Thursday (SEPT. 17th)
Acts 2:4, Acts 4:31 “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and
began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. *And
when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled
together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake
the word of God with boldness.”
Did you notice that the same disciples of Jesus who were initially filled with the Spirit in Acts Chapter 2 were again refilled with the Spirit in Acts chapter 4? The Bible refers
to the fact that we are to “be being filled,” i.e., that there is a need for a continual filling, even after the initial baptism of the Spirit. Every time the disciples were filled by the Spirit, they became even more conscious of the work of the Spirit and were empowered and influenced by the Spirit to function supernaturally. Ephesians 5:18 says, and be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit. Apostle Paul was actually urging the Ephesian believers to remain in a state of continual filling by the Spirit instead of
getting drunk on wine. Praying in tongues, worshipping God and studying the Word of God helps us maintain consciousness of the Holy Spirit and causes us to subject ourselves to His influence. The more you charge your spirit, the more you will receive signals from and be aligned with the Spirit of God.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is given freely to every believer who asks for Him by faith in Christ. Ask and receive Him right now if you have not. We also walk with the Holy Spirit by faith; so keep stirring up your faith and following the leading of the Spirit. He will enable you to do things that you cannot ordinarily do by your power or might. He will help you to
walk in newness of life. He will help you to die to your flesh and to live holy unto God. He will give you boldness to preach the gospel and manifest signs and wonders through you. The Holy Spirit will help you in your prayers, Rom.8:26-27. He will help you operate in the mind of Christ.
Prayer Focus: Charge your spirit and stir up your faith right now by praying in tongues and worshiping God. Receive a fresh refilling of the Spirit to live supernaturally and to do exploits today.
