THE COST OF EMPOWERMENT

5 06 2010

–          Naturally, the word “Energy” connotes “Cost”.

–          We all run bills for consuming electrical energy.

–          We also pay to generate power where we choose to, that is; the cost of buying a generating set and the cost of running it¡

–          Cost is therefore a major factor in the school of power.

–          This must be why Jesus said in the parable of the ten Virgins “…but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.” Matthew 25:9

–          However, it does not cost money but it surely costs “something” much more demanding than money.

–          Remember it was said to Simon who offered money to buy power, Peter reacted “thy money perish with you for you have thought you could buy the gift of God with money.” Acts 8:18-21 (paraphrased).

In this series, we shall be focusing on the Fundamental Cost for Supernatural Empowerment.

FUNDAMENTAL COST FOR

SUPERNATURAL EMPOWERMENT

CONSECRATION: Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.” Psalm 45:-6-8

Consecration is unattainable without the help of the Holy Spirit.  II Thess. 2:13

–          He is our sanctifier – Matt.  3:11, 12.

–          He is the mortifier of fleshly works – Rom. 8:13

PRAYER FOCUS: Lord, baptize me with the Spirit of holiness to live a Consecrated life, which will enable me access into the new wine at all time – Lk5: 38-39

  1. PRAYER AND FASTING: “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.” Psalm 63:1-3

PRAYER FOCUS: Lord empower me afresh for greater exploits.(Lk. 4:14)

THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD: “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” – Acts 6:4

PRAYER FOCUS: Lord grants me the grace to stay consistently strong in the consumption (study) of the word. (II Tim. 4:13-15)

THE FELLOWSHIP PLATFORM: They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.” Psalm 84:7
