Nobody likes to fall ill. Right? Lol! Recently I was ill and I couldn’t move around the way I thought and wished. During this period, all that people told me was, “Make sure you rest, eat and get medications.” I didn’t feel up to doing all three of them, but it wasn’t up to my feelings. I needed the energy!
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit [who is] in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
Elijah outran Ahab’s chariot, this wasn’t because he suddenly developed superpowers but because the hand of the Lord rested upon him. As a prophet who understood the essence of times and seasons, he was in hiding for a length of time. Throughout all of that time, he only had the same type of food delivered exclusively to him in a cave. Still, he was enabled for exploits!
1 Kings 18:46 And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
There are various plans, goals, tasks, or missions you’re set out to achieve in the second half of the year and it might look impossible to the human mind. Still, who could have thought or imagined that Elijah would run faster than a horse? 😳 Who could have guessed that Goliath the giant, would be taken down by a stone from the bag of the young man David? 😳
Luke 1:35 The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.
The Holy Spirit is the spirit of God, and he is here to enable you. He is here to empower you. He is here to help you achieve more than you can ever ask or think. Don’t ever limit His operation to that of material provisions or miracles, instead trust Him to help you through.
Ephesians 3:20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Remember, it’s not by your power or your might, it is by the spirit of God. Rely on His power, for He is the ultimate enabler!
