Today’s daily devotion is based on Luke 24:49, “I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
God the Father promised the Holy Spirit, and Jesus sent him to clothe the disciples with power. How often do you think about the power of the Holy Spirit?
Jesus sends that power to clothe us. What amazing things can we do if we lean into the power that God has clothed us with? What faith does this require? What would it be like to sit for a while today and ponder this power? Consider why God would clothe his people with his power from on high. Ponder for a little or a long time but contemplate and listen to his whispers and obey. Think also about the readings for the past few days. Wonder at God’s almighty power. Be amazed; be awed. We are clothed with God’s Holy Spirit.
Father God, you sent your Holy Spirit to clothe your people. Thank you that you are my God. Help me recognize your mightiness, power, and awesomeness. Help me hear your whispers and follow your will obediently. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
