Through the crucifixion of Christ, we received the most powerful gift we can ever be given, the Holy Spirit, and now he lives in everyone that has accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Knowing this, we have the most powerful element of life within us all the time, even when we don’t feel his presence. The Holy Spirit is kryptonite to satan and his minions. To put this in perspective, kryptonite is a fictional mineral that deprived Superman of his powers. Our kryptonite, The Holy Spirit (not fictional) denies the evil one from destroying us. Our kryptonite, The Holy Spirit, takes away the evil one’s power over our lives. When we rely on Jesus and him alone (in a state of dependence), there’s no stopping us because Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit to reside in us in his absence. We will be challenged and tested but will remain victorious in the Lord. When we know we are in a struggle but hold fast to our faith; we are victors. Our challenges test our faith and produce perseverance, endurance, and patience, all things that equip us for the battles of life. If we have faith, even as small as a mustard seed, how can we fail? The power is ignited by our faith.
“We will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on us, and we will be his witnesses.” Acts 1:8 NIV
“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.“ Luke 17:6 NIV
The Holy Spirit gives us the words to speak to our troubles and command them to move, to leave, to evaporate.
There is a God-given lesson in each of our life’s experiences. Faith shifts our perspective and you will see beauty in the struggles, and even losing a battle from time to time. The struggle is God preparing us to continue our journey more empowered through the testing of our faith and the lessons learned.
“Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation.”
2 Peter 3:15 NIVUK
We are Christian Warriors and part of a strong army whose leader dwells within us. Our kryptonite (power) lives within us. It is the Holy Spirit, who is always glowing brightly within us and through us for others to see. We are his powerful witnesses that have kryptonite within us. It is through the Trinity that we live. The Holy Spirit is one part of the Trinity: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.
- God is our Father.
- Jesus, our Lord and Savior, sits with The Father and intercedes on our behalf.
- The Holy Spirit lives in us to direct and maneuver us around the traps of the evil one.
