Being Endued with Power

Power from high comes only as the Spirit of God comes upon us. He comes to put a distinguishing mark that sets us apart for the work God has ordained for us to do. Isaiah 42:1; Col. 1:18,19. Opportunities come when everything seems hopeless. The impossibility the Israelites faced at the Red Sea with the Egyptians behind them was an opportunity used by God to secure their lasting deliverance from oppression. Our weaknesses and inadequacies are means by which the strength and omnipotence of God becomes manifest through us. If we continue to move forward, we will have lasting victory and deliverance. John 3:34.
The presence of Jesus Christ and His personality is made known to us by the Holy Spirit, not by our minds. It is not something we can fathom by our wisdom, but is revealed to us by the Spirit of God. John 1:31-34. Jesus was led of the Spirit into the wilderness. He was not driven by His thoughts and desires. Mark 1:13. The people of old experienced it. 1 Kings 18:12; 2 Kings 2:16.
How To Be Endued With Power:
1. Receive it and not turn away. John 1:12; Jer. 3:19.
2. Be led of the Holy Spirit at every instance of your life. Rom. 8;14. Come out from the works of wickedness. 2 Cor. 6:17-18.
3. We are by faith the children of God. Gal. 3:26; 4:6.
4. Refuse to be corrupted by this world through lust. 2 Pet. 1:4; 1 Jn. 3:1.
