Scripture: Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witness in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth
Observation: I have witnessed the power of the Holy Spirit in my life. When the Holy Spirit came on me when I gave my life to Christ changes happened almost immediately. I use to swear constantly and now I can’t even utter a curse word. Certain things touch my heart and I break out in tears, If I hear the Lord’s name used in vain it hurts my heart. I look at things differently I see children, the homeless and elderly in a different light and my heart goes out to them. He gave me peace in my spirit that the man I was, whom I hated now I wouldn’t want to be anyone else.
Application: I need to allow the Holy Spirit to take charge of my life. To ask for a filling of the Holy Spirit and be silent and allow him to guide me through this life each day.
Prayer: Dear Lord fill me with the Holy Spirit and take charge of this servant of yours. Open my eyes to see the direction you desire for me and show me how to fulfill the purpose you have created me for.
