The Power Of The Most High (Luke 1:34-35)
“Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you, therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.” (NKJV)
Mary's life was turned upside down and everything changed for her in a moment, when she received a visitation from the angel Gabriel! When she was given the news of the imminent birth of Jesus, her heart was filled with questions. She was an innocent young girl, and because she had never "known" a man she asked the angel how this could be possible. Gabriel replied that it would be through the power of the Holy Spirit. Heaven broke into earth and God changed the course of human history when a young girl said "yes" to God and yielded to the moving of the Holy Spirit upon her life.
The Holy Spirit will come upon you. When the Holy Spirit came upon Mary, I believe that the supernatural power of God filled her from head to toe! A miracle began to happen within her, as her virgin womb was filled with the zoe life of God and the Word of God (spoken upon her by Gabriel) became flesh, hallelujah! There are prophetic words spoken over you which are waiting to be fulfilled. There are dreams and visions you are wanting to see manifested in the flesh, and all these become a reality through the power of the Holy Spirit. When Holy Spirit breathes upon the Word of God, it comes alive. When He comes upon the dreams God gave you, they begin to take shape and start to manifest from your spiritual womb. There are so many good things awaiting you, which the precious Holy Spirit is waiting to take you into. Will you allow the Holy Spirit to come upon you? He brings life transformation and fruitfulness when He comes. He changes hearts and minds, and shows us the new and living way. He takes us deeper into Jesus and shows us how to please His heart. He gives us a revelation of our Father's love, and makes us Sons and daughters of God.
The Power of the Highest will overshadow you. We have access to the greatest possible power - the power of the Highest! He is the glorious and powerful third person of the Trinity, the blessed Holy Spirit. He says to you today "Will you let Me overshadow you, precious one? Will you let My presence fill you so much that I flow out of every part of you? Will you let yourself be so lost in Me that you begin to walk in your new holy identity? People will look at you and see Jesus smiling through you, loving them and accepting them as He would do. Let Me so cover you that you will be saturated, marinaded and invigorated with My love, My strength, My energy. You will feel the freshness of My presence every moment, and My constant protection over you. Where I am, there is freedom, there is peace, there is glory. Let Me set you apart and baptize you afresh, with the fire of My presence. There is nothing impossible with Me."
Dear friend, God is just about to do something powerful and dramatic in your life. He wants to fill you to overflowing and to release His love and power through you wherever you go. You are going to see the impossible coming to pass right before your eyes because of the mighty moving of the Holy Spirit in your life. Like Mary, you and I can humble ourselves and receive. We can submit ourselves and believe. You can say: "Come upon me, precious Holy Spirit. Overshadow me with your powerful presence and fill me with your healing, freeing heavenly Life. I yield myself to you this day and I ask You to have Your way in me, in Jesus' name, amen!"
