“In this year of 5771, we are entering a new season of unbridled power.” James 1:26 says, “If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.” James 3:3 adds, “Now if we put the bits into the horses’ mouths so that they may obey us, we direct their entire body as well.”
The Holy Spirit is the One Who gives us power and He is the One Who controls the release of that power. The power can only be unbridled when we have yielded ourself to Him, when we have turned over the reigns of our life to Him and said, “I am Yours.” Our affections, our desires, our old mindsets can hinder the work of Holy Spirit in our lives. He is looking for those that He can whisper a word and we obey; He can give a gentle nudge and we turn our course. Father God wants us to “Come Up Higher” to a new level of power and authority, but these will be ours only when we have fully yielded “our rights, our dreams, our desires,” to His control.
This short video clip is a perfect visual of yieldedness. Picture yourself as the horse and Holy Spirit as the rider. Enjoy the beauty!
