And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Acts 2:38).
The Holy Ghost is a comforter. It is necessary for our spiritual existence. It is God’s promise to help us to live in this world. I am truly blessed to be able to experience this promise. Today marks the anniversary of the first time that the Holy Ghost was poured out on his people in the upper room. It would never have happened if the believers had not waited for it. They could have gotten weary and impatient. Instead, they chose to pray until. I can only imagine how powerful that meeting must have been. It didn’t matter that they were waiting for days, they knew that God was up to something and it was only a matter of time before they would have the victory.
How is our faith, today? Do we choose to obey the Lord and wait on our promise? How often do we hesitate to believe because it has never happened before? My prayer today is that we will be sensitive to the spirit and just believe.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
