And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. Joel 2:28-29 NKJV
Jesus is going to pour out His Spirit on people we would not normally look to for spiritual leadership. Jesus is going to confound the wisdom of the wise in the way He pours out His Spirit on people.
Jesus is going to use the lonely the brokenhearted and outcast to bring glory and honor to His Name. Jesus looks at people’s hearts not position status or resources. The Lord wants us to know it is Him doing the work.
We do not know when God will end the current world system. We do not know when Jesus will return to claim His bride. We are living in the end times. What does that mean? It means the Holy Spirit is among us today!
We do not have to wait for signs and wonders. God is pouring out His Holy Spirit today. He has already taken up residence in our hearts. Jesus wants to do great and mighty things in us and through us today!
These verses remind me of when I first met Jesus.
Jesus showed me things in dreams and visions. The Lord spoke truth to my heart. Jesus taught me His word in miraculous ways. I was amazed.
No one told me God would communicate with me. I did not know He would interact with me. I did not know Jesus would love me in practical ways. I did not know Jesus would actively pursue my love. It was the most exciting time in my life!
Why did Jesus communicate with me so freely and often in the early days of my walk?
It is because my walk with Jesus was fresh and new. I was excited about my relationship with Jesus. He transformed my life so completely and unexpectedly nothing could distract me from Jesus. The Lord had what He always wanted, my undivided attention.
Jesus wants your undivided attention today!
Jesus wants you to be excited about your relationship with Him. He wants to communicate with you today. Jesus wants you to keep your eyes wide open so you can see the practically ways He pours out His love on you!
Jesus never changes. He is calling each of us to follow Him into a life of faith. We can explore the height and width and depth of His love in unique and amazing ways. Jesus will not lead you with a pillar of fire the way He led Israel. Jesus will be easy to follow if you give Him your undivided attention.
Give Jesus your undivided attention today!
