Romans 8:11 NLT
“The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, He will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.”
Series: The Resurrection Power
This week we have been studying about the resurrection power of Jesus. We have been learning how the resurrection power can invade, change and make a difference in our life.
It might get easy to say that the proof of Jesus’ resurrected power in you is, ‘your transformed life.’ But, how does is practically affect our life?
The scripture Romans 8:11 is about a promise of the Holy Spirit in you and with you.
That would mean the Holy Spirit has covered you from the inside and outside. ‘A sandwiched presence’.
This was a foreign belief to the Old Testament believers because the Holy Spirit would come/rest upon someone (Eg. Samson, Samuel, David, Saul..) which would cause them to have victorious feats for a specific time interval.
Whereas, the New Testament talks about the Holy Spirit being inside of you. On the inside, you can have sin, the power of death but the Scripture explains that the Spirit lives within us, which makes the body a temple of the Holy Spirit.
That’s the best revelation of freedom one could ever have!
The power that lives inside you is greater than the power than is around you. The power of this world can boast about the temptation, the black magic and many other powers that can try to bring you down but the Holy Spirit causes you to float or rise up without sinking.
Prayer: Holy Spirit I acknowledge Your presence inside me and I declare because You are inside me I will rise from these ashes, dust and grave victoriously. No whale that has swallowed me can keep me inside for a long time, the whale will spit me into my destiny because there is a living Jesus inside of me!
