"Endued with Power from on High!" - Morning by Morning, May 14, 2020

Morning by Morning, May 14 - "Endued with Power from on High!"
Good morning, Lord Jesus. I speak out Your name and seek Your face to draw near in the deep communion of prayer to begin my day embraced by my Father, centered in Christ, and filled afresh with Your Holy Spirit. ...
"Then (Jesus) said to them, 'Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high!'" (Luke 24:46-49)
There's coming a day soon when we will again be "endued with power from on high!"' 
Even as I write out these words from Your Word, I have a strong sense in my spirit of You saying, "Wait for it. Wait for it. Wait for it. It's on the way. More than you've seen. More than you can imagine. This is My Promise, this is My Spirit, to be poured out in great measure upon My people." ...
Yes, Lord! Let it be so! 
Your Word is fulfilled in measures, as we journey through the unfolding of Your glorious and sovereign plans for our lives and our world. The prophet Joel spoke of this day of a great outpouring of Your Spirit (Joel 2:28-32). The apostle Peter spoke of this day of a great outpouring of Your Spirit (Acts 2:14-21). Each were speaking of the Promise of the Father. Each were speaking of great outpouring of Your Spirit. Each were speaking of a time when Your people would be "endued with power from on high!"
O Father! We are excited! We are expectant! We are tarrying here in the Jerusalem of our hearts, so hungry, so thirsty, for this fresh outpouring of Your Holy Spirit in our day. 
In these days of our generation, of our journey through the days of this Biblical year, we're between "the third day" of the Resurrection and the Day of Pentecost. As each day passes, You're pouring out a hunger and thirst upon Your people. You're preparing the way of the Lord in our hearts, preparing the way for the Promise of the Father, that we may be "endued with power from on high!" What You've done in great measure in the past, may You do in even greater measure now!
We have truly have no idea of all that means, apart from the measures of insight You've given us in Your prophetic Word and in Your prophetic words. "Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7). And so many of Your prophets are sensing a great fulfillment of another great measure of Your Word to pour out Your Spirit, the great Promise of the Father, that we may be "endued with power from on high!"
Come, Holy Spirit! Come fill our hearts with the fullness of Your Presence, even as never before! A fresh encounter, a fresh outpouring, a fresh filling, a fresh anointing, a fresh awakening! All to proclaim the name of Jesus in Your power, in the truth and love of our Father, in the repentance of our hearts to embrace the mercy of God, wherever we are and "to all nations" of the earth! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

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