God was with Him
What was the secret to Jesus’ ministry on earth?
God was not doing things for Jesus or in His ministry,
… just because of who He was,
but because Jesus was walking with Him,
…God could do things in Jesus’ life.
What God did in Jesus’ life,
… was not because God promised to do it,
but because Jesus was where God sent Him,
… Jesus was doing what God told Him to do.
And, because Jesus was abiding in the Father,
… what the Father did was evident in Jesus’ life.
Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you,
the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do;
for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.
The same applies in our lives.
If things are not happening as they should,
… it is probably because God is not there,
… to do what He promised to do.
But how then does this work in our lives?
Simply by doing what Jesus said to do …
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,
you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
And what happened in Jesus’ life will happen in our lives …
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit
and with power, who went about doing good and healing all
who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
