SpiritFire: Open Our Ears to the Spirit's Promise
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To those who are victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give each of them a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.
The Spirit speaks to Jesus' churches and to Jesus' Kingdom people. The Spirit reminds us that no matter how difficult our challenges may be, we will be sustained, shown as innocent, proven victorious, and given a new name. In a world of disease, destruction, decay, and death, the Holy Spirit assures us of lasting life and eternal victory and new beginnings. This is especially important when we face trials, temptations, and persecutions. And living in a broken world, we know those will come to all of us at one time or another. So isn't it powerful that the Spirit promises us a better future and lives in us to guarantee that better future!
Almighty God, my Abba Father, thank you for your promises! Thank you even more for the Living Promise, the Holy Spirit who dwells within me. I want to hear the Spirit's voice of hope and respond with faithfulness as I await the unfolding glory that is guaranteed by the Spirit's presence. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
