Receiving the Power of the Spirit

(PART 1)

Examples of power and transformation by the Holy Spirit abound in both Old and New Testaments. God has operated in marvelous ways since the beginning of time.


READ:
Gen. 9:12-17; Ex. 4:1-12; 1 Sam. 17:45-47; Dan. 7:13-27; Acts 7:55-56; Acts 16:25-34.
HEART ISSUE:
How is God speaking to your heart? What demonstrations of power does He want to accomplish through you?
PRAYER FOCUS:
Father, how mighty You are! Draw our hearts closer to Yours by Your Spirit so that all You desire may come to pass. Amen.

(PART 2)

The purpose of our existence involves truly surrendering our will to the Spirit's work. Our surrender enables God's will to be done both in and through us.


READ:
Rom. 12:1-2; 2 Cor. 10:4-5; Gal. 1:10-12; Col. 3:1-4; 2 Pet. 1:3-4; Rev. 2:26.
HEART ISSUE:
Are there strongholds in your mind that need the transforming work of the Spirit? How is God drawing you deeper into His will?
PRAYER FOCUS:
Father, thank You for wanting more for us than we can see. Convict my heart in those places that still need the touch of Your Holy Spirit. Amen.
