Acts 1 vs
8》”But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. You will be witnesses to me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.”~《WEB》
BLESSED greetings to you, Cherished one. When Jesus walked with His Disciples, He saw their weaknesses and imperfections in their words, thoughts, and deeds. Even in terms of their faith life, Jesus often wondered how faithless they were towards certain things. In Mark 9:19, Jesus responded that “Unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you?….” He was very much aware of their unbelief, flaws and inadequacy of power and revelation knowledge. He, therefore, foresaw they wouldn’t be able to do the work with this same attitude. *And He brought the solution by orienting them to the Holy Spirit.*
He said to them “I will not leave you orphans or without help or comfort. I will come to you” (John 14:18). And that Comforter is the Holy Spirit (John 14:26). Our focal text unveils Jesus’ last words to His Disciples. He said they would receive power. This means as at that time they hadn’t received that power which would enable them to do the work of the ministry effectively. The word “power” also means ability, efficiency and might. Cherished one, the Holy Spirit comes with power, efficiency and might in you, with you and upon you to carry out the plans of God. *You cannot serve and carry out God’s plans with your fleshy strength, you will quit on the way.*
The Christian life is a high, heavenly and holy calling. Therefore, you need to rely on the heavenly mandate, power and resources to carry on this journey. Are you weary in your Christian journey? Do you feel tired or weak to continue onto more glory? Then you need to call on the power of the Holy Spirit. *His mission is to help us serve God effectively in Christ till the end of this world.* Beloved, with the power of the Holy Spirit upon you, you are sure to carry out the plans of God for your life and the world. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Glorious Father of all Power, Efficiency and Might, I thank You for the power of Your Holy Spirit upon me. You are my all in all Resources to carry out Your plans for my life and the world. I lay before You all my weakness, flaws, imperfections and limitations and rely on Your power, efficiency and might to run the race that’s set before me in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen !
*◇ Enjoy A Fruitful Monday ◇*
_Pray that God’s Spirit would come on upon you with much power, efficiency and might to carry out His plans for your life and the world._
