When great men of God like Papa Adeboye, Benny Hinn, Benson Idahosa and the likes are being mentioned, you will notice that all of them are men of great power. What did they do before the could get the unrestricted access to God's power? Is it just mere reading the Bible and praying? I guess not (though its important), I am certain there's more to it, because if it was like that everybody would have gotten that access too. The power of God is just a cheap commodity or something accessible to everybody. There was something special they must have done before the could triggered this power on them.

What many Christians do know is that the power of God is actually the Holy Spirit, it says in Acts 1vs 8 that "But ye shall receive power, after the holy spirit is come upon you.. ". You noticed that " is" was written and not "has", to show that immediately you have the Holy Spirit you have the power of God. The power of God is not just restricted only in healing the sick, casting out demons or speaking on tongues (that is most christian ideology). There are many other unimaginable things you can do with that power. Now, the question here is that, how can one effectively recieve and flow with the Holy Spirit? Sadly, a book is not even enough to contain the dealings of the Holy Spirit, but I will try my best to remain brief as possible.

There are many things you must set in place before you are made eligible to tap in of the power of God. Like i said earlier, God's power is not cheap, once you understand this, the power of God will be flowing through you like a river.


1. You must be born again

It is written in the Bible that "until a man is born again, he cannot see God". If you cannot see God then how do you want to witness His Almighty power? Being a born again means being absolutely free from the bondage of sin and darkness. Do you know that the Heavens rejoices when a single soul is saved? Once you are born again, Jesus will happily answer all your sincere prayer requests. God hate sinners because he cannot withstand sin and the bible says "for the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". Once you are born again, the holy Spirit will be abide in you.


2. Hunger is needed

For you to start experiencing even a pinch of God's power, you must long for it. Spiritual hunger is that uncontrollable passion of a man for God. It drives a man to be thirsting for God more and more everyday. Hunger makes you do things that are considered foolish in the eyes of men. A wise man once said "if you read a spiritual book and you don't have that hunger for God, then he cannot get more than head knowledge". If you don't have any spiritual hunger at all, am afraid that you can't make progress in your spiritual life. One funny thing about that spiritual hunger is that it can never be satisfied until death arrives. Matt 8:6 says "blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for the shall be filled". This implies that until you get to heaven before you can get filled because once you lose your hunger for God on earth, then you cannot go far.


3. Meditation and prayers

The next step is to hop into meditation on the word and pray fervently. This process help you to know God better and unleash God's power upon your life. You can't tell me you want the power of God without praying and studying the Bible. This act drives a person closer to God especially when it is done consistently. Men like Elijah, Jesus, Paul and the rest, got this basic understanding which catapulted their life to greatness. Am very disappointed that even the devil knows the Bible more than the so called christians. Find a quiet time to be alone with God (praying and meditating consistently). Jesus said that the truth shall set you free. You can only know the truth by meditation on the Bible and praying.


4. Sacrifice

Before God's power can be released upon you, there's a sure need for sacrifice. Sacrifice maybe on form of vows, giving up a price possession or even your time. A man of sacrifice is a man of power, sacrifices propelles God's presence mightily on you. Just like Abraham that was ready to give up his son for God, and because of this God's presence was always there with him. If you want to release God's power upon your life then offer a sacrificial offering to him. Do you God values sacrifices more than prayers? Because it shows you are ready to give up everything for him and surely, you will never get disappointed. Jesus himself had to sacrifice himself for us to be saved, which earned him to sit down at the right hand side of God.


5. Faith

Jesus was trying to illustrate how powerful faith is by saying" if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you will move mountains". So this ultimately means the larger the faith, the larger the power. The devil knows very well about how powerful faith is, that's why he is trying to suppress our faith. It is very shameful that many Christian's faith is not even enough to shift a piece of paper talkless of a mountain. Jesus loves people that have faith and so answers there prayer more quickly (matt 8:5-13). It is true that the power of God is already vested upon us (mark 16:17), but the truth is that without faith we can never exercise that power. It is just like using a smartphone without a battery, Because a battery powers up that phone and with the phone you can do numerous tasks. There are many stories in the Bible that emphasizes on faith, to show that faith is very important when dealing with power.


6. Consistency and communion

This is the last piece of the puzzle, though they are much but i will stop here. You need a consistent communion with the holy Spirit to have unlimited access to power of God. Consistency is necessary, no matter how short it is, as far you are being intentional, then you are making progress, and as time flies, you will soon realize the importance of a having a longer communion with God. A man that prays 30mins everyday is better than a man who pray for 5hrs every month. Without consistent communion, we cant understand God and His ways. It is always said in the Bible that Jesus usually withdraw from his disciples to talk to God, his father.

Are you not tired of calling a pastor after you had a terrible dream? Or are you not tired of being a powerless human being? That same power that Jesus has, dwells in you and even more than that. Unless you are tired of your situation, you will be struggling to succeed. You need to buckle up and fight till you have that same power that Jesus has. It is not necessary you must be a pastor or a prophet before you can access this power. You can also be a businessman or a teacher and still have that power. Actually, God has not called everyone to the five star ministry (which is the pastor, prophet, apostles, teacher, or intercessor), everybody has thier respective purpose to fulfill. You need power(holy spirit) to ultimately fulfill that purpose, if not you will be left wasted or injured in the battle of life.
