December 10 | OUTPOURING
This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing. Acts 2:32-33
Like Jesus, don’t you want to receive the promise of the Spirit, to walk in His fulness and be overflowing by the outpouring of His presence? But are we willing to suffer and die, to “experience” His outpouring, overflowing anointing? Yes, by God’s grace – we are crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who live, Christ lives in us…!
We are all faced with the daily, moment by moment challenges. A big one is to choose to walk in death to ourselves in every manner of heart and life that opposes Biblical Truth. Everything about “the way we want to live our lives, have our way and fulfill our wants” are trivial, earthly, sinful, even demonic at times.
Is there an area in your life that is draining you? Process this area with God. There may be a conflict of interest and God wants to “drain our old way of life” to pour out in our hearts, a new way of living.
Let’s thank Jesus for being raised to be at the right hand of our Father, receiving His outpouring! And now, let’s ask God for the outpouring of the Spirit in our lives!
