And behold, I send the promise of my Father: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high (Luke 24:49).
Before His crucifixion, the Lord Jesus promised the disciples and others who would believe in Him that not only would they do the works He did, they would do even greater works (John 14:12). Jesus made this promise because on His request, the Father was sending the Holy Spirit to reside in us – to enable and empower us for the miraculous: “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever” (John 14:16 AMP).
Through the power of the Holy Spirit living in you, there’s absolutely no height of success or victory you can’t achieve. 2 Corinthians 4:7 says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” You have inside you the supernatural elixir for victory; you can do all things through the Holy Spirit that lives within you. He’s the One who brings into your life the enablement to blaze new trails and cause new things to happen.
From the Master’s emphasis in our opening scripture, He knew we wouldn’t be able to fulfill the divine call without the divine enablement that the Holy Spirit brings. But blessed be God; we’ve been imbued with power from on high for the miraculous: “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” (Acts 1:8). The Holy Spirit has enabled you to produce proofs of Christ’s resurrection and the reality of God’s Kingdom. He’s all you need to live supernaturally in this life.
Remember, the Holy Spirit in the life of Jesus made Him “the Christ” and enabled Him to do the mighty works He did. That same Spirit lives in you today; He has anointed you, and made it possible for you to do the impossible. Never again say you’re helpless or ordinary, for the “enabler” – Holy Spirit – has taken up residence in you, making you more than a man.
