TODAY’S TEXT: ‘Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth’(PSALM 104:30 KJV)
TODAY’S WORD: THE SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT IS THE POWER BEHIND CREATION
The supply of the Spirit is the force behind creation. From day two we saw that until the Spirit was supplied even God struggled with the work of creation. That might have given the impression that the Spirit only aids creation. And yesterday again we also saw that which is dead can be recreated and brought back to life by the Holy Spirit. But the Holy Spirit is much more than all the aforementioned; He is the very person behind creation. He is the Spirit of creativity. Psalm 104:30, that same scripture in KJV says you ‘sent forth your Spirit and they are created!’
To create means to, bring into existence that which was not there before. It means to create something out of nothing. Out of nothingness, the Holy Spirit can work wonders. Mary had nothing in her womb but the power of the highest worked wonders (Luke 1:35) and produce one of the greatest miracles in the history of humanity.
The Holy Spirit did something similar in 2 Kings 4. The wife of the Prophet has been left with debt by her anointed but yet indebted prophet-husband. The prophet had a supernatural solution as he has asked the woman, ‘what do you have left in the house?’ The woman had some oil. How prophetic it was that what she had left was symbolic of the person of the Holy Spirit. The solution was simple but supernatural, the prophet told her:
‘And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.’ And as the woman obeyed the little oil began to fill empty vessels. The oil stayed only when there were no more empty vessels to fill. Are you empty? Are you without anything? Bring your empty heart and life and the Holy Spirit shall fill you up! For when the Spirit is supplied, the emptiness in our lives is filled!
The supply of the Spirit turned nothing into something. That which is nothing in your life, body, business, career, family, ministry, but which is needed, shall be supplied today by the Spirit. Out of your 'nothingness' shall emerge greatness! Amen
TODAY’S PRAYER: Lord fill me afresh with your Spirit, I empty myself of every form of pride and self-dependence, fill my life afresh
TODAY’S THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: To create means to bring into existence that which was not there before. It means to create something out of nothing. Out of nothingness the Holy Spirit can work wonders. Mary had nothing in her womb but the power of the highest worked wonders (Luke 1:35) and produce one of the greatest miracles in history of humanity. Out of your 'nothingness' shall emerge greatness!
