Power is derived from the Greek word – Dunamis, which means “The dynamic ability to effect a change.” When you’re filled with the Holy Spirit, you received the dynamic ability cause changes in life. Don’t live your life complaining, be influential, be effective, you know Jesus said “ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me (Acts 1:8).” Jesus gave us power, it time to activate that power within you through speaking in tongues.
Things can be going wrong, if you cannot change it for everyone else at least change it for yourself in such a way you live above it. The Bible says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out them all (Psalm 34:19)”. You can be an oasis of love in a troubled world, be the light in the dark place. God has distinguished you, he has separated you, you are different; if they tell you everything is going this way , you say count me out, I don’t belong there, say I’m above it, I live above it! Because Christ has raised you, you are seated together with him in the heavenly realms, where you have authority to effect changes in your world.
