You will receive POWER

Many believers are very eager to follow Jesus but they lack the power to stop sinning, to stand against the temptations of the devil, to go out and testify. The reason is that they need the Holy Spirit power of God to enable them to stand against the devil, to overcome.
Peter was a very brave disciple and He said to Jesus: “Lord I will go with You even through death!” Jesus said to him:”Peter, before the cock crows you will deny me three times,” which actually happened.
But after the resurrection Jesus commanded the disciples to go to Jerusalem and WAIT for the Holy Spirit because, He said: (Acts 1:8) “But you shall receive POWER when the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you shall be My witnesses…” After the Holy Spirit came on them Peter was a changed man. He stood up on the day of Pentecost and he started preaching. We read in Acts 2:38 “And Peter said to them, “Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39“For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God shall call to Himself.”
We need the POWER of the Holy Spirit but we need to go and WAIT on the Lord for that power. The disciples were waiting on the day of Pentecost. They were of one accord WAITING fro the Holy Spirit that God had promised. THEY WERE PERSISTANTLY AND EXPECTANTLY WAITING, and that is how we need to go and WAIT on the Lord, EXCPECTANTLY, asking Him, pleading Him:”Lord, give me the POWER of the Holy Spirit so that I can have the power to overcome.”
We read in Isaiah 40:30 “Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly,31Yet those who WAIT for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.”
We need to WAIT on the Lord in prayer, we need to spend time with the Lord, fast, pray, wait on the Lord. Ask Him for the power and WAIT until you receive the power of the Holy Spirit so that you can go out in His power. The disciples went out in the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT and God performed miracles through them. Jesus said:”These signs will follow for those who have believed…” But those were the ones who had waited on the Lord.
Go WAIT on the Lord and He will give you power from on high and you will be able to stand against the whiles of the devil. YOU WILL RECEIVE POWER if you wait on the Lord in prayer.
May Jesus bless you.
