Will you obey the HOLY SPIRIT?
Will you obey when the HOLY SPIRIT speaks to your heart this year?
As a Roman centurion, Cornelius was visited by an angel and heard from the HOLY SPIRIT. Cornelius had 100 men reporting to him. Though he had heard of Yahweh, the God of the Jews, and respected Him enough to donate to the church.
Cornelius was not a committed believer!
But, that changed one afternoon when an angel of the Lord appeared to Cornelius.
“The angel answered, ‘Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God. Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter.’”
The angel in shining clothes appearing inside his house had Cornelius’ attention, and he obeyed.
God was preparing Cornelius’ heart for a life-changing message.
1 John 2:3
“We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands”
Pray: God, thank You for the power of Your Spirit to lead me and to change lives. Help me to respond in obedience to Your promptings. Have a wonderful new year!
This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.
