And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Acts 2:2
We have all experienced low energy days and I’m wondering what kind of booster do you use to get yourself going? Energy drinks and power-bars are the go-to for many, but they are only a temporary fix. Jesus promised the disciples a one-time power enhancer that would last a lifetime, a.k.a. The Helper.
So, here they were all together in the one place on the day of Pentecost, and they were about to get the greatest power boost ever. We have all felt the force of strong winds and we know what the sound of rushing winds against a window can be like when you’re tucked up in bed. Can you imagine the amplified sound of it bouncing off the walls inside your house? This is God’s power, harnessed through his Spirit and dwelling inside every follower of Christ.
“For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” (v39)
This gift of spiritual power can turn your weakness to strength and your timidness to boldness. It allows you to stand with courage and speak with confidence of God’s love and compassion. This is the second greatest gift you will ever receive.
Do you need a boost of spiritual energy today? Forget long-life batteries, you have got eternal-life power inside. Let it enhance your life right now.
