WE PRAY A BLESSED THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL!
Listen to an Old Testament Prophet, a “Minor” Prophet he is labeled today: “But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord.” Micah 3:8
The POWER of the Holy Spirit!
The Hebrew verb “male” not only means “to be full, to be satisfied,” but also “to be consecrated, replenished, satisfied,” and even twice “to be overflowed!”
Oh, to be THAT controlled and indwelt by the Holy Spirit!
The noun “power” (spelled “koach”) means “to be firm, strong.” At least its root word does. Also “might, force, ability, wealth.”
“By” is a particle (preposition) meaning “together with.”
So I can declare with Bible authority … the Holy Spirit of God is the Divine Agent of Power!
After His 40 days of Temptation, defeating the devil at every turn … Luke 4:14 tells us of Jesus: “And Jesus returned in THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.”
The Lord Himself … empowered by the Holy Spirit!
Today, Thanksgiving Day, let’s all ask our Heaven Father to so endue us. With the fullness of His Spirit, the Spirit Who empowers us to live acceptably to our Redeemer!

I recall years ago hearing a Preacher tell us that he prayed dozens of times a day, in fact hundreds of times some days … “God give me the Power of Thy Spirit! Oh, Lord give me Power!”
