Power of the Spirit – Luke 4:14
Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.
Yeshua returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.
The previous verses show the Spirit led Yeshua into the desert to be tempted. Yet, here we see what happens after that time. It shows He returned in the power of the Spirit.
When we overcome sin in our lives, we begin to truly walk in the power of the Spirit. This is why the enemy works so hard at bringing temptations our way. He’s scared of us. If he can keep us oppressed in sin, he’ll never have to worry about us being a threat. Yet, the moment we take overcoming sin seriously, he knows we’re a threat.
It’s interesting to note how it says Yeshua returned to “Galilee.” Galilee actually means “circuit” or “circle”. It was a land referred to by the Jews as the “Galilee of the Gentiles” or “circle of sinners.” When you walk in the “circle of sinners” around you, are you walking in the power of the Spirit?
Do you keep falling to sin? It might be the very thing keeping you from walking in the power of the Spirit as Yeshua did.
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
