Daily Bible Verse:              2 Peter 2:9       (NLT)

‘So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials…’

- The most important thing for us to remember is the fact that the Lord knows!
- Not only does He know what we face, but He also has the power to rescue us.
- Trials are a reality, but so too is His knowledge and power to deliver.
- So believe in your faithful Lord and in His unlimited power to save.

Prayer: Lord, today I recognise that You are with me. This knowledge gives me the power to be able to trust You and to know that Your knowledge also means Your power is active in my situation. Amen.

THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES US DIFFERENT

October 26, 2020

THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Acts 6:15 ‘All who were sitting in the Sanhedrin looked intently at Stephen, and they saw that his face was like the face of an angel.’
There was something completely different about Stephen.
It seems as if he had a ‘divine radiance’.
The scripture tells us that his face was like that of an angel and his accusers could not take their eyes off of him.
It says that the people in the council noticed something different and they ‘fixed their eyes on him’, ‘they looked steadfastly at him’, ‘they looked intently at him’ and ‘they stared at him’.
The council was angry but yet they were noticing something different about this man Stephen.
The truth is that when we are full of the Holy Spirit something about us changes.
It seems like his face was glowing in some way.
It reminds us of Moses when he came down from the mountain and from being in the presence of God.
Exodus 34:29 ‘When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hand, he did not know that the skin of his face was shining [with a unique radiance] because he had been speaking with God.’
It is time we begin to see more of this strange and wonderful phenomenon.
The key is the Holy Spirit Who makes the connection with God a reality.

AN OPEN HEAVEN

Acts 7:55-56 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. "Look," he said, "I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God."
Here we see how Stephen sees ‘heaven open’.
He has a revelation of heaven.
An open heaven represents a direct connection between heaven and earth.
The bottom line is that in these unique moments God becomes more real.
We all desire that God would be more real.
It all starts as we are full of the Holy Spirit.
Let us pursue His Holy Spirit in our daily lives.
Let us hunger and thirst for more of His Holy Spirit.
