No Longer Mere Men
Creflo Dollar

When you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, the Holy Spirit moved in and became one with your spirit (Ephesians 1:13). Everything about the Holy Spirit is now true about you, because you’re one with Him.

Ephesians 3:16 says the Holy Spirit, Who now resides in you, released the spirit of might—the ability to do all things—on the inside of you. Ephesians 1:19, 20 says the very power that raised Jesus from the dead—that immeasurable, unlimited power—has been put on the inside of you. Zoë life has been put on the inside of you. Then, 1 John 4:17 says, “As he is, so are we in this world.”

Ladies and gentlemen, that’s a powerful thing; right now, you who are born again possess everything that God has on the inside of Him. I know it’s hard for some of you to grasp that truth, because the Bible refers to God as the Almighty God. So how can we, mere humans, be as mighty as God?

Might is the ability to do all things. We’ve already established that the Holy Spirit has released the Spirit of might on the inside of you. It’s in there!

Now, in the Old Testament, the Spirit of might was not on the inside of people; it had to come on them. Take Elijah, for example. The Bible says the hand of God came mightily upon him, and he outran Ahab’s chariots to the entrance of Jezreel (1 Kings 18:46).

It’s important that we discern Old Testament truth from New Testament truth. People in the Old Testament were not born again. Their spirits had not been recreated. They didn’t have this injection of power, in the person of the Holy Spirit, on the inside. Study it out for yourself (1 Samuel 5:6; 2 Kings 3:15; Ezra 7:6, 28; Ezekiel 3:14). The hand of God, His might, came upon all of those Old Testament prophets. But today, it’s in us. It’s eternally residing in us.

You may be thinking, “But, I didn’t deserve it.” That’s my point. It’s in you by grace! If you live for one hundred years, you couldn’t earn or deserve it. The Bible says you’re saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8). Salvation is a free gift from God. So is grace (Romans 5:15).

You’re walking around with every answer to every prayer. Some of you are struggling financially, and you don’t even know you’ve got millionaire potential inside you. You’re sick, and healing power is inside you. You’re not happy, and the joy of the Lord is inside you. But you’re satisfied with acting like a mere human, continuing to ignore this grace that richly abounds toward you! (2 Corinthians 9:8).

The key to withdrawing from your spirit, from the supernatural realm, is to renew your mind with the Word of God. All of your old thought patterns come from the world. If you don’t renew your mind with the Word, you’re only going to believe what you’ve believed all of your life, before you got saved. You will only believe what you can sense with your five physical senses.

Mind renewal takes time; it’s a daily process. It’s an exchange process. You have to begin to allow God’s Word to change the way you think. It starts with reading the Bible on a daily basis so you’ll know how to adjust your thinking. You exchange your old thoughts for the Word of God thoughts. You renew your mind so it agrees with your new, born-again spirit. If you want results, you can’t ignore this process. As you renew your mind, you’ll begin to see great, significant change in your life. You’ll pull proof over into the natural realm from the supernatural realm, and prove the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God for your life!

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2, NLT)

If you’re born again, you are God’s own workmanship, His own handiwork, recreated in Christ Jesus! (Ephesians 2:10). The Holy Spirit dwells in your born-again spirit, so it is perfect, flawless. It’s just like God! To learn how to tap into the spirit of might, which now resides in you, get my life-changing series Living Your Dream Life. It’s time to begin living the good life that God prearranged and made ready for you to live!
