Intro:  What is your favorite activity to do outside ?


  1. Isaiah 48:16, Acts 1:8 God has called us to live a life empowered by the Holy Spirit so that we can reach the lost, be victorious, and able to accomplish His purposes here in this world.
    1. Mathew 19:26 The Holy Spirit will empower us to accomplish that which seems impossible for us to do in our own strength.
      1. Col 1:29 Many Christians think that they have to accomplish everything in their own ability, not realizing that the Holy Spirit wants to anoint them to accomplish what they cannot do themselves.
      2. 1 Cor 15:57 God will call us to overcome that which we cannot overcome in our own strength. We will be victorious only through His strength and His power being active in our lives.
    2. Zech 4:6 God will also anoint us to do things we cannot do in our own strength. He does      this so that we remain humble, so that we know it is by His power, rather than by our  abilities, and so we trust in Him to come through for us in whatever situation we may face!
  2. Acts 5:32, Luke 24:49  When we truly surrender to Jesus, allow Him to work in us, and obey His voice, then the Holy Spirit will empower us with supernatural strength and ability.
    1. Isaiah 7:9 When we obey God, the Holy Spirit will empower us to stand firm, to overcome sin and temptations, and to overcome every fear that wants to stop us.
      1. Luke 10:19  When we yield to the Holy Spirit, and remain pure before Him, He will also empower us to evangelize, fulfill our purpose and at times even do the miraculous.
      2. 1 Cor 12:8-11 The Holy Spirit will also empower us with His gifts so that we are prepared for every situation that we will face in this life!
    2. Psalms 71:16  In this new series we will look at everyone of the areas where the Holy Spirit will empower us to have victory and to accomplish that which we cannot do in our own strength! #Empowered!



  1. Why do so many Christians try to do everything in their own strength rather than allow God to empower them with the Holy Spirit?
  2. Why do you think it is absolutely essential for us to remain pure, and obey God in order for God to empower us with the Holy Spirit so that we can accomplish the impossible?
  3. Who can share a testimony of a time when you personally felt the Holy Spirit empower you to do something you could not do in your own abilities?
  4. Why is it completely necessary for us to be empowered and anointed by the Holy Spirit in order to be victorious and able to accomplish Gods will for our lives?


End: Pray for those who want to live a life empowered by the Holy Spirit so that they can be victorious and able to accomplish His purposes in this world. Pray for those who want to rededicate their lives to Christ, then take requests.
