Using the illustration of the Potential and Kinetic Energy in explaining how to activate the power of the Holy Spirit, Pastor Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun at the August 18 Sunday second service said that the Holy Spirit puts in believers the potential power at salvation; but that power would only come to work when the believer puts to action, that power stored up in them.
In her words, “The Holy Ghost is in every believer and He is the power that is working in you; but it is according to the power at work in you that you can do things and receive all you need. You need to use the Holy Spirit that you have in you.”
Speaking from Ephesians 3:20, 1 Corinthians 2:12, she said that believers must begin to use the power in the Blood of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. According to Pastor Tolu, once God’s word is sent out to a believer, it is binding but seeing its manifestation would depend on the believer aligning himself or herself with that spoken word of God. “You have all it takes for you to rule and reign in this realm because you are a child of God,” she said.
She further said that the Holy Spirit is everything to the believer but the human mind in trying to fathom the ways of God, will always limit what He can do through them. She urged them to move to the realm of all possibilities and limitlessness through the Holy Spirit by not being limited with their thought or sight.
Just as Light cannot come on except you switch on the light source, so also, you need to activate the power of the Holy Spirit in you to see His manifestation now. The Spirit of God is alive, active and at work,” she said.
