Today, I woke up to the book of Acts playing from my audio Bible. And I just imagine what the post Pentecost disciples of Christ would be doing now if they were alive in this day of COVID-19.
Before Pentecost, they would be all over the place, hiding in fear like they did after Jesus’ death. They would be denying that they ever knew Jesus like Peter did after the arrest of Jesus.
Probably like Paul, they would even persecute the ones who are walking in the manifestation of the power and of the Spirit!
But following an encounter with God and being filled with the Holy Spirit, I am sure they would not go into hiding. They’d be out there, ministering life and health to those who are sick.
They would see this situation as an opportunity to demonstrate the power of the Holy Spirit and to show to the world that we have a God who is the solution to the problems of this world.
The media and internet would be agog with news of Christians who are laying hands on people with confirmed cases of the virus, and they are getting cured immediately.
Sick people would be teeming to find these people and have them pray for them. Even hospitals would be asking for their help as the number of the sick grows daily!
What made the difference? I believe that the Holy Spirit inside them transformed them from cowardly, hiding, fearful and denying disciples into bold powerhouses. It was a complete transformation!
You never know what you’re capable of until you’re filled, equipped, inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit. You become a “wonder human!”
Father, the world needs You to manifest Your power right now. We need You to show Your power here on earth through all those whom You have filled and transformed by Your Holy Spirit.
Therefore, give us the boldness to do that which you declared we would. To lay our hands on the sick and for them to receive their healing. To decree life and health and it is established. Do this and let Your name alone be glorified in Yeshua’s mighty name. #Selah
Have a blessed day and stay safe. Agape ❤
