TEXT: ACTS 4 :31

“After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.”

After the Pentecost what next? Should we fold our arms and wait for another Pentecost? Will the power that was given to us sustain us through the entire Christan walk?

The experience of the Pentecost is not meant to be a one-off thing but a daily walk with God. If you study the preceding verses of our anchor scripture, you will see the disciples still asking for more, still waiting for more and praying fervently for it. In other words, as people of God, we can’t go far without the continual presence of God with us. Those who are connected to the power from above always get their instructions and directions from God and do not rely on their own thinking.

In order to put an end to the molestation of the devil and satanic agenda in our lives we need the continuous presence of the power from above. Lamentation 3:37 asks, “Who is he that said, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commanded it not?”

Some years ago, a story was told of a rich man who was so diabolical that he had a personal native doctor which served as his ‘chief consultant’. But one day he had an encounter and ran to a church to surrender his life to Jesus Christ. His native doctor, knowing what had happened in the spirit, confronted him physically and threatened to kill him within three days if he failed to return to his shrine. So, because the man was afraid, he ran to a church for prayers, trusting that God will preserve him and his family. The man of God assured him that he was not going to die. He anointed him and declared, “By the vengeance mantle of God at work in my life, I decree that the same three days the native doctor gave you to die, he shall be the one to die”.

Brethren, on the exact third day, the native doctor died! That was the manifestation of Power that surpasses power. Still affirming that the Word of God is the end of any matter, case, statement or sentence.

The Power of God is above all other powers on the earth or any other place. This is revealed in the speech Jesus made to Pilate in John 19:11 that says, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above…” Furthermore, if the source of power of an individual is not from God, we call put whatever that person says in a ‘baseless container’, especially if it is meant to get one shiver with fear.

Beloved, the Power of God is superior to any power on earth, and nothing paralyzes satanic agenda like the power from above. All other powers can fail but the power of God cannot fail because the power from above is above all. Continue to walk in that realm now!!!

1. Do you see God as your source of power or your alternative power?

2. Do you desire to operate in the realm of the supernatural?

3. Determine never to slag back in your relationship with God from now forward.

Prayer points
1. Pray for that power from above now.

2. Pray against every satanic embargo now.
