TOPIC: Be Filled with the Spirit
SCRIPTURE: And the disciples were continually filled [throughout their souls] with joy and the Holy Spirit. — Acts 13:52 (AMPC)
MESSAGE: Did you know we can actually sense the Holy Spirit in us if we pay attention? His presence releases energy, ability, power, and peace like nothing else (see Acts 1:8), and being filled with the Holy Spirit is deeply important to me.
Over the years, I’ve discovered that there are a few things I can do on purpose that help cultivate His presence:
- Think good and godly thoughts because we feed on what we think (see Philippians 4:8).
- Speak positive things that release hope and joy (see Proverbs 18:21).
- Let the Word of God fill my mind. As I meditate on various scriptures, I find the energy of the Holy Spirit being released in my soul (see Ephesians 5:18–19).
- When I think about things I can do for other people to bless or help them, I always sense God’s power and enthusiasm (see Acts 10:38).
If you’ll give these a try, I believe you’ll be amazed at the difference they make in your life.
PRAYER STARTER: Father, I want to always be filled with Your Spirit, so please give me the grace to form habits that will help me cultivate Your presence in my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
