The Power Is Always Flowing – Part 2 (Article)

If you’re a believer, there is never a time when you are void of the power of God. I’m not talking about the power of God inside of you. I’m talking about the power of God manifesting tangibly through you.

We get so focused on our problems and the negative things going on, that sometimes we can convince ourselves that despite the fact that the Lord is in us, nothing good is manifesting right now. This is a complete lie. How could we make this assumption? Can you see the power of God inside of you? Can you see to what extent it is manifesting forth from your flesh? So how would you know how much it is manifesting or not? This is why you need to go by what the Lord has told you. And the Lord has said that for anyone that believes in Him, the Holy Spirit is flowing forth from them like a river of living water. And that’s talking about the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, tangibly in your life.

John 7:38-39 (KJV) He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit…)

This verse says that for those who believe, the Holy Spirit is, in fact, pouring forth from them like rivers of living water. Do you believe what Jesus has done for you? OK, so then the Lord says that the Holy Spirit is currently manifesting forth from you. Right now. But you say, your knowledge isn’t full? Sure, join the club. The Holy Spirit doesn’t start manifesting from you when your knowledge is full. The Holy Spirit is manifesting forth from you as long as your belief is in what Jesus has done. And for a Christian, that’s all the time. Whether you detect it or not.

There was a man named Gideon in the Bible. The Lord had given him promises that he would defeat the army of the Midianites, and easily. But Gideon was concerned about the situation, nonetheless. The Lord told him that if he was fearful, to go spy on the Midianite army. Gideon did so and he heard two Midianite soldiers discussing a dream that one of them had about how they would be defeated (Judges 7:10).

Gideon had been given a promise from God, but as far as he could see, nothing was happening regarding the Midianite army. This grew Gideon’s concern. And yet, meanwhile God was giving the Midianite soldiers dreams to show their inevitable defeat by Gideon. God was working in the background this entire time, in ways that Gideon could not see, bringing to pass what He told Gideon, because Gideon believed Him.

Now, imagine if Gideon had never spied on the Midianites. Even though God was working in the background, Gideon couldn’t see it and Gideon might have assumed that the power of God was simply not working. Everything looked the same for him. Everything felt the same for him. And yet the power of God was working because Gideon believed Him. 

Your eyeballs cannot see what’s going on in the spiritual realm. You can’t physically see the Holy Spirit‘s power leaking out from inside of you. You need to go off what the Lord has told you. He said that for anyone that believes Him, His power is working. There are no if ands or buts about it. Can we all grow in our knowledge? Of course, but that does not change the fact that if you believe in the Lord at all, the Holy Spirit is working through you and the power is always flowing. Even though you may not be able to detect it. God said it. Therefore, it is true.
