But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth”. Acts 1:8 (AMPC)
There may be certain accomplishments in your life that you want to try, feel called to, or deeply desire to do, but you wonder how. In and of your own strength it seems impossible and it may well be! However, remember, redeemed one, who you are, and Who’s you are—for you are a child of the Most High God, Who’s strength and power are always at the ready to work in you—and flow through you, to others, in the most astounding and life-changing ways.
What is in your heart today to do? Perhaps there is that one small step or even that giant leap you so long to take but we afraid too. The truth is, you can never do it on your own, or do it well, at least. Yet if you ask your glorious God, you will receive not only the power to bring it to pass; but the grace, strength, and ability that comes from Him alone.
In other words, His might, ability, ideas, and aptitude, will partner with you, allowing what seemed impossible before, to come to pass! This is your recipe, beloved, for guaranteed success. Don’t worry about the missteps or mess-ups; the tried and failed. There is life and lessons in each of these attempts. Holy Spirit will help you gain perspective, bringing redemption to each area, as only He can do.
Open your heart to His leading and your mind to His learning and begin anew! He is with you now, cherished one, and He does all things well.
Dearest Lord, I come to You today with all the dreams and desires tucked away in my heart, for myself, and for others too.
I often feel so inadequate, unworthy, unqualified, and ill-equipped. But not when I look to You. You are, and have, all the is needed, for all I long for, and all You intend for me to do.
Would you come even now with Your empowering presence? Would You anoint me by Your Spirit to fulfill the dreams You have for me, and to work in such a way, that Your life shines through?
The wonderful thing about that Lord is all the glory belongs to, and goes back to You!
In Jesus precious and holy Name, I pray.
