PRAYER: Please pray tonight for our country and our leaders.
DEVOTION: “The Holy Spirit never comes until there is a place ready for Him. The Holy Spirit can only come into us (His temples) when we are fully yielded to Him, for the Spirit “does not dwell in temples made with hands” (Acts 7:48) but in “tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart” (2 Cor. 3:3). So it doesn’t matter what kind of a building you get; you cannot count on the building being a substitute for the Holy Spirit. You will all have to be temples of the Holy Spirit for the building to be anything like Holy Spirit order.” (Pg 75)
The Spirit cannot live in a place that is not prepared for it. Our hearts need to be ready. They need to be open for business. Our hearts, minds and souls need to be ready for the Spirit to enter and reside in us.
Just like we wouldn’t want to live in an unfinished house, the Spirit can’t reside in us with an unfinished heart.
We need to be completely yielded to Him. We need to be all in. Fully invested.
Are you all in? Can the Spirit find a place in you that’s ready?
God, let us be prepared for your Spirit.
