Morning by Morning, May 22 - Day of Passionate, Personal Pentecost

Good morning, Lord Jesus. I seek to be more like You today.  ...

"When the day of Pentecost had fully come, there were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance" (Acts 2:1-4 NJKV).

On both the Jewish calendar and the Christian calendar, the day of Pentecost will come this Sunday. And at the same time, You desire every day to be the day of passionate, personal Pentecost for us. You call us all to wholly surrender to Your power and authority in our lives, that Your Holy Spirit may come like rushing mighty wind to fill the whole house of our hearts.

Let the wind blow! Let the fire fall! Fill me with Your Holy Spirit today! Baptize me, saturate me, immerse me in Your Holy Spirit and Your holy fire. Blow the cobwebs off my spirit. Burn the chaff out of my soul. Speak life to my weary bones. I want to be fully alive, fully on fire. I want to take my place in this great move of Your Holy Spirit for the great harvest You promised at the end of the age (Matthew 13:39).

Don't leave me out! Don't leave me behind! I want to be part of Your exceedingly great army of the kingdom of God advancing to the ends of the earth until the whole earth is "filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14). I want to be part of the move of Your Spirit in the hearts of Your people wholly surrendered to You "turning the world upside down" in my generation! (Acts 17:6)  Let the day of my passionate, personal Pentecost fully come in me! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

I pray you will continually experience the power and presence of the Holy Spirit filling you and baptizing you in passionate, personal Pentecost, as you wholly surrender to the Lord awakening you to the fullness of His life through you, in Jesus' name.  Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
