Table of Contents
YOU are destined to do amazing things. God gave us directions to access holy power through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. However, you don’t possess power to have whatever you desire. You possess strength to accomplish God’s will in God’s timing.
Jesus did say: “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.“ (John 14:12)
Similarly to Jesus, the Holy Spirit is upon you to do great kingdom things. “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.” (Isaiah 61)
