Topic: The Fire We Need [DCLM Daily Manna 12 November 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Acts 13:1-12 (KJV)
Key Verse: “As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them“ (Acts 13:2).
The remedy for a church that would budge is FIRE – the Holy Ghost fire. Have you ever watched a little boy try to get a big old turtle to move? The more he coaxes it, the slower it goes. He then gets a stick and tries to club it. What does the turtle do? It just pulls its head, feet and tail inside its shell for a spell. It just sits there. The little boy gets one corner of the old turtle and props it up with a stick. Then runs to get some matches. He lights the match and holds it under the old turtle. Immediately, things will start happening. If you think a turtle can’t go fast, light up a match stick under Brother Turtle and watch him fly.
In the text, the Holy Ghost gave Barnabas and Saul a special mandate (Acts 13:2). So, they being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed for the assignment. At Paphos, they met a sorcerer, false prophet and Jew, who attempted to withstand them and the salvation of the deputy. Then Saul, filled with the power of the Holy Ghost, cast blindness on him. The deputy believed and was astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
The promised power of the Holy Ghost is given by God the Father to the believer who is thirsty. Christ told the disciples about the promise of the Father while He was with them. The point is, as a believer, there are certain revelations you will never receive and impartations you will never get until the Spirit of God comes into your life.
As a sanctified believer who wants to be extraordinary in the hands of the Almighty, you need the Spirit’s power and fire in your life. Desire, pray earnestly for it and watch it overwhelm you, like the disciples in Christ’s day. With this fire, you will truly begin to enjoy your relationship with God in the fullness of the Spirit.
Thought For The Day: Fire sets ablaze; get baptised in the Holy Ghost.
Bible Reading In One Year: Matthew 27; Mark 15
