Imparting life to the nations, one person at a time

August 7: The Spirit of Light

“But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into Heaven, and saw the glory of God…and said, Behold I see the Heavens opened…” – Acts 7: 55, 56


Read: Isaiah 11:1-3; John 16: 7, 13-15; I John 2: 20, 27


Our human spirits are God’s flashlights through which He illuminates every part of our lives (Proverbs 20:27). When we are plugged into the Holy Spirit, we have access to all the illumination of the Godhead. When we are loosely connected to Him, we run for a while on short-life batteries and our lights dim until we run out of His Divine energy.  In order to be endued with power, we need to have a healthy on-going relationship with the Power Source. When we seek to know God’s heart and please Him in all that we do, the Holy Spirit has a greater liberty to accomplish His purposes in our lives. Jesus was clothed with the power of the Holy Spirit while on earth (Acts 10:38), and by that special unction, He did great exploits. One dimension of that unction was the Holy Spirit resting upon Him and filling Him with wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel and revelation. We cannot succeed in life without that same unction resting upon us. When we devote ourselves to intimate and consistent fellowship with the Holy Spirit, He releases His grace into our lives and that unction flows endlessly. Do you long for a greater dimension of His presence in your life? Then tell Him so. Ask him to come and reveal Himself to you. Tell Him you’ll hold nothing back from Him. I see the Heavens opened over you today in Jesus’ Name. Amen
