Do you ever feel like you’re running on empty in your spiritual journey? Like you’re capable of so much more, but something’s holding you back? Smith Wigglesworth, a renowned Pentecostal evangelist, had some profound wisdom to share about tapping into your spiritual potential:
“Enter into the promises of God. It is your inheritance. You will do more in one year if you are really filled with the Holy Ghost than you could do in fifty years apart from Him.”—Smith Wigglesworth
Let’s unpack this powerful statement as we see what the Bible has to say about it.
First, consider the concept of inheriting promises. In the Bible, God makes numerous promises to His people. These promises encompass blessings, guidance, protection, and a flourishing life in Him. One of the most famous verses that speaks to this is Jeremiah 29:11,
For I know the plans that I have for you, says the LORD, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.— Jeremiah 29:11 (MEV)
Now, Wigglesworth’s message emphasizes that God’s promises aren’t merely distant hopes. They’re your inheritance as a child of God. To access this inheritance, you need faith and action. You enter into God’s promises by believing in them and living in alignment with His Word.
Adding Power to Promises
But here’s where the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit comes in.
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”— Acts 1:8 (MEV)
The Holy Spirit empowers you to fulfill your divine inheritance. With the Spirit’s guidance, you’ll achieve far more for the Kingdom than you could ever imagine.
So, if you’ve been feeling spiritually stagnant, it’s time to enter into the promises of God with faith, and allow the Holy Spirit to fill you. With His power, you’ll unlock your true potential and accomplish extraordinary things for the Kingdom, far beyond what you could achieve on your own. Your inheritance awaits. Step into it today!
