Here, You Do It

Given Spring 2004
Our pastor preached a sermon on the power of the Holy Spirit tonight that reminded me of another illustration I heard.

Several demons were harassing this guy when he cried out to God for help. God arrived, got out this humongus gun and blew the demons away! He reloaded the gun and gave it to this guy and said, "Now, you know what to do with it." The guy said, "Wow, thanks." He put the gun up on the mantle where he could look at it every morning. It sure looked good. He even polished it every once in awhile.

A few weeks later, more demons were ransacking this guy's house and he cried out to God again to come get rid of these guys. God arrived but said, "I'm not going to do anything this time." He got the gun down off the mantle and said, "Here, you do it!", and stepped back and folded His arms. Looking puzzled, the guy timidly took the gun, pointed it toward the demons, and fired. The demons were gone! He said excitedly, "Hey God, look what I did! Isn't this great?" And God replied, "Yes, you did good. Now the next time, use this powerful weapon I've given you to take care of the enemy."

Isn't that just like we are? Through salvation and the Holy Spirit, we've been given powerful weapons to use against the enemy but we usually will cry out to God or the pastor to come and do it for us. Realize today that we have the power within us to defeat the enemy! So get that big gun off the shelf and use it to blow the devil out of your house and your affairs. God will be watching your back. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12
