Resurrection Power in You.

Philippians 3:10

that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death

The Apostle Paul desires and longs to experience the power of the resurrection of Jesus. Not that he never experienced it but I believe He wanted to experience a greater degree and measure of this resurrection power.

Christianity without power is a joke! It’s ineffective!

The kingdom of God is not in speech or in big talk. It’s in power. Without power, as a believer you can’t do much for yourself or for others.

Notice what Apostle Paul says, I want to know the resurrection power. He didn’t say I want to have the resurrection power. You know why he didn’t say it, because He already has the resurrection power in Him – He got it the moment he got born again. Well, every believer is a container, a holder, a receptacle and a vessel of resurrection power.

II Corinthians 4:7

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

You have this treasure of resurrection power in you. You are so valuable. You are so precious. You are so powerful. This is how God sees you and its important for you to see yourself as the way God sees you.

This resurrection power is the power God used in raising Jesus Christ from the dead. There was tremendous opposition and resistance to the resurrection of Jesus. Satan, His demons, all His forces and all hell was against the resurrection. But in spite of all opposition, God exerted His great power and raised Jesus up from the dead defeating Satan, His demons, all His forces and all hell.

This mighty, surpassingly great and immeasurable resurrection power is in you right now. You can’t grasp or comprehend how exceedingly great this power is, with your human comprehension. It’s over and beyond the human mind and intellect.

This is why the Apostle Paul while praying for the believers at Ephesus asked the Holy Spirit to enlighten and illuminate them so they would know and experience this resurrection power. The only way you comprehend and experience the resurrection power is through the Holy Spirit for He, the Spirit of truth is the one who makes it a reality.

Ephesians 1:18‭-‬23

the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

Notice, the Apostle Paul doesn’t ask the Lord to give power to the believers rather He asks the Lord to give them insight and greater understanding of the resurrection power which is already in them. Make it your prayer. Don’t prayer for power. Rather pray for a greater understanding and insight of the power you already possess through the grace of Jesus Christ.

Resurrection Power is in me. I am a possessor, a receptacle, a container of the resurrection power of Christ. I have this treasure in me and therefore I am precious and powerful. I live a triumphant and a victorious life.

Not only are we to accept and acknowledge the reality of our possession of resurrection power, but we are to walk in this resurrection power. It’s one thing to have the resurrection power and it another thing to experience, walk and enjoy it.

1. The deeper your fellowship with Jesus, the greater the level of power you will walk in.

2. Being conscious of this resurrection power by constant confession.

3. Purity and power are inseparable.

4. Love is the channel through which this power flows.

Remember, God exerted His power and raised Christ from the dead and placed Him at His right hand far above all principalities and powers and placed all things under his feet. You see, there was a major shift.

  • From being dead to being alive forevermore.
  • From the lowest place to the highest place. From the bottom to the top.
  • From terrible bondage to absolute freedom.
  • From being inferior to being far superior.
  • From being oppressed to having total and complete authority over all oppressors.
  • From being defeated to being an overcomer – eternally victorious.

When this resurrection power begins to work in you and when you begin to walk in it, every demonic bondage, satanic yoke and burden will be destroyed and you will walk in freedom, in power, in superiority and in your eternal victory. You will arise to the top. You will stay at the top. There will be a resurrection of every area of your life that is dried up and dead. It shall be alive and well with the life and vitality of the Living One, Jesus. Hallelujah.

Nothing can hold you down. No power can keep you in bondage. No one can defeat you. No demon can stop you from going forward. No human can stop your progress. No institution can hinder you from fulfilling your God given destiny. You become invincible, indestructible and eternally victorious. You have resurrection power in You!

Not only will you enjoy this mighty resurrection power but you will distribute it to your world and set the captives free. You will be a blessing to many many people.

Shalom!
