It takes Working in power to subdue satan, sustain motion, to move forward and keep moving with out obstruction. For one to work in power he/ she needs to know what is written in the scripture. Practice what is written in the scripture and make it his life style.

Because when you don’t know what is written you will not know what to apply. The Bible has given us power to win the devil and Jesus ensures us nothing shall hurt us. But when you don’t know you can fall victim to the devil. Many people are where they are today because of shortage of power. They are frustrated, stagnated unable to move forward because they lack power.

Steps to working in power

1. Being born again

Born again is repenting from your old way of life. Saying no to any thing that self can offer example stealing drinking alcoholic, envy, strife and so many other things that does not glory God

John 1vs 12 , Romans 1vs4, Romans 8 vs 19. Sonship equals power. Being born again is an admission in to school of power. John 1 vs 12 says As many that receive him, to them he gave the power to be come children of God.

Here in John 1 verse 12, it says those that receive him he gave them power, ability, grace to able to be working in power. Here we see that when we do not know him, we can not be able to work in power. We will be powerless , incapacitated.

More still for us to work and keep working in power, being born again, given Jesus Christ all in us is Paramount. Remain sonship equals power. You are more powerful when you know who you believe in or who is backing you up.

Romans 1 verse 4 says and who through the spirit of holiness was appointed the son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Here we can see clearly that born again begat holiness and holiness gives birth to power by his resurrection from the dead. For us to be working in power we ought to repent and live a holy live.

2. Flowing in the spirit

Acts 1 verse 8,  Micah 3 vs 8, Luke 4  vs 14, 2 Timothy 1 vs 7. Let’s start with Act 1 vs 8 which says but you shall receive power when the holy Spirit comes on you: and you shall be my witness in Jerusalem, and in all Judah and Samarian, and to the end of the earth. Flowing in the spirit enables us to work in power. Flowing in the spirit is not only speaking in tongues, it is beyond that.

When we flow in the spirit, it gives us power to manifest, subdue satanic kingdoms. Do you know when you flow in the spirit is gives you power to be strong spiritually, just as you know spiritual controls the physical. Luke 4 vs 14 says Jesus returns to Galilee in the power of the spirit, and news about him spread through the whole country side.

If you desire to be working in power you need to flow in the spirit, apart from speaking in tongues, allowing the spirit of God to lead you. That is why 2 Timothy 1 vs 7 say s that we have not received the spirit of dear, but of power, love and sound mind. Okay, let me ask, when you do not have sound mind can you work in power? The answer is No.

We need the spirit of God almighty to be able to work in the spirit. Because it will give us power, love and sound mind to be able to be working in power especially in this our generation. Working in power can not be over emphasize. When we are working or flowing in the spirit we have to be attentive to the direction of the holy Spirit.

3. Life style of worship and praise

For us to be working in power ought to develop a consistent worship and praise life style. Psalm 21 vs 13 says be exalted in your strength, Lord;we will sing and praise your strength, Psalm 150 vs 1 says praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens, God dwells in the praise of his people. When we praise and worship God , God will always be with us and continually gives us power to work. Our Lord can not be in a place where where there is fighting, strife. But when we worship and praise him from our hearts he comes down to dwell with us.

Acts 16 vs 25-26.  Says About mid night Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a violent earth quake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chain came loose . Hallelujah. Worship and praise can do undo.  It librate, power us to keep working in power in this perverse generation.

The kind of worship and praise that makes us to work in power:

1. Consecration/ personal praise and worship

2. Soaking in worship and praise,

Psalm 22 vs 3, says yet you are enthroned as the holy one; you are the one Israel praise. It can also be paraphrase, you are the one I praise. When we praise God and God alone, he empowers us to be working in power. Psalm 16 vs 11, it says you make known to me the part of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasure at your right hand.

4. Seeking God early

Another way we can be working in power is forming the habit of seeking God early. When we seek God early we will be more strong to face the daily activities knowing fully well that God is with us. Psalm 63 1-2 and it says you, God,are my God, earnestly I seek you;I thirst for you, my whole being long for you in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Genesis 19 vs 27 says Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. Dear , what is the first thing you do when you wake up. Seeking God early makes you to worry less if you know whom you have commune with which will help you to keep working in power all through the day.

Also, Mark 1 vs 35 say very early in the morning while it was still dark, Jesus got up,left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. If our Lord Jesus Christ could seek God early for power to live for Christ, continuous working in power, to subdue devil name your own, talk more we his children. Working in power is also seeking God early to be empowered to keep working in power.

5. Intent studying from God’s word

Paul encourages Timothy to study to show thy self strong a work man…When we don’t study we will miss out what is written for us. Even in John 1 vs 12 say  As many that receive him to them he gave power.

Come on , you need to study the word of God to  know God’s promises which will help you to keep working  in power. You may read I Know Who I am 1 Peter 2: 9 Sermon.
