Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. Acts 2:33 (NIV)
As we take a moment to examine ourselves, our lives and our current standing in faith, what do we see? Where are we right now with the Lord? We could compare our situation using people around. But is the righteousness, the spirituality or the responsibility of another going to help us? Will we each need to be measured individually? Will we need to know without doubt where our hearts stand in relation to our God now and forever to come?
Are we advanced enough in our faith to realize that to be a real Christian we should have the promise Holy Spirit welling up and moving in us? If we can get honest enough with ourselves can we find Him there? Is He ruling our hearts? Is He setting our attention on the Lord above all else? Is He filling us with Love?
Could we take a good look with our souls exposed before the Lord right now? Could we ask to be shown how important we are making our relationship with God to be? Could we ask for the Spirit of God to move powerfully in our lives today?
Please draw us near in the warmest embrace. Let us come so close to You now that You can fill us with Your Spirit! Let Your love govern us today! Let us refuse the hear anything but Your voice saying that we are truly Yours! Let our intimate walk be the proof of our standing with You we pray!
