Scriptures For Meditation — Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17; Is 44:3-4; Phil 4:13
“I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose–I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]”
Php 4:13 Amplified
As we continue to mark Pentecost this week, we have another opportunity to:
• Be reminded of, and to celebrate the essence of who we are as Christians, and also
• the fulfilment of the promise that God made concerning the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Down Payment – (Acts 1:4;8)
This promise was spoken first in the OT through Prophets Joel and Isaiah in Joel 2:28 and Isa 44:3-4; and then reiterated by Peter on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2:17.
Yesterday, we meditated on the promise that God gave to us in sending the Holy Spirit to empower us to fulfill His assignment for our lives.
We also saw that this empowerment that would be invested upon us through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is expressed and is manifest in different miraculous acts in the life of the believer.
The question however is, if there was already an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, should we still expect another outpouring in our day and age?
Well, what we can definitely pray for and expect, is a Refuelling or an overflow. Because,
Whenever there’s an OVERFLOW of the Spirit, the gifts and miracles always manifest.
We struggle through life trying to “work things out” in our own power and wisdom; we get battered and discouraged by the unending challenges that life throws at us, and we ultimately settle for a defeated life that is devoid of the power of the Holy Spirit.
Many believers have unwittingly gotten to a place in our walk with God where we have run dry of the presence of the Holy Spirit, as we have relegated Him to the back of the queue, failing to give Him any room to really occupy and direct our lives as He should!
But dear friend, I am persuaded and believe God for better things concerning you — The promise of the Father is still available for you to claim even now; the overflow of the Holy Spirit in your life will produce the miracle that you have been crying out to God for, if you would receive it and allow Him to fill your life and overflow from you.
Cry out to God for an OVERFLOW of His Spirit.
Pray For The Activation, Stirring Up and an OVERFLOW of His Spirit on your life, in your ministry, over your household.
Pray for an overflow of God’s presence and power into every area of your life and on the church.
Pray for the activation and release of the gifts of the Holy Spirit that you need to fulfil God’s assignment for your life.
