Psalm 55:22
‘Give your burdens to the LORD, and He will take care of you.’

Names of God make out the shape of a dove
Names of God make out the shape of a dove

As with many of things that God does, it began with words.  It began with words of prophecy.

Joel 2:28-32 I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Many years before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, it was foretold or prophesied.  Just as God, in the beginning, said, LET THERE BE LIGHT and there was light, so God said there would be an outpouring of His Holy Spirit and it happened at Pentecost.  God always does what He says He will do.  You can have confidence in this. He will do what He said He will do, even in those things that you trust Him for.  God keeps His promises.
