Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
The disciples prayed and they waited in the days after Jesus departed. There was no other alternative for them—no way could they go back to life the way it had been before Christ.
Their prayers and their waiting reaped for them a marvelous reward in the person of the Holy Spirit.
Their lives had been changed by walking with Jesus and hearing His teachings, but now they were also changed by the infilling of the Spirit who was poured out on that Pentecost morning.
Do you hunger and thirst for more in your life? The Holy Spirit wants to anoint you with His power.
He longs to give you victory over the trials and circumstances in your life that beset you. Above all, He longs to have intimate fellowship with you.
So today, in this season of Pentecost, open up your heart and ask the Holy Spirit to inundate you with His presence. Fellowship with Him. Allow Him to guide you in all you do. Commune with Him daily—He will never leave you nor forsake you.
