PRAISE AND WORSHIP


MESSAGE:

The Bible says that the Kingdom of God is in power. I encourage you to learn the requirements that God wants you to meet for His power to be poured upon you. I also advise you to pay the price and become a carrier of His power, presence and glory. Let us examine some of the spiritual requirements for obtaining God's power.


To acquire spiritual power, you must be born again, become a genuine disciple of Jesus as well as thirst and hunger for the power of God. You must also be a prayer addict, a lover and doer of God's word, a lover of purity and holiness and one who submits to spiritual authority. These are the basic requirements. However, beyond salvation and these other factors, there are greater and deeper demands you need to meet to obtain spiritual power. Let us examine some of them.


First, for you to receive the power of God, you must give your heart to Him. In Proverbs 23:26, the Bible says, "My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways." The heart is the seat of life and strength. Spirituality begins in the heart, which both God and the devil are interested in. In the Bible, all emotions are experienced by the heart: love and hate (Psalm 105:25; 1 Peter 1:22); joy and sorrow (Ecclesiastes 2:10; John 16:6); peace and bitterness (Ezekiel 27:31; Colossians 3:15); courage and fear (Genesis 42:28; Amos 2:16). Finally, the heart means your true character or personality.


The expression "give me your heart" means receive my counsel with your whole heart. It also means that you should give God yourself and your life. Your heart represents your personality, value and everything you stand for. That is why the greatest thing you can give God is your heart, and God says you should give Him your heart if you want Him to fill you with spiritual power. Somebody said that salvation is receiving the life of God, the product of Christ's substitutionary work. It is not the same as giving your heart to God. Therefore, you both need to be saved and to give your heart to God.


Beloved, trust God with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding and acknowledge Him in all your ways (Proverbs 3:5-6). His power will fill and envelop you. I pray that God will entrust His power to you, in the name of Jesus.

When you pay the price of power, you get its coveted prize.
