generously poured;

into the faithful,

those who feared the Lord.

Not troubled by threats,

of mere mortal men;

for they knew their Source,

far greater than them.

The power to heal,

the wisdom to speak;

raise dead back to life,

before masses to preach.

Provided for poor,

came along to teach;

compassion for all,

God’s people to reach.

The same Spirit then,

is with us today;

we need to hear Him,

and choose to obey.

What if we released,

every fear of men;

respect to the Lord,

what might we see then?

Imagine our eyes,

allowed to behold;

many miracles,

that daily unfold…

(Responding to Acts 9)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that the very same power that raised Jesus from the grave, healed lepers, and wooed wicked men and women unto You, is the very same Spirit that dwells in the hearts of all who have invited You in. Forgive us for forgetting that You who live in us, are far greater than anything or anyone that would try to come against us. Teach us how to stand secure in Your strength – fearless before men, yet in absolute awe of You. Help us to have a proper perspective about all situations and circumstances we find ourselves in, and help us to recognize the miracles around us everyday. Let us love and give grace to others as You love and have given grace to us. May our strength to stand in You and our ability to love, even in our own lack, lead others to look to You. Let the lost be found forever in You. Amen.
