy Spirit has brought an anointing into your life, and by that anointing, you’ll know how to grow your business, run your family, your finances, and keep your body in health. That anointing causes you to be effective in the ministry of reconciliation: “…our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life” (2 Corinthians 3:5-6).
What you need is to stir up the gift of God, which is in you (2 Timothy 1:6). Micah 3:8 says, “But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD….” Stir up that power from within you today by speaking in tongues. The Bible says the one who speaks in tongues edifies himself (1 Corinthians 14:4). The power you have received is the dynamic ability to cause changes; turn that power loose as you speak in tongues and release words of faith.

I rejoice, knowing that the greater One lives in me, and has anointed me with the supernatural ability to live triumphantly and win every day in life. I can change any negative situation. That inherent power in me is activated even now, in Jesus’ Name.
