Pondering the Impossible

Acts 2: 1 – 8

And when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent, rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.

Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem devout men, from every nation under heaven. And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were bewildered, because they were each one hearing them speak in his own language. And they were amazed and marveled, saying, “Why, are not all thee who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we each hear them in our own language to which we are born?”

So this is that pouring out of the Holy Spirit which we have been discussing and which the Father promised and Jesus foretold. This is the Spirit’s great debutante ball, if you will, His debut. Since this great event, the third person of the trinity has come to us. Glory!!

Doesn’t this event sound a bit like when God put His Spirit on the seventy elders (see the Word of the Day from Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at www.iveyministries.blogspot.com)? The Spirit is the power of God and through him we can do things which we cannot do in our own abilities. He is empowerment, strength and wisdom. When we allow our spirits to connect with the Holy Spirit, truly nothing is impossible to us.

Just think about it for a moment. This is the power that created the earth. He was hovering over the void and then God said, “Let there be” and there was. The Holy Spirit brought into existence everything the Father said. Amazing! That same power, that same force which was hovering over the void is now living inside you if you have invited him in. What does that say for who you are now? What can the two of you do? Ponder that for a while and then start doing the impossible.
