If I was hungry and I had some peanut butter and bread in front of me, I’d take the peanut butter, slather it on the bread, and eat. By combining the peanut butter with the bread, I would create a more powerful meal that would better satisfy my hunger than if I ate just the peanut butter or the bread alone.
In the same way, if you’re struggling with a problem―maybe your marriage is crumbling, or your health is poor, or your finances are being drained―you could try to solve it alone; by yourself. But why not tap into the power of God to find the best solution to your problem?
Sometimes we neglect to call upon the power of the Holy Spirit that resides within us when we need help. And when we try to overcome problems by ourselves, we are turning our backs on the most powerful help we could ever receive… God.
Romans 8:11 NKJV says, If the spirit of Him [God] who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
How powerful the Holy Spirit had to be to raise Jesus from the dead after three days! And as a believer, the Word says that same powerful Spirit that raised Christ dwells in you, and you can apply it to your situation. When you infuse the Holy Spirit into the problem you are facing and combine the two together, you put God’s mighty miracle power to work for you!
