Acts 2 - It is Raining the Spirit

"In the Last Days," God says, "I will pour out my Spirit
on every kind of people:
Your sons will prophesy, also your daughters;
Your young men will see visions, your old men dream dreams.
When the time comes, I'll pour out my Spirit on those who serve me, men and women both,
and they'll prophesy.
I'll set wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below,
Blood and fire and billowing smoke, the sun turning black and the moon blood-red,
Before the Day of the Lord arrives, the Day tremendous and marvelous;
And whoever calls out for helpto me, God, will be saved."

Oh, some days I just want to cry out for Him to pour His spirit on me like rain. Today was one of those days. The tedious and the mundane were over-running my life.

I want to see His wonders and His miracles. There is so much need around me. My business partner's sister had surgery yesterday as she is dying of cancer. We prayed and miraculously there was no cancer in her stomach. She still needs strength to recover from the surgery, but I believe He is at work in her life. Rain on Her Lord with your healing love.

We need direction in our business. Lead us to the right partners Lord. I know that our business is not too mundane for you. It is an incredible opportunity to pour out your love and your power.

I love what Acts 2:27-28 says about how David viewed God:

I saw God before me for all time.
Nothing can shake me; he's right by my side.
I'm glad from the inside out, ecstatic;
I've pitched my tent in the land of hope.
I know you'll never dump me in Hades;
I'll never even smell the stench of death.
You've got my feet on the life-path,
with your face shining sun-joy all around.

My tent is pitched in the land of hope! My feet are on His life-path. There is no other word like "Hallelujah!".
