Theme For The Week: Our main texts for this week are on the Holy Spirit. They accompany the teaching for the week here.
Intro Prayer: “Jesus, please help me in this time to be fully present to You and to myself that I may commune with You for the sake of your glory and the world around me.”
Silence: In this time, try and become silent before the Lord both internally and externally for 5 minutes. If your mind wanders, gently bring it back to stillness.
Praise: Bless the Lord by declaring these truths about Him!
“You are the God who caring and close You counsel your people are our comforter. You are our confidence and our covenant-keeping God. You never change, you are consistent. You are creative and capable. You are deserving of ceaseless praise.”
Devotional: Jesus promised his followers that we would receive power in our lives from the Holy Spirit to be his witnesses. This is not a one time event, but meant to be a lifestyle of being filled with the Spirit. This is experienced in our lives through greater communion with the Spirit, greater fruits of the Spirit in our lives, and greater use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the glory of God and the good of others. As you read today’s text, take time to ask Jesus to fill you afresh with his power. Linger before Him with expectancy of His power being poured out afresh in your life.
Scripture: Read today’s text slowly. Feed your spirit on the words. Your goal in this time is to commune with Jesus through His Word. Take note as you sense His Presence.
Acts 1.8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Worship: Worship forms the truths of Scripture deep within our lives. This week we will be worshipping to the song Surrounded. It is a powerful song and perfect for meditating on the Holy Spirit.
Listen: Take time to listen to the Holy Spirit. Write down anything you sense the Lord speaking.
Obedience: What from today is the Lord calling you to put in practice? Could be to pray for someone, to call someone, to serve someone etc.
