Be empowered…..again?

Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

As we approach Shavuot this Sunday night, we're looking at the promise given 2000 years ago: that normal people will lead extraordinary lives; that disciples, who were terrified on the night of Yeshua's (Jesus) death, were transformed into bold saints of God; and that fishermen, tax collectors, and housewives – normal everyday people – became empowered, and turned the Roman Empire inside out and upside down!

In Acts 2, we read about the initial outpouring of the Spirit during Shavuot. Just a few chapters later the same saints who had been once filled to overflowing, sought to be refilled again [Acts 4]. It was not a one time experience, but rather a constant refilling of the Spirit which they needed to change their world. They repeatedly sought to be empowered to accomplish whatever task God assigned to them. They just kept going back, to the well that never runs dry, and so they kept getting filled – and refilled — and refilled again!

Don't ever become spiritually "satisfied"! Seek to be filled — once filled — seek to be refilled! And refilled again! How do we live in a constant state of revival? By always seeking MORE! In doing so, God will empower everyday folk like us to turn our world inside out and upside down!

    There is so very much going on in today's world … all of which seems intent on draining believer's "spirits". Thus, it is so very important that we are reminded that it is not our own "spirits" but HIS that keeps us moving forward, enabling us to accomplish His will and allowing us to SEE HIS salvation in the midst of the craziness in the world in which we live.

    This morning, as sometimes happens, I was "drawn" to this web-site. I truly did need to be reminded of the word "again!" Thank G-d for His faithfulness and thank you for being led by His Spirit in regards to timely devotionals.
