Dailies On The Vine

Where Is The Power?

The Lord said to me yesterday many do not walk in the Spirit’s power because they refuse to walk through times of testing.

The Gospel has never been weak – but the Church and it’s Body are weak when we do not allow the perfect power-filled Word to test us. We do not have endurance because our faith hasn’t been tested. (James 1:2-4). We settle for comfort, and complain God has not “done” for us. The fruit is immaturity that tastes not the sweetness of the Vine.

Maturity is not how much you “know”, maturity is how much you yield. Mature sons and daughters yield to the leading of testing and pruning. The Holy Spirt led Jesus into the wilderness to be tested and 40 days later He came out “armed with the Holy Spirit’s power”. Where is the power? It will be given to you to the degree that you yield to the Holy Spirit.

“From the moment of his baptism, Jesus overflowed with the Holy Spirit. He was taken by the Spirit from the Jordan into the wilderness of Judea to experience for forty days the ordeal of testing by the accuser. He ate no food during this time and ended his forty-day fast very hungry.” Luke‬ ‭4:1-2‬ ‭TPT‬‬
40 Days later ….
“Then Jesus, armed with the Holy Spirit’s power, returned to Galilee, and his fame spread throughout the region.” Luke‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

  1. Respectfully, I disagree with the opinion that many refuse to walk in the Spirit’s power through times of testing. I believe we have been! However, as in a marriage, it takes two to want a relationship. The power drain comes from neglect, as revealed in our collective conversation: Benefit of the Doubt 06 Apr 21 | truthinus (wordpress.com). God’s been doing His best. It’s man who keeps repeatedly dropping the ball when God gives us chance after chance to repair the damage. The sacred in the ordinary is overlooked. Then stalkers take God’s grace for granted when the truth fires become uncomfortable. Then others come along later and beat us up for not being strong enough. The Enablers are so bent on their war agendas that there is no room for mercy. This is not representative of how the five-fold is supposed to work.
