How to be a Holy Spirit “Power Conductor”

Image of waterfall with text, "God's power is flowing through you"Are you hungry to know the power of God flowing through your life?
Perhaps you are facing a situation or need right now, in which you are seeking God‘s intervention.
It may be healing, freedom, or a release of provision.

Today, know that God has created and designed you to be a “power conductor” for the Holy Spirit—a vessel through whom His power can flow.

And His power is available to you right now.

A Prophetic Dream About the Power of God

Twenty years ago, my husband and I were about to move permanently, with our children, from New Zealand to Australia. And just before our departure, I had an unusual dream.

I was standing in front of a table, and on it was a large book.
It was a huge scientific manual on the topic of electricity!

Then, I flipped the book over, so that it was both reversed and upside down.
Now, the same book was the Bible. And I knew that what I was about to learn, was the key to the huge manual on the other side—with all of its scientific knowledge about power.

A single reference stood out—it was John 15:5.

The Dream Resurfaces

The years passed—twenty years—and I forgot about the dream. Until, in the midst of a difficult week, I was struggling to complete a blog post.
Finally, the last word was in place when suddenly, I remembered that dream from a long time ago!
And I turned to find Jesus’ words:
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5, NLT)

What follows are the words I wrote—this week—before I remembered the dream.

A Key to the Flow of Electrical Power

What does it take to be a power conductor?
Power in the form of electricity can be present—it can reside somewhere—but in order to flow, it needs a conduit.
A conductor.

An electrical conductor is a substance or material that allows electricity to flow through it.
And while most metals (like copper) are known to be good conductors of electrons—nonmetals are considered bad conductors! [2]

Likewise, God uses sensitive, believing hearts, to be conduits of His power and those who have faith—who are willing to be moved by his Spirit and His Word.

  • God also uses our hunger for Him, because hunger produces motion

Power Flowed from Jesus

For example, think about the woman who makes her way through a crowd, to touch Jesus’ robe (Luke chapter 8).
As she touches the hem of Jesus’ garment, she is miraculously healed.

At that moment, Jesus is aware that power has been released from Him. So, He asks, “Who touched Me?”

He is in the middle of a jostling crowd, so Peter says, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” But Jesus says: “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” (See Luke 8:45-46)

“Someone Touched Me”

Recently, I read this, and it struck me, that we often sing that song,

“He touched me, oh, He touched me, and oh, the joy that floods my soul. Something happened and now I know, He touched me and made me whole”. [1]

And yet here, Jesus is asking, “Who touched ME?”

Today, hear the calling and wooing of the Holy Spirit: “It’s time to press in!”
Be like the woman who pressed through the crowd—who saw what an encounter with Jesus could do for her.
Just one touch of Jesus’ robe released her miracle healing.

That day, many people crowded around Jesus, bumping into each other, and touching Him. But one woman was a conductor for the power of God.

How to Live as a Power Conductor

God’s power is available and plentiful—because where the Holy Spirit is, there is the power of God.
The power is the working of a Person!

In the book of Acts, Peter reports: “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and…he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.” (Acts 10:38)

When we realize that power comes from a Person, it shifts our priorities!

  • Now, we want to learn how the Spirit moves, and hear what He communicates
  • And to live in such a way that we are compatible with Him

It also takes the pressure off us. Because now we know that God‘s power is not reliant upon us, it is sourced in the Holy Spirit.
It is based on our relationship with Jesus and upon His Word

God’s Power is Displayed in Your Weakness

When I remembered the dream, the Lord drew me back to Jesus’ words:
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5, NLT)

And perhaps today, you need to hear the message I received.
“Beloved, do you think that you need to be strong to be a vessel for My power?
You only need one thing, and that is to be reliant upon Me.
For My power is best displayed in weakness” (2 Cor 12:9).

Today, you can experience the power of God in your life.
And you can be a conduit of God’s power; someone through whom the Holy Spirit moves to touch others.

So, let’s declare together:
“I am pressing in. I am touching Jesus as I have never touched him before!
And His power is flowing through me.”

      1. May it be so… Allow me to ask Helen Calder. First I love reading your blog, always blessed by you. To the question, the god called Jah, worshiped by rastafarians, and the god of halleluyah/ hallelujah (praise yah/jah)…… is this the same one as the creator? Or is it a different god?

  1. I definitely want to take your latest course! As I read this today I knew the Holy Spirit was directing me to do this and I am excited.


    1. amen to that!
      And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Cor 12:9, NKJV)

