The Holy Spirit makes all the difference

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

Names of God make out the shape of a dove
It was the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit that made all the difference.

Acts 2:3-4 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

Note a few things:

  • Tongues of Fire came and rested on EACH PERSON.
  • B. They were ALL filled with the Holy Spirit!  The power and anointing of the Spirit, which had rested only upon selected Old Testament individuals called to a particular service, now was available to all believers
  • They were changed!  They went from being fearful to becoming bold.  They went from being anxious to courageous.  They went from being intimidated to becoming intimidating.

It appears as if they actually underwent a personality change.  But what made this possible?  They had spent years with direct contact with Jesus, following Him first hand over a long period of time. Why change now?
It was the POWER and the PRESENCE of the HOLY SPIRIT!  His power can change us.  His presence can change us!  My question is; ‘Has your life been touched and changed by the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit?’
