THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD

Text: Isaiah 11:2

And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD

Do you really want any to make a lasting impact in life? Do you want to rise above life circumstances and control them? Do you want to fulfill your destiny, and be (not just what you want to be) but that unbelievable thing that the Lord has prepared for you? Then you need to have the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

The only way to live a fulfilled life and become who God has called you to be is to fulfil do the task that God has called into. But the task is beyond the ability of any ordinary human. We are sent to do the same work that God sent Jesus to do (John20:21). Or duty as the son of God is to destroy the work of the devil (1 John 3:8). The devil deals in sickness, sin, poverty and Death. His mission is to steal, kill and destroy. Men are helpless before him because he’s their lord. Only the Son of God can stop him. That’s exactly what Jesus was sent to do. Now Jesus said:

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father”. (John 14:12)

To fulfil the task, Jesus was anointed with the fullness of the Holy Spirit (John 4:18). Now that you are sent as Jesus was sent to do the works that Jesus did and even greater, you need to be filled with the same fullness of the Spirit as Jesus was.

When you get filled with the Spirit nothing can resist you. All mountains of opposition would crumble at your presence.

“Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.”

The fullness of the Spirit will convert your mouth to a divine arsenal of God. A word from you will send age-long sicknesses, poverty and demonic presence packing. That is how it worked for Jesus. The Bible says

When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick (Mat 8:16)

Be filled with the Holy Spirit.
