An extended Web walk each Friday through a home called Peggie’s Place!…It began with one old Power Mac and one new cable modem and you had me–and millions like me–connected to an amazing world called the Internet. E-mail flies have flown in and out of my office around the world; Web pages find their way worldwide–and over 15 years and 16 million page views later, it’s phenomenal power unseen but at my fingertips for use night and day.
Power to surf the world is exciting, but there’s another Power we celebrate this coming Sunday which places all earthly powers way beneath His feet. He is the “Unseen Power” behind the 16 million page views! It’s Pentecost Sunday, and we pause to honor the Third Person of the Trinity who comforts us, walks beside us, lives within us, moves upon us and gives us the power to be witnesses of the grace of God around the world!
There’s a world within me where that power’s working today–drawing me to Christ, bringing me comfort in need and developing a “right spirit” within me. He’s working in the world around me too as I see His hand in the lives of family and friends. And His power doesn’t stop there–it works around the world to enlighten hearts and minds, to bring people to the Savior, to demonstrate the power of God, and wonder of wonders, to work through me–and you–to accomplish God’s purposes in our world.
We honor the Holy Spirit this day–and every day–as we thank God for His awesome presence and power in our lives, in our families and in our world. May His power move into areas of need in your life and may you know the blessed Holy Spirit’s presence to be your abiding source of strength, comfort and power this day in YOUR world and the world around you. He’s an awesome “World Power” and He’s WITH you–believe it and have a blessed day!
“But ye shall receive power, after the Holy Spirit is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth (Acts 1:8).”
Prayer: “Lord, Your power in my life is unmistakable. I cannot SEE Your Holy Spirit in visible presence, yet I KNOW He resides within me. It’s His power that prays through me, that draws me to You, that convicts me when I transgress, that comforts me in distress–that reaches out through me to touch my world for You. May Your Holy Spirit never stop working in my life–and in my world! I need Your awesome power this day and every day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
