Open Heaven 20 April 2020 – Ready For Service?

Every Christian has also been equipped with all that is necessary to carry out the assignment. The Bible makes it clear that God does not give assignment to His children without providing the necessary tools to execute the task. Before God sent the disciples out as witnesses to Jerusalem. Judea, Samaria and the uttermost parts of the earth, they were first filled with the power of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit is the One who equips the saints for tasks in the vineyard of God. The importance of the Holy Spirit is emphasised in Luke 24:49:

“…behold, I sent the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.”  The Holy Spirit is so crucial for service that the disciples were told to remain in Jerusalem until His power came upon them.

When God calls anyone into a spiritual office, it is because He has a role for such a person to play in His redemption plan for mankind. Isaiah 61:1 says,

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; Because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good things unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.”

Open Heaven 20 April 2020 Monday:Prayer Point

The Holy Spirit gives hope to the hopeless, healing to the sick and life to spiritually dead person. Acts 10:38 reveals that it is the anointing of the Holy Spirit that enabled Jesus to do all that He did. Hence, if we are to do the same and even greater works (John 14:12), then we must also be filled with the Holy Spirit. Are you ready for service?
Prayer Point
Father, please anoint and equip me for greater works, in the mighty name of Jesus.
