“Come Holy Spirit!” May the presence of God be poured out across America and the nations. Especially in these days of pandemic, political uncertainty, terror and distress. And in places where it seems God’s voice is being silenced and Christians are being sidelined, ee will not grow weary or be deterred. Instead, we say, “Come Holy Spirit.”
The biblical festival or feast of Pentecost was the time when the Early Church received supernatural power from on high to transform the world. Let us accept God’s invitation to be filled to overflowing with His Spirit. Let us allow the Holy Spirit to embolden us to reach out further with God’s love to a hurting world. We must not be discouraged in our calling even if it seems that our freedoms are being curtailed and what we stand for seems to be increasingly unpopular.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Let us pray “Come Holy Spirit” every day so that we may be filled with boldness to fulfill the Great Commission no matter what. Remember the Early Church thrived despite all the obstacles in their way, not least of which, persecution. Remember God’s promise to pour out His Spirit on all flesh in the Last Days.
Now is the time for God’s people to be activated to move in power. Whatever challenges or problems face you, call upon the Lord to come and take His place in your life. Invite the Holy Spirit to fill you to overflowing. Fan into flames the gift God has given you! “Come Holy Spirit!”
This is not a time for the Body of Christ to sit back quietly, this is the time for Spiritfilled men and women of God to rise up in the power of God and be the salt and light that society so needs. Jesus gave us the promise that He would build His Church and that the gates of Hell will not prevail against it.
No matter what plans the enemy has to trap us, seduce us or discredit us, we put our faith in God and His faithfulness. He is the faithful one. The friend who never leaves us nor forsakes us. He is the author and perfector of our faith. What He has started in us, He will complete. We cannot accomplish anything in our own strength but through Him, all things are possible.
Yes we know, in this world we will have tribulation but we can be of good cheer for Jesus has overcome the world. Let us be filled with the presence of God. May the peace of God descend upon us like a dove. “Come Holy Spirit”, fill us to overflowing and empower us to fulfill our divine calling. Just as the Spirit of God descended on Jesus, let the Holy Spirit descend on us, that we may ultimately hear the words, “Well done My Good and faithful servant, in you I am well pleased.”
