A Prayer A Day- 3/21/2015
Are You Plugged In?
Today’s Scripture(s) – Acts 2:38-39
“The Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.”
Why do we see so many powerless Christians? I’ve been reading and I have learned a truth that MANY and I mean many of us do not and have not fully accepted. Let me tell what the Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit is not. The Holy Spirit is not a quickening, the Holy Spirit is not a shaking, the Holy Spirit is not a hopping around, the Holy Spirit is not ‘something’ you feel on Sunday’s in church. The Holy Spirit is God just as the Father is God and the Lord Jesus Christ is God. We are powerless without the ‘Indwelling’ of the Holy Spirit. The Lord Jesus said in Acts 1:8 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Our witness of the Lord Jesus Christ is not complete without the Holy Ghost! Why do I say that? Because without the Holy Ghost we don’t know how to live a right life to the Lord, without the Holy Ghost we ‘try’ to live holy and falter and fail and fall. Without the Holy Ghost we give into temptations and go our own way because we walk in the flesh and not the Spirit. “Christians” need to stop saying they slipped and cussed. “Christians” need to stop saying they slipped and had sex. “Christians” need to stop saying “I’m only human and I need a drink” and all the other stuff that some “Christians” are doing, saying and practicing. The Holy Ghost in you will tell you not to say, such and such. The Holy Ghost in you will tell you not to do, such and such. The Holy Ghost in you will tell you not to go, here or there. If the Holy Ghost is within you He will direct you. If you are not hearing the Holy Ghost speak then you better get before the Lord and ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit and when He fills you with His precious Holy Ghost, you need to start spending time praying in the spirit. When the Lord fills you with His Spirit He gives you a wonderful gift, the gift of tongues. This gift is not just for a special few it is for every believer at the time of receiving the filling of the Holy Spirit you are given the gift of your very own personal power line and that power line is connected right to God the Father through the Lord Jesus Christ. Just as you have the natural language that you speak, your spirit man has a spirit language that he speaks and the plug becomes a live wire with the power of the Holy Ghost. (I will be talking more about this).
Father I thank you for this day and praise you for your great goodness and mercy on our lives. I bless you Father for all that you have done for us and all that you continue to do for us. Father I ask that you would touch the hearts of your people today. Cause us to see you Lord, open our eyes. Cause us to hear you Lord, open our ears. Give us understanding in your word Lord. Guide us Holy Spirit and help us Lord to be determined to walk in ABSOULUTE obedience to your will and to your way for our lives. Lord I give you the praise. Father as you unfold this message of your Holy Spirit, open our hearts to receive and implement it into our spirit man. Father I thank you. Father I praise you. Father I give you all the glory. You are so good. Lord I lift up my brothers and sisters before you today and I ask that you would cover each and every one of them with your precious blood Lord Jesus. Cover them from the top of their heads to the very soles of their feet. Cover them Lord, cloak them Lord and soak them in your precious blood. Protect their lives Lord from the traps and tricks of the enemy. I thank you Father God that no weapon formed against them shall prosper. I thank you Father God that you send your angels to surround each of your children, warrior angels fixed, set and ready to do battle on their behave, cutting down every adversary that would try to rise up against them, in the name of Jesus! I thank you Father God for being their battle axe and their weapons of war. Thank you Father God! I praise you Father God! I worship and adore you and lift you up Father God! Thank you for your shield that surrounds your children today and bless you Father God for being a wall of fire all around them that no evil can penetrate. Blessing and honor and glory and power to you Father, you are so wonderful. You are so great. You are so good and I love you, love you, love you Lord. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
