“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”
Luke 24:49 NLT
God’s love for us is so high that he sent his power from on high to live inside his believers.
Power to bear all the fruit of the spirit from Galatians 5:
Power to love when others are unlovely.
Power to still have deep abiding joy in the midst of great sorrow.
Power to know peace that passes this world’s understanding when tragedy strikes.
Power to patienly endure when you want to give up and quit.
Power to be kind and tenderly care for those around you.
Power to do good things for others who could use a glimpse of the Father’s care.
Power to faithfully keep your word and vows when you want to forget you said them.
Power to answer gently when you want the people in Timbuktu to hear you let that deserving person have it.
Power to keep your self-control by this life giving Spirit when you want to give in to that big huge ice cream sundae, with nuts.
Through your ability to act according to God’s perfect, pleasing will for your life in these everyday, ordinary situations, you will have a testimony. You will be able to tell others about how Jesus helps you everyday, and how He can help them, too.
Will you always get it right? No. But then you will have the testimony about a grace-filled God who forgives you time and again.
And you will remember the last time you chose to walk in the Spirit and the blessings of obedience that flowed from it!
Walk in his high and powerful love today!
