POWER ON THE INSIDE.
In Ephesians 1:19-21, Paul prayed that we would get a revelation of….
What is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to [to the proportion of or to the degree of] the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.”
He was praying that God would show us the exceeding greatness of His power that is already on the inside of us. It’s the same power that He used when He raised Jesus from the dead.
Again, Ephesians 1:3 reveals that God “hath” already blessed us with these things. Paul wasn’t praying that the Lord will give us this power, that He’ll release more power, or that we’ll get a double portion of the Holy Spirit. He was praying that we would receive a revelation of what God has already put on the inside of us.
The power that is on the inside of every born-again believer is the exact same power God used when He raised Jesus from the dead. Satan mustered every ounce of strength he had to oppose the resurrection. He put all of his power, every one of his demonic forces, right in front of that tomb trying to block Jesus from coming out. Yet the power that raised Christ from the dead was much greater than all the force of the enemy. And now, as a born-again believer, you have that same power on the inside of you. That’s awesome!
A guy walked up to me once and said, “I have a sore neck, my back hurts, and I have sciatica all the way down my leg so that my feet are numb. I have neuropathy…,” and he started naming all sorts of other ailments. I just listened to him. Then he looked at me and said, “But do you know what? I could live with the rest if God would just heal the pain that’s in my back and neck.”
I answered, “Oh, I understand what you’re saying. If we were to ask God to heal your neck, back, nerves, feet—everything—the lights in heaven might dim. I’m not sure God could pull all that off at once. Let’s not ask Him for very much.”
This guy looked at me and said, “What I said was kind of dumb, wasn’t it?”
I said, “Yes, it was. Real dumb.”
That’s the way many people approach God. They say, “Oh God, I’m just asking this little bit of You. Could You please spare enough power to do this?” As a born-again believer, you have the same power on the inside of you that raised Jesus from the dead. That is greater than the power it took to create the universe. Raising Jesus from the dead is the greatest display of God’s power in the history of the universe. Yet here we are saying, “Oh God, could You heal a cold?” I’ve had people come up to me asking, “Can God heal AIDS?” That just expresses how full of unbelief we are.
You have the same power on the inside of you that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. All things are possible with God. It’s not the Lord who is out there turning the power switch on and off. He’s placed His generator—His power—on the inside of you. If you aren’t seeing the power of God, it’s not because God hasn’t given you His power. It’s because you haven’t flipped the switch. You haven’t turned on and released His power. God has already done it. By grace it’s already been provided.
Now are you going to reach out in faith and partake of what God has provided, or will you keep asking God as if He hasn’t done anything? Are you going to continue in unbelief saying, “Oh God, would You please move in my life?” when the Bible reveals that He’s already moved? Are you going to ask God to rend the heavens, not believing that He has already rent the heavens and come down through Jesus? Are you going to ask Him to heal you when He says that by His stripes you were healed? Are you going to ask Him to give you joy and peace and pour out His love in your life when the Word says that you already have the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, and peace? It’s already on the inside of you—and that’s good news!
When I minister these truths, people usually wonder, Well then, what do we pray? I’m glad you asked! The vast majority of the body of Christ prays nothing but unbelief, which is the reason their prayers are not yielding results. I know this issue is a sacred cow. I’m aware this teaching is offensive to some people, but the vast majority of Christians aren’t pleased with the results they’re getting from their prayers. Yet, they become offended if someone suggests to them that they aren’t praying correctly. They want to keep doing the same thing, but expect different results. That’s wrong. If what you’re doing isn’t working, you ought to consider that maybe you’re doing something wrong. Your prayers would be much more effective if you just began thanking God for what He’s already done instead of asking Him to do something that He hasn’t. It takes faith to thank God.
If you’re believing for healing, but you haven’t seen or felt the manifestation yet, start thanking and praising God. Colossians 2:7 reveals that faith abounds with thanksgiving. If you would start thanking God, your faith would rise up and all of a sudden things would start happening. It’s much easier to say, “Oh Father, thank You, thank You, thank You that You’ve already done it.” If you spend enough time meditating and thanking God for what He’s done, you’ll start believing that He’s done it. And the moment you believe it, grace and faith together will release the supernatural power of God and you’ll experience in your body what God has already provided. Halleluiah!!
Gracious Father I thank you for your power mightily at work in me. I walk with the consciousness of your power. Today my hands are anointed to heal the sick and raise the dead, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
