“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him…” – Colossians 2:9,10
When the Spirit of God moves upon His people (His Church), encounters such as at Pentecost in Acts 2 take place—gifts begin to flow and demonstrations of His power and presence are released. While we love and embrace all the manifestations, the essence of revival is when the Holy Spirit touches the human spirit to awaken us back to our first love. Revival is when the fire of His love consumes us and we love Him back with that same love. Revival is relational…it is personal!
Take these action steps, so that you may be filled afresh with the Holy Spirit. Cleanse your heart and mind and walk in greater depths of your identity in Christ!
• Ask yourself: Is there anything in my life that is quenching the Holy Spirit?
• Ask yourself: Is there anything in my life that is grieving the Holy Spirit?
• Ask the Holy Spirit to forgive you of sins you may have committed.
• Ask Holy Spirit to renew your mind.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you and empower you to walk as Christ did and to walk in greater authority!
1 Corinthians 15:4,6 – “And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once.”
BEFORE YOU CAN RECEIVE THE FIRE OF THE SPIRIT, YOU MUST WANT IT. PERHAPS THAT IS WHY ONLY 120 APPEARED OUT OF 500 BRETHREN IN THE UPPER ROOM.
Matthew 5:6 – “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.”
“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find REST IN THE SHADOW of the Almighty.” – Psalm 91:1
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I fear no evil, for You are with me.” – Psalm 23:4
It’s not about death’s shadow. It’s about God Who is OVERSHADOWING us. Wherever we go and whatever we do, God is there. We find protection under His SHADOW.
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose THOUGHTS ARE FIXED ON YOU.” – Isaiah 26:3
If we constantly look at how bad a situation is, peace will elude us. If we always wonder. “What are we going to do?” or “How are we going to make it?” fear will grip our hearts.
Peace comes when the eyes of our heart are FIXED ON JESUS – – the Author and Finisher of our faith. No matter what happens in the world, we can live without fear. We can enjoy life for we have been given a spirit of love, power, and a sound mind.
