Text for the Day -- Joel 2:25-29 ---------- I will repay you for the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent against you.
You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, who has dealt wondrously with you. And my people shall never again be put to shame. You shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I, the LORD, am your God and there is no other. And my people shall never again be put to shame.
Then afterwards I will pour out my spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. Even on the male and female slaves, in those days, I will pour out my spirit.
Devotional ---------- This is a strong prophetic passage that describes a promise from God to bestow the Holy Spirit on all and provide an abundant life through the Spirit. Peter quoted this passage on the day of Pentecost to explain what was happening when they poured out onto the street and began witnessing to Jesus, highly charged and speaking in tongues. The Holy Spirit is the great Connector to God and the great Inspirer of God's people.
Prayer ---------------- Come, Holy Spirit, direct my ways and my witness. Amen
We are not Human beings going through a temporary Spiritual experience, but Spiritual beings going through a temporary Human experience.
