All Believers Have Been Given The Power of The Holy Spirit to Do Good Works
Have you received it?
At the beginning of this year, I felt God would do new things in my life. I prayed for it, I believed it, and now I am waiting with expectation.
I am ready for more of God’s wonder-working power in my life.
I don’t want to live a Christian life where I see no power. I want to live out my calling — share the gospel and be a blessing to others.
For what other reason was I saved?
God did not save us to go to church once a week, say our prayers at night, and then hope for something good to happen.
No, we are to pray, pray, and then pray again until we see God moving in our lives.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
I’m not the only one who feels this way. Have you read the work of Julia Kathryn? She’s on fire for Jesus! And that’s the way we’re all meant to be.
She also has a desire to grow in 2023 and she is following the guidance of the Holy Spirit to do this.
I recommend you read her work if you feel you need encouragement in your faith.

Another inspiring writer, filled with the Holy Spirit is Jenny Alexander. Below are two beautiful poems she wrote about the Holy Spirit.
You might be saying to yourself now, well that’s okay for them, they’ve probably had easy lives, but my life is in a mess.
All of these writers, including myself, have come through a lot of painful things such as depression, anxiety, loneliness, physical sickness, and even divorce.
Jenny writes about her painful divorce and how she came through that by the grace of God. She is now helping others overcome the pain and stigma of divorce.
She even started her own publication called “Overcomers Digest — We’re not victims — we’re victorious!”
We are not called to be lukewarm
Don’t be like the church in Laodicea which was once fervent, but gradually degenerated. If we are not careful, our faith can dry up and leave us feeling apathetic.
In John’s vision of Christ, Jesus says to the church of Laodicea:
“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”
Keep your faith alive by asking the Holy Spirit to fill you until you are overflowing with love for the Lord and compassion for the lost.
