4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance
The day of Pentecost was the fulfillment of a promise God made. The holy ghost is the gift promised to every believer. It leads and guides into all truth. The goal of every person should be to not only have the Holy Ghost but to live, walk, pray and worship in its power. It’s not just speaking in tongues; it’s power to stand on the word of God in a world that is following false doctrines and carnal mindsets. So, as we end this fast, ask God for your gift and receive it freely. It will change your life.
A Word of Prayer by, Tony Darnell Stutts:
Father God, in the wonderful and matchless name of Jesus I humbly come before you to honor you and to give you thanks. God you are AWESOME! I’ve seen the work that you’ve done, from healings and blessings. You are truly a miracle worker, a way maker! Father God, I pray for those that are on this 50 Consecration. I pray that every prayer that was set at the foot of your throne shall be answered according to your will in the name of Jesus. I pray for the strength that you have given your people. Lord, my we rise up and testify of your goodness and your greatness. I thank you for the doors that you’ve opened for my family. We will walk through those doors with gratitude in our hearts and a testimony on our lips. Thank You! I pray for every pastor, every minister, every member and every church that you’ve established and appointed. I pray, Father God, that we forever give your name praise. Great things you have done, great is thy faithfulness. In Jesus name, Amen.
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
This specific verse is special because it prophetically speaks to the attributes of Christ. Isaiah, a major prophet in the Old Testament foretells the coming and deity of Christ. This scripture tells us that the Spirit of God not only rest on him, but also abides in him. This exemplifies the very gift of the Holy Spirit given to us on the day of Pentecost. Not only does it rest on us, but dwells within us. The indwelling Spirit of God guides us and allows us the grace to grow in becoming more like him. Additionally, God gives us his Spirit without measure, meaning the more we desire, the more he will grant us. As ambassadors of his Grace we must forever stay hungry for the Spirit of God to be activated in our lives. The more of God we seek and the deeper our relationship with Christ grows; the more we become like him. Christ is our bridge to God, and when we fully commit and devote our ways to his perfect will, we can rest having No Fear & All Faith!! Learning to seek and submit to God, shows wisdom and understanding of God’s power and plan for our lives. As we come to an end in this consecration; continue to desire more of him, submit to his will and receive the indwelling of his Spirit that you may forever be Victorious through Christ Jesus!!!
Stay Focused, Stay Encouraged, Stay Blessed
Gratefully, Shaquann Braswell
And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
A Word of Prayer by, Minister Jackie Braithwaite:
Thank you so much for another day of life. I pray that you would give us strength to be strong for You in the world today. Lord, you know the struggles that we will face today. Be with us as we go through them. Carry us if we’re too weak to move. If we stumble, forgive us Father. When we succeed, we will praise You! You are worthy of all praise. We praise You for our families. Be with our family today as they go their separate ways. Bring us all back home safely to each other I pray. I pray for safe travels to and from work and I pray that you will use us as you see fit today for Your Glory. Amen.
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
