So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, "Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?"
He replied, "The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere — in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Almighty God, I know several people who need to know your power and presence in their lives. Enter their lives with power through the Holy Spirit. Make them aware of your presence. Give them a renewed awareness of your love. And, dear Father, as you move in their lives, I also ask for you to give me a better understanding and experience of the Spirit’s power as I seek to become more like Jesus and demonstrate his grace to others. I pray this through the authority of Jesus and the intercession of the Spirit. Amen.
Unstoppable! is a one-year devotional guide through the book of Acts. Each devotional consists of a scripture passage, a reflection and a prayer. The reflection opens up the day's scripture and shows how it challenges one to live for Jesus.
