We all go through seasons when we feel we have the full strength to do life as well as those when we do not feel as strong as we would like to be. That is the very reason why Jesus urged His followers to tarry in Jerusalem until they had received the Holy Spirit and were endowed with His power. It is very clear that after this encounter, His followers were different. Men like Peter who had denied knowledge of Jesus after His arrest were able to boldly and publicly preach about Jesus Christ with thousands of people giving their lives to the Lord. Our lives will also be changed continually as we rely on the Holy Spirit to strengthen us.
SCRIPTURE READING: Acts 1: 8 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.”
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving me the Holy Spirit as my strengthener. May His strength flow in my life in Jesus Name, Amen.
