The Power of the Holy Spirit

James MacDonald states it this way in his book, Downpour, “The Holy Spirit want to be continually filling you, empowering you with all the intensity and life and joy that is His to Give. It’s like putting your hand under a stream of water rushing out of a faucet. We have to be willing to reach out and surrender our hands to the water.”

There is a story of a group of preachers that were looking to hold a preaching revival and they wanted to get the great revival preacher, D.L. Moody to come. One of the younger preachers stood up and said, “Why do we need to get Moody? Does Moody have a monopoly on the Holy Spirit?” One of the other preachers, stood up and said, “I’ve seen and heard and even shared a meal with D.L. Moody. It is not that D.L. Moody has a monopoly on the Holy Spirit, but the Holy Spirit has a monopoly on D.L. Moody.”

My friends, by surrendering our will to God is how we lean over talk with Jesus. In our surrender we share in the comfort, the promise, the assistance and the power of the Holy Spirit. You and I must surrender to the Holy Spirit and allow the Holy Spirit to have a monopoly on our lives. It is through that release we will truly live.

Releasing to His Power,
