15 Apr Jesus, Our Model of Activation
To be activated, you must have an activator. In this world (on this side), nothing originates from itself. Even ideas are conceived. Jesus, at the beginning of his earthly ministry, also received the Holy Spirit, the true Activator. In Luke 4:18, we read, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me….” The Spirit of the Lord upon Jesus was the seal of authority and of power entrusted to him by the Father. This power or anointing of the Spirit gives one the ability to break yokes. Read Luke 4:18,19, as Jesus explains the purpose of the activation. He was anointed: (1) To announce publicly the Good News to the poor; (2) To heal those overwhelmed by grief or disappointment; (3) To set those in bondage free; (4) To give sight to those with no vision; (5) To cast out demons and; (6) To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Jesus, with the activated power of the Kingdom, went into action.
Prayer: Father, thank you for the faithful pattern you gave us in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We thank you for those who walked in the activated of power and authority, used by you O’ Lord, to transform our lives. Thank you for our salvation, healing, deliverance, peace and hope. In Jesus Name.
