Receive the Power

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (NIV)

We can easily think that we need to handle life on our own and figure out all of life’s challenges without asking for help. But God provided the Holy Spirit to help us. By connecting with the Holy Spirit, we can access the power of God to overcome anything that comes our way. The Holy Spirit can act as our counselor (John 14:26) and intervenes for us (Romans 8:26-27).

God, thank you for making the power of the Holy Spirit available to me. I ask for the power of the Holy Spirit in my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
