Have you experienced living in absolute power? Jesus promised: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.” (Acts 1:8a) The word “power” in this verse derives from the Greek word “dunamis,” which, according to Strong’s Concordance is translated into English as “absolute power.” The same word is used by Paul in Ephesians when He wrote: “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.” (Ephesians 3:20) What does God’s power look like? Is it manifested in our life?

In other words, can we identify things we’re doing which are clearly outside of what we ever thought we could do?

Because absolute power comes from the “Holy” Spirit, for His power to flow through us, we must choose holiness. Paul said of Christ that He “was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness.” (Romans 1:4) If we wish to have the power of God within us then His holiness must dominate our life. Sin makes us weak because it is unholy and separates us from God’s presence. God is our strength.

When we begin to draw close to God, He reveals our unholiness and we desire to get rid of it. His light reveals the cancer of our sin. We see how it makes us spiritually weak. As we get rid of it, He heals us and becomes our strength. Does that mean we move mountains? Well, sometimes the greatest mountains we must move are the ones inside our heart. When the power of His holiness fills us–we are miraculously transformed. We possess wisdom beyond our intellectual capacity. We love when we are not loved, we are humble when we are hurt; at peace amidst the crashing storm. We are given guidance to accomplish things we once thought impossible. This is the power of the Spirit of holiness. It is absolute because it comes from God. When we His power is within us, nothing is impossible!
