Acts 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
THOUGHT: Jesus said that they should wait for the promise of the Father, which was to fill them with His Holy Spirit. Just like the disciples, you receive the Spirit’s Indwelling the moment you accept Jesus Christ as Savior. You receive the Spirit’s Infilling when you are obedient and when you ask for Him (See Acts 5:32 & Luke 11:13). The infilling gives you power to live a Godly life and power to open your mouth to tell others what Christ has done for you.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I sincerely believe in You, and in Your saving power. Please forgive me of my sins. I accept Your gift of Salvation. However, my life is up and down and right now and I do not represent You as I should. I need this Infilling of Your Spirit to give me the power to live a Godly life every day. I also need Your power to witness, in speaking clearly and boldly about what You have done for me. Because Your Word says this gift is for me, I receive it today, by faith, as I pray this prayer. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!
