Enabled by the Holy Spirit

Richard Waialeale

Scripture
"All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them." (Acts 2:4)
Observation
The character of the Holy Spirit is just like Jesus. The Holy Spirit is a teacher through scriptures, a helper through assistance and dynamics, a glorifier to exalt Jesus Christ. Knowing all of this, and seeing what the apostles and Peter experienced, it's no wonder why many people throughout time, desired the Holy Spirit in their lives. It was promised by God that once we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior into our heart, and we take that step to publicly profess this change by being water baptized. Now we are ready to be as it says in scripture, enabled by the Holy Spirit. What I also noticed through scriptures is when we pray over those to receive the Holy Spirit, it doesn't point out what gifts of the Spirit, He will impart on those we pray for, only that it is a promise from God and that they will receive the Holy Spirit.
Application
If ever I encounter a time that I can pray for people to receive the Holy Spirit, then pray to the Lord God that the Holy Spirit will fall upon them. Pray that from this time on the Holy Spirit will reveal Himself as the teacher, helper, and glorifier as everyone will receive. Whatever gifts of the Holy Spirit, He enables on these believers, and it is up to the Holy Spirit Himself.
Prayer
Thank you Lord for showing me these things through the Book of Acts. I pray Lord that You forgive me of my sins this morning and I repent for anything that may have displeased You. Praise be to God for His promises and each beautiful day we experience in life with Him. I pray Lord that You will fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I may also shine the Light of Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to enable those that step forward to receive Him in Jesus Name I Pray. Amen.
