"Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city." - Acts 8:5-8 (KJV)
Bible Reading: 1 Peter 2:24, Revelations 5:6, Romans 1:16
We need to be conscious of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the power of God. When you carry the Holy Spirit, you carry the power of God within you. When you carry the Holy Spirit, you become a testimony and an anointed vessel.
The principal key to the Acts of the Holy Spirit is not just power consciousness but faith. When you believe and speak in the name of Jesus, you speak under the his authority. You become a problem solver for those around you. When you put your faith in His authority, you become a vessel of honour and a channel of his power.
God used Paul to perform several miracles and wonders. It was not though his natural ability but by the power of God on Paul's life that he was able to lay hands on the sick and they received their healing. It was by the name of Jesus.
The name of Jesus is a leveler. If you believe, you can speak in the name of Jesus and be used to perform wonders. It doesn't matter if you are a pastor or a new convert. When you have the Holy Spirit, you will experience Dunamis - the explosive power of God.
Don't let your insecurities affect you from being used by God. Have confidence and faith in His word, His name and His Spirit. As a child of God, you are allowed to speak in the language of the Spirit. You have been given authority by God, the father, over kingdoms of darkness, demons, natural substances, sickness, poverty, depression and death. You have authority with Christ. You have authority in the name of Jesus.
