While they were praying, the place where they were meeting trembled and shook. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak God’s Word with fearless confidence”. Acts 4:31 (MSG)
The Word of God is near to each of us—He longs to speak to us personally and individually, to share Spirit to spirit and heart to heart so that we can be encouraged, strengthened, and made whole. We are changed as we come into a greater awareness of Who He is, becoming more like Him, and coming fully alive into all He created us to be! He longs to speak His word through us as well, so that others may be empowered, lifted up, and come into a greater freedom in Christ than they have ever known before.
You may feel inadequate right now, in those places seldom shown to others, where you are not always sure of who you are. You may wonder what you have to offer or what you could possibly say. Here is the key, dear heart, for all of that—pray!!
Whatever is empty in you, Holy Spirit will powerfully fill. Whatever is lacking, He will abundantly supply. You are a beautiful vessel, chosen by God. You were formed and fashioned in love—a vessel well fit for the Master’s use.
If you are running low on love—the One Who is love will fill you to overflow. If you need wisdom, ideas, confidence, caring—He is your all in all! He is not expecting you to do any of this on your own. Only yield and surrender to the Holy Spirit. Bring Him the vessel that is your life, just as it is, and allow Him to give to you all that you need.
Rivers of life, pure, and powerful, will flow from the heart of God, to, and through you, in the most life changing, world re-arranging ways!
I confess Lord that there are parts of my life that need re-arranging today! Areas that I tried to make work that didn’t turn out as hoped. Things I missed and things I messed up.
Come today Holy Spirit I pray. Shake what needs to be shaken in my life. Change and re-arrange until everything looks like You desire it to look. Until everything looks like You!
In the beautiful Name of our Saviour and Lord, Jesus, our Glorious King!
