“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
– John 16:13-15
One of the most important lessons I’ve learned through years of studying the Bible and doing ministry work is that we gain greater authority when we understand our call. The Lord’s gift to us in Jesus is one of impartation; in other words, He has given us His Spirit to make us holy and powerful like He is. Though it can feel uncomfortable to grasp this because we are fallible and broken people, as Christians, our impact in the world increases hugely when we understand that we are chosen to give sight to an invisible God. Our Savior no longer walks among us, but as His disciples, we are conduits of His presence and power to other people. When we lay hands on someone and pray for them, it’s as if Jesus Himself is laying His hands on them. And when we go forth to serve a neighbor or care for a friend, it carries the same spiritual clout as if it were our Lord in the flesh. The Word of God is either true or it isn’t, and if we say it’s our final authority, it’s imperative that we not shrink back from our anointing. We are chosen to carry the fullness of Christ to people in broken jars of clay, and when the Church walks in this awakening, the earth will be changed for the better!
My friend, you have the honor and privilege of giving sight to an invisible God. As a disciple of Jesus, you are full of the Holy Spirit, and the same power that lives in Him resides in you. Therefore, be bold in faith and step out in your anointing, knowing that your hands are His hands and your feet are His feet. Catch the vision of His Kingdom and let Him bring Heaven to earth through you as you pray for, encourage, and invite healing on behalf of others — whether the sick, the sinful, or the saints.
Jesus, use my life and all that is in me to give sight to your heart, your power, and your priorities.
