HIGH COMMISSION NEEDS POWER ON FROM HIGH
WAITING ON GOD
Jesus commissioned His disciples to go into all the world. Immediately following that He commanded them to WAIT in Jerusalem. The commission needed an empowerment from high because the commission was from high. #We must understand, divine assignments needs divine power for it’s accomplishments and not human power. Some have foolishly tried in their own strength only to fail and have blamed God.
Jesus commanded them to WAIT before they GO. #Remember, ‘Waiting’ precedes ‘Going’ according to the divine principle. He who waits renews the strength and He who fails to wait, goes without the power. If we we go out to seek for the lost without God’s power, we will be lost, for without divine enabling, we are clueless. #The task is so highly spiritual that without wrestling with the dark angels, we can’t move an inch forward and the lost territory cannot be won. Apart from the anointing of God, all carnal wisdom and human ability will fail. It would be utter foolishness to assume that the heaven’s commission would await human strength for it’s accomplishment. The assignment belongs to God, hence the power also must be His’.
We need to understand that our going out there is meaningless without the presence and the power of God. God’s Commission is a Great Commission and such a Great Commission cannot be achieved apart from the power and might of our Great God. He doesn’t want you to do that… And if you still want to do, then you are on your own!!!
God’s power comes with God’s presence and the only way to experience God’s presence is to practice WAITING in God’s PRESENCE. Daily empowerment needs daily Waiting His Presence.
Moses knew this principle very well, that’s why he asked for God’s presence. And he would not budge without God agreeing to his petition. (Exo 33:15). And people who practices the presence of God understands what I mean – The utility of God’s power an futility of human strength.
We may be well reminded, God doesn’t need a favour from us, instead, He wants to do us a favour. He wants to empower you and use you, would you allow Him please?
Remember, faith is an act of will.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we ask you to help us to understand the futility of human power and strength. Help us to be strong in the power of your might that we may be able to accomplish your commission. Amen
