Today’s devotion is based on Joel 2:28,29, “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams; your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.”
On the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit was poured out. What the prophet Joel had foreseen came true in a very powerful display. Perhaps you’re longing for the same kind of outpouring. You wish that you could have such visible and tangible signs to know God is keeping his promise. Yet, what Joel saw, what God promised, is happening every single day.
It is happening every single day today, for God pours out his Spirit through his Word, the Bible. It is in the Bible that we learn about our Savior, Jesus. It’s in the Bible that we hear all that Jesus has done for us. It’s in the Bible that we learn that this good news is our privilege to share. Every time the words of the Bible are shared, God’s Spirit is being poured out in abundance.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, continue to pour out your Holy Spirit so that men and women everywhere may share the good news of Jesus, our Savior. In Jesus’ saving name, I pray. Amen
