How to Unleash Power & Partner With God

Last week I wrote about 14 Work Questions You Need to Answer.

In a comment to this post, Titus asked on two of the 14 questions how can he (1) better unleash the supernatural power of God working through me more than relying upon my natural skills? and (2) partner with heaven on this (project, activity, opportunity, problem)?

Power released

Well Titus, here are my replies…and comments from other readers.

Unleash Supernatural Power

Every believer has within them the potential to release kingdom power in their sphere of influence. The key is to (1) believe you have the right to His power, (2) understand how to use His power, and (3) be willing to release it when He directs you to.

Millions of Christians have been taught to stop at #1 in that salvation is enough, simply a get-out-of-hell-free card. Then do kind works and pray for the rapture.

For the rest of us, understanding how to use the power and being willing to release it at His direction is exactly what Jesus taught in John 14:12, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”

Jesus gave His disciples training in how to properly release heaven’s supernatural power on earth. He will guide you, too. Ask Him (Matthew 7:7, Luke 11:9). Holy Spirit will teach you (John 14:26).

Finally, start slow. That is the first key I teach in my book, Our Unfair Advantage: How to Unleash the Power of Holy Spirit in Your Business where I share a simple 6-step process to become better equipped to hear His voice and progressively build more boldness to step out in faith.

Partner with Heaven

Andy Mason challenged me with this question during his Heaven in Business conference last week in Destin, FL.

Partnering with heaven is simply asking Holy Spirit, “OK, what do you want me to do right now – in this situation?”

Regardless of where you are or the situation you face, partnering with heaven is understanding His will (love, joy, peace, prosperity, healing, etc.), then asking Holy Spirit, “How do you want to move through me now? What can I do to impact this situation for the Kingdom?”

God’s will is not mysterious. The Bible clearly teaches us His will: that all should come to salvation, to overcome the devil’s strongholds on His creation, to free the captive, to heal the sick, to comfort the broken hearted, to rebuild the ruined cities, and so much more.

Therefore, to better partner with heaven, simply look around your environment and see what part of heaven in missing (no pain, no tears, no cancer, no poverty, no anger, etc.). Once Holy Spirit points out something to you, simply ask, “OK, what do you want me to do?”

Then whatever He says, do it (John 2:5) – just like Jesus. He does the work – not you! (John 5:19, 5:30, 15:5)

For at the end of your ability lies a miracle.

    My purpose: I encourage and equip leaders to become the better version of themselves (who God has called them to be).
    My assignment: I demonstrate this by helping them grow their faith as they grow their business.

    I’m confident in this but for awhile I struggled with the how! Your book, Our Unfair Advantage, is one of the resources that has helped me discover the how. I began to see how Holy Spirit was waiting on me to let him lead. He helped me to see that my solution was tied up in my experience. He simply said: Teach what you know an continue to grow. I am a witness that the teacher appears when the student is ready, even when he doesn’t think he’s ready. Partnering with heaven is essential to us actualizing our assignment on earth.

      You are growing in your Spirit-man Jesse. So good to see. Keep seeking His witness thru Holy Sporit. Clarity & breakthrough are close.

  • I fully agree with that we as a christain has given the authority to bring hevaen on earth .it has to be the norm for the christian ..However , when we exersis that authority other forces which are negative world coming to attack you and show up . . If we are not awear of balance between using this authroity and put the other kingdom down ; I mean negative forces we will be victim of it .therefore; i sense if the person is not ready inside / out for this type of miracle it does not happened .
    I think we as a christian we need to have indepth of conviction of Acts 1- Acts 5 chapter
