Power From On High

Wednesday, 15 January

John 14:15-17: If you love me, you will do what I command. I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever. The Helper is the Spirit of truth. The people of the world cannot accept him, because they don’t see him or know him. But you know him. He lives with you, and he will be in you.

So many of God’s people are tired to the point of exhaustion. Following Jesus is about going against the flow. That’s hard work. We face a lot of resistance. But God, well, He wants to renew your strength, in the most powerful way.

One of the things I’ve noticed is that I myself don’t have the power that I need to live the life that God wants me to live. Have you noticed that too? We try … and we fail. What we need is power from on high. And that’s exactly what Jesus has in mind.

John 14:15-17 If you love me, you will do what I command. I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever. The Helper is the Spirit of truth. The people of the world cannot accept him, because they don’t see him or know him. But you know him. He lives with you, and he will be in you.

So just before He was crucified, Jesus promised His disciples that He would send them another helper, another counsellor, another advocate, another comforter … just like Him.

And after He’d risen from the dead and ascended into Heaven, He did just that. The Holy Spirit fell on this hapless gaggle of fishermen, tax collectors and the like and you name it, they did it: the preaching, the miracles, the thousands that came to Christ … but how? Well, they’d received power from above – the very same power that’s available to you and me, here and now.

So why is it, you have to ask yourself, that we keep on trying to do it all in our own strength?

If you love me, you will do what I command. I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