  3. The Timing Of The Holy Spirit Is Perfection, As Always 🙂
    One month ago, He Placed a vision in my head, one of a ministry which married creativity and Spiritual communion (aka hanging out With Holy Spirit), nurturing both artists and “people like us” (I didn’t even realise that was called prophecy, for I’d not even heard the word used in that sense during my 44 years on this earth… But then, I was raised in Southern Baptist (and Egyptian Protestant) churches, lol. I’m fascinated by the various ways we faithful live and live out our faith In Him, and how similar–and different–two journeys With The Same Spirit can appear. And if I’d never heard “prophecy” thusly used, you can be sure I’d never heard of “prophetic worship,” but…! Holy Spirit Told me to google that very phrase not a fortnight ago, and I was even more fascinated by the thought of it. Because (as you can guess by my tone 🙂 that heretofore-unfamiliar term is a perfect description of my life these past ten years. Everything in my life was being blocked–my teaching career, my desire for a business and a husband and to just…be able to create and get out of my system all the beautiful thoughts and feelings He Put Into my heart (and Inspired me to feel 🙂 But my health was blocked, too. And so was my vision, for my weak eyes couldn’t even tell that it wasn’t spiritual attack, but Spiritual Training. Ten years of not even knowing that I was being prepared, and another five of running from His Call on my life. (Which is His, of course 🙂 “But Lord… You REALLY Want me to leave my uni job to focus on writing music? Even though my lungs are messed up and my nose makes obnoxious clicking sounds when I record vocals and I’m losing my hearing? HOW??” I didn’t NOT want to do it–music hath been my true obsession since I was four, after all. But even after a head injury rendered me unable to play by ear (back in college)–when I played no less than twelve instruments with that gift (and haven’t been able to since then), the loser devil’s slings and fiery arrows are less-than-stubble, chaff, or even halitosis to me when I sing the songs He Had me write. Sometimes I forget to pray and cast out a demonic presence. (I first thought it was the head injury, but finally realised it’s just that I’m pretty slow on the uptake, usually, lol. And right now, still intoxicated by a conversation Holy Spirit just Gifted me with a sec ago, I am both sluggish and energised enough to have taken three pages to say what I’d originally meant to convey in this comment, which is that I’m beyond grateful for His Leading me to this post of yours, dear sister, for it’s not only confirmation but inspiration to me as I prepare to step into the Calling I’ve been running from for five years. If only because “You want me to have FUN all day instead of work (even though I loved teaching and miss it greatly. I also miss having a paycheck, lol. But God Is SO KIND!)??” It felt as though the entire latter half of this post was written expressly for my situation; I’ve felt my classroom ministry was ending, or slipping away, anyway, since 2012. And my creative output’s been off the charts…positively correlated to how frequently I get to spend hours in silence With Him. Now I don’t think I could bring myself to go back to teaching full-time, and my desire for a husband and children is… well, still there, kind of, but so diminished that I feel vexed even imagining that someone might snap me out of communion With Him, lol. (Let Thy Will Be Done in all things, LORD, though! And methinks I would really, really, REALLY love to spend all my time serving Him and supporting His people. And reaching the lost. And serving as a translator to those precious lost, especially those who resist His Call out of Santa Claus “Saviour” Syndrome. And providing practical… pragmatism?? and extra love to those demographics that slip through the cracks of so many mainstream ministries. (ie suicidal gamers with ADHD who frequent Christian bookstores but deny it to their bros. (and even more niche co-cultures God Keeps Sending my way <3
    Akh! Anyway, I pray continued blessing, protection, provision, platform, and PROPHECY 🙂 to you and yours, sister Helen. I also pray for and draw comfort from your words about new ministries and dripping in Holy Spiritness–both for myself and for everyone He's Called. I'd be honoured if you pray that I am able to sit still long enough to Hear His Lovely, Loving Voice Telling me that this is the way that I should walk in–no matter WHAT it is (starbucks barista for Christ? Sure! Chair-setter-upper in a new church? SURE!) and no matter how unqualified I am (in the natural, anyway)… coz that's just what He's Looking for, hehe. Anyway! We should also pray that I'm able to sleep for even a little after the Spiritual high of such an eventful day (let's just say that after ten years of no movement, everything's happening at once (well, a direct command, anyway. I still have no idea what's going on, but I'm supposed to attend a particular church on Sunday and meet with a particular pair tomorrow. Maybe they'll take the list of visions He's Given me this month and take it to the streets? I busted my knee and can't walk very well, but they can! And their voices are louder than mine, all the better to allow others to hear them. Though…He Could Always just Fix me, if He So Chose. Aggh, it's all so exciting! Anyway, hehe. I think I'm going to binge-read your entire blog after a little nap. Thank you, dear, dear, sister for speaking His Words (and NOT running from your calling, unlike the Sally of yesterday :)… May God Reward you richly for your courage (and may He give me some courage, too. I just started to chicken out for a sec, hehe. But no. "Be strong and very courageous!"
    And I will. (Though I don't want to stop writing, because I feel Holy Spirit most keenly here! lol. Though I feel Him Stirring Within me, too, so Yay For His OmniPresence, hehe 🙂 Love In HIM <3, sally b.

    1. Hi Sally, thank you for sharing your story. one of the themes of the story of the woman who touched Jesus’ robe is the power of courage!

      1. Hi Helen that’s something I have been praying about Holy Spirit. I ask God to teach me how to flow in Holy Spirit, and as I minister to others, some calls me,and give me confirmation, I don’t look for confirmation, but they calls me and tells me what I have spoken to them it came to pass… and then I say it’s not me it’s God brought it to pass,And that lets me kno it’s not me speaking it’s Holy Spirit speaking.. I thank God for his Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth and Holy Spirit in Jesus Name Amen..God bless you Prophetess Helen, for all your encouraging words..In Jesus Christ Name Amen..

  4. Thank you for the message.The message has encouraged me to know Iam a vessel of GOD.Without Jesus I Can do nothing,Holy Spirit I need you,it’s my desire to be Your Power Conductor.I surrender to you Holy Spirit in Jesus Name.
    Thank you Helen and GOD Bless you in Jesus Name.
