Be Ready for the Power Switch

“It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; but you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.” Acts 1:7-8

God doesn’t always reveal timing. Time is such a fixation in culturally sophisticated countries like ours. God “keeps His cards close to His chest” on that one. But what He does offer us freely is power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us. This makes for a relationship where we need to be dependant upon God continually and to be completely trusting of His work in our lives. We may not know ahead of time the way God will choose to work or when His hand will move. However, if we’re always ready – that is if we re in an abiding relationship with Him – keeping our hearts open through prayer and being in His Word and applying these Biblical lessons to our throughts and attitudes, then we will be ready to be used by the Master when He turns the power switch on.
