Devotional Thoughts:

There is no greater power in the world than the power of the Holy Spirit! This power does not compare to any human army, to any force that exists in this world. When we have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us, there is a supernatural power at our disposal! There is no room for discouragement in our lives. On the contrary, we must be a living demonstration of God’s power, a testimony to those around us! Acts 1:8 gives us the promise of his power, “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.”

We cannot replace the power of the Holy Spirit with our own strategies and plans. Often we make the mistake of replacing the power of the Holy Spirit with our human effort. We must understand that there are things that never take place without the exclusive power of the Spirit! The world today needs to see believers empowered by the Holy Spirit in their lives. Men and women who remain with this power within them, being empowered by the Spirit, as Ephesians 3:16 tells us, “that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.”

On this day, how are you fighting your battles? With what power are you facing the challenges that life brings you? There is only one way that victory is guaranteed, by the power of the Holy Spirit! We can declare what Psalm 27:3 says, “Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.” There is no reason for running, or letting our hearts falter amid the situation that we face. God is with us, his Spirit will infuse us with the power to win. We must only clothe ourselves with the Holy Spirit and He will do the rest!

Foundational Scriptures:

Hosea 1:7 (NKJV) ─Yet I will have mercy on the house of Judah,Will save them by the Lord their God,And will not save them by bow, Nor by sword or battle, By horses or horsemen.”

Haggai 2:5 (NKJV) ─According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!’

Isaiah 11:2 (NKJV) ─The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

Micah 3:8 (NKJV) ─But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord, And of justice and might, To declare to Jacob his transgression And to Israel his sin.

Ephesians 3:16 (NKJV) ─16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
