Before you do anything else today, take a minute (okay, 4 minutes and 33 seconds) and listen to this song:
Now I want you to take another minute (just one this time!) and think about how often you invite the Holy Spirit to fill you up.
Often, we treat inviting the Holy Spirit in as a one time thing. When we ask for salvation He does come and live within us, but remember what our core value for the month is: Without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we can accomplish nothing. Just because we have made a little room in our hearts for God does not mean that He is empowering everything we do.
Often, when we invite God in, we want Him to be that quiet tenant with a private entrance who comes and goes so silently you can’t tell when He’s home and when He’s gone. And God will let us get away with that. He won’t force His presence on us if we don’t want it. But if we ask for it, there are no limits to what He can do through us.
So go ahead, let the Holy Spirit know He’s welcome in your life. Then go see what you can accomplish together.
