2 Timothy 1:1-7
Many of God’s people need to know how to activate the power of God in them for an effective life and ministry.
Every human being created in the image of God carries God’s image, and the ability to do the extra ordinary things. As a genuine believer, the fullness of God’s personality is deposited in you. It is written in Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Paul said to Timothy, “Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands” (2 Timothy 1:6). It’s your responsibility to activate the power of God in you to produce results. These gifts cannot manifest when you are living in sin and unrighteousness. The Lord Jesus said you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost has come on you. He’s in you now that you’re born again, which means His power is in you. However, if you want to see the release of the power of God in your life, the first thing you must learn to do is declare God’s Word boldly and in faith. The Word of God is God; His Word is where the glory is. Therefore, as you meditate on the Word and speak it forth, you create an atmosphere for the miraculous in, and around you. Another sure and quick way to activate and energize your spirit for the power in you to be effective is speaking or praying in tongues. When you pray in tongues, your spirit is stirred; the power of God wells up like currents from your spirit. That power works on your mind such that you’re transported to the higher realms of the supernatural. 1 Corinthians 14:4 says the one who speaks in tongues edifies himself; he charges up himself like a battery. When a car battery is left inactive for a while, you’d need to charge it again to restore it to an effective state. In the same way, the power of God in your spirit can be dormant and inactive except you “charge up” your spirit and get it perpetually active by speaking in tongues.
