“Now when the men of the Sanhedrin (Jewish High Court) saw the CONFIDENCE and BOLDNESS of Peter and John, and grasped the fact that they were UNEDUCATED and UNTRAINED [ordinary] men, they were ASTOUNDED (marveled), and began to recognize that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13)
Holy Spirit was upon John and Peter and they transitioned from ordinary to powerful extraordinary individuals. They changed from “Clark Kent” to “Superman”. How cool is that!
They were untrained and Holy Spirit as He always does taught them all things and empowered them to be awesome in the world. People marveled at their exploits and they said they must have been with Jesus.
I believe Holy Spirit who teaches all things desires to walk with us one on one. To talk with us Face to face and give counsel that bears fruit. He is God on earth and He dwells in and with us. He is our helper, counselor, teacher, comforter…. He is wisdom and understanding. He is counsel and might. He is knowledge and He is godly reverential fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2). He is everything.
Holy Spirit wants us to acknowledge Him in the big and small things of life. He wants to be our ever present help in all things. He wants to lavish us with love and comfort us everyday.
Holy Spirit remained on Jesus and He went about doing good and healing all who came to Him. There is a grace in this age to connect with Holy Spirit in a deep way in order to walk with Him one on one and demonstrate the Kingdom with power. Now is the time. Now is time of grace and favor. Now is the time to unleash the “superpowers” God has put in us through His Spirit to advance the Kingdom. To bring hope to the world. To be a light to world. He is calling His children to be a habitation for Him so that He can manifest His goodness to the world. A tangible display of His unfailing love.
We are powerful and more than conquerors (to prevail completely)
Be encouraged and know that Holy Spirit is going to meet you where you are and He will begin to walk with you and teach you His ways. Enjoy the love adventure with God full of power, joy, love and glory.
Love you precious readers,
