We have been exploring the impact of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church. As we study the book of Acts, we see that the Holy Spirit was active. In fact, Acts could rightly be call the Acts of the Holy Spirit instead of the Acts of the Apostles. In Acts 13 we see that the church was active in serving the Lord. The Holy Spirit spoke while they were ministering, serving the Lord and fasting.
It is as if the saints in Antioch were expecting God to do something great among them. To take it a step further, they weren’t just expecting God to do something great among them. They were asking God to do something great among them.
In the Spirit filled church, there is a sense of anticipation and expectation that God is going to move. We should expect the Spirit of God to speak to us and do great things through us. Too often the church doesn’t expect much from God and we end up getting what we expect. We should be working, worshipping, fasting, and praying in anticipation and expectation of a Word from the Holy Spirit.
Often our thinking is limited by what we know we can do. We need to think beyond our limits and dream beyond our resources. Why do you need God’s power if you can do it in your own power? Time and time again, our heavenly Father has demonstrated that He is the God of the upgrade. He is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine, according to the power that is working within us. The work of the Spirit is not limited by our imagination. The work of the Spirit is only limited by the limitless power of God.
