Through Jesus’ death and resurrection we have been given the opportunity for a brand-new start. If you haven’t already visited the pages which explain how this has been made possible, please take time to do that now—so that what follows will make sense!
I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
[ Ezekiel 36:25-27]
When Jesus ascended into heaven, the Holy Spirit was released to earth in His place. And He hasn’t come just to anoint special people like those mentioned in the Old Testament, but to fill all who believe.
In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
As a teenager, I asked many times to be filled with the Spirit, and got very discouraged because nothing appeared to have happened; that is, I had no physical encounter. Eventually, a book I was reading transformed the situation.
Faith is based on God's Word, not on our circumstances or feelings. God said He would give the Holy Spirit to those who ask, [Luke 11:13], I had asked—so He had given.
I began to thank Him for answering my prayer, despite how I was feeling. After about three days, I was overwhelmed with all the feeling I could possibly want. Try it and see!
