“I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” (Luke 24:49)
Knowing He was about to depart, Jesus left His disciples with a final command: stay in Jerusalem, and wait…for the promise.
Of the thousands who had witnessed His miraculous ministry and heard His amazing teaching, and the hundreds that had actually seen Him after the resurrection, we read in Acts that only 120 stayed until the promise arrived. But these 120 were steadfast. They waited the full term…
What would have happened if they had left after the 4th day? Or the 6th day? Or the 9th day? They would have missed the promise and the amazing blessing that came with it. But those 120 believers stayed, they stayed and pressed in until the Holy Spirit came!
Do you want the fullness of the Spirit in your life? Continue pressing in. Wait with relentless faith and patience. Perseverance is often the critical factor in receiving the promises of God. Our Lord will fulfill every good promise in His perfect time.
“He is the wind of heaven that fills our sails with the power to live for God and be witnesses for Him in the world!”
Heavenly Father, I give praises to you this very day for all that you have given me. You always know the exact time to answer my prayers. Thank you for the life I am able to live ever since I met You Jesus. I love You Lord. In Jesus’ name Amen
