“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
How has the Holy Spirit changed my life? I used to be very shy and introverted, especially around people I didn’t know. Even when we sang together as a family, I’d freeze up when it was my turn to introduce a song. I was good with singing, but not speaking.
When I was in high school, I failed speech class because I refused to get up in front of the class and speak. I was fine with the written part, but the speaking, not so much. But when the Holy Spirit came on me at the age of 17, He changed my confidence from mine, to His. I was so aware of the fact that my space was no longer just mine, but infused with the very Spirit of God.
God knew we needed help, that’s why He sent the Holy Spirit. He knew we could never live a victorious life alone, or be His witnesses or do what He asks of us. When we surrender to allow Him habitation, He is eternally strong in us, making it possible for us to do impossible things and Him to get all the glory.
So what are you waiting for? Be the witness of His miracles. Be the witness of how He changed your life forever. Don’t keep it to yourself! There’s a whole world out there that needs to hear the good news. There’s a whole world that needs to be healed though you, set free through you. You are all He has to work with to do the amazing work in the earth.
Father, I will be whatever You need me to be today. May I not miss opportunities to share this joy, peace and strength with a sad, anxious and weak people. I will tell of Your life-changing plan for all mankind. I love You Lord! It’s in Jesus’ name, Amen.
