“Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."
The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 61:5-8; Judges 9:22-10:18; Luke 24:13-53, Proverbs 14:11-12)
Today's main passages:
Then I will ever sing in praise of your name
and fulfill my vows day after day. Psalm 61:8
I am going to send you what my Father has promised;
but stay in the city until you have been clothed with
power from on high. Luke 24:49
Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passages we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him.
The work of Satan is to steal our "God with us" away. He wants you to forget God had been with you, wants you to feel that God is not with you now, then you are not going to have your future because without God with you, you would become a person full of insecurity!
Jesus gave a command to His apostles in today's Luke 24:49, "Don't go anywhere after I have gone. You need to stay and wait until you experience God is with you that you are being clothed with the Holy Spirit!"
Well, they were very obedience and they stayed and waited in the place they had the last supper with Jesus. Wait! Wait! Wait and wait for ten days, the Holy Spirit came, they were being filled and they had received the power they never had before to exercise signs and wonders, to start the Early Church and to change human history.
