Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high. – Luke 24:49
The disciples waited until they received this promise, not really knowing what this power from on high would look like. In obedience, they waited, worshipping and trusting His promise would come to pass. When it did, on Pentecost, its reality was undeniable and its results phenomenal. This baptism of the Holy Spirit exceeded their expectations and does the same in our lives.
Unlike the disciples, we do not have to wait for it; we wait on it, as we appropriate it by faith. The Holy Spirit works with us to become a christian, comes to dwell in us upon conversion, and then comes upon us to empower us for service. It’s a gift available to whosoever believes.
Like the disciples, we are not sure what the power of God looks like in our lives, but it shouldn’t matter. We should desire whatever comes from Him. No questions asked, pre-conceived ideas, or unbelief. If you haven’t yet, pray, believe and receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. If you have, pray for His continual infilling and outflowing in your life, from glory to glory!
