In My Name, You Will...
Wait a minute, you may be thinking, I’ve been saved for 20 years and Jesus has been in me the whole time. But He has never preached any sermons or healed any sick people through me.
That’s because you haven’t expected Him to do those things. You see, even though the Anointed One is in you, He is not going to be revealed through you unless you use your faith. That shouldn’t surprise you. After all, everything we receive from God—even the new birth—must be activated in our lives by faith.
Thus, if you want the Anointed One Who lives in you to begin to be manifested through you, you’ll have to believe God for it. You can’t just sit back and wait to see what happens. You must lay hold of the promise of God and believe what the Word says, rather than what your circumstances or experiences say.
You may feel as though you have no power or anointing at all. But the Word of God says, “After…ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13). To be sealed means “to be stamped with an image.” That means, when you were born again, you were stamped with the likeness of the Anointed One. You were made to look like the Lord Jesus Christ on the inside.
What you need to do now is believe that, and let what God put on the inside of you come out! Seek to yield to the Anointed One within you every day. Let Him have His way. Expect the divine Life already in you to begin to flow, so others can see the Lord Jesus Christ through you!
Put your faith into action by spending time with Him. Set your affections on those things that are above. Desire Him to reveal Himself through you so much that you’re willing to set aside other things and seek Him first.
I firmly believe that the more important Jesus becomes to us, the more He will reveal Himself through us. So make up your mind to hunger for Him and to give Him His way in you every day. As you do, He’ll begin to bless people through you.
Speak the Word
Jesus lives in me. He is my Hope of Glory. (Colossians 1:27)
