Luke 1:35(a) “And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you;”
There are different dimensions to the power of God. Today we are going to look at the “Epikaizo” power – the overshadowing power of God. Epikaizo is a realm that is closest to eternity.
When the angel appeared to Mary, he said “the power of the Highest will overshadow you” – this is an example of the Epikaizo power of God. When you realize the impact that this power has, it will be impossible for you to walk in fear. This power has the ability to change a nation and change a city, but it will take a people who says in their heart that they will give their lives no matter what the cost.
Another example is when Moses was on the mountain top, having the audacity to tell God to repent of His anger. The Bible says a few verses later that God turned away from his anger. Moses had to carry something significant on the inside to make God change his mind. This is none else but the Epikaizo power of God.
One of the doorways to the power of God is spending time in the Word daily. The Bible says that the entrance of the Word gives light. The devil is not afraid of our prayers, nor of our anointing. He is afraid when a believer of God carries light, because light expels darkness. And there is nothing that can satisfy like the raw power of God operating in and through you.
Be hungry. Be desperate for this power, and God will overshadow you. You will have the ability to change nations and cities.
