If We Believe The Power of The Holy Spirit, Everything Can Happen (Evening)
John 11:40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”
Steve Jobs made a tough decision after 6 months of spending his first year at Reed College. He said, “So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made.” Jobs only had time to take courses that he was interested in, such as a calligraphy class that explored different fonts, variable space between letters, and so on. It turned out that ten years later, the typography that Jobs learned was successfully used on the Macintosh, becoming the first computer with beautiful typography. The decision to do what he believed in is the key to the success of the Apple Company.
When Jesus asked to remove the stone blocking tomb of Lazarus, Martha, Lazarus’ brother, tried to prevent it. She was worried his brother’s corpse, 4 days old, must smell bad. But Jesus said, if he believed, he would see the glory of God. And miracles did happen, there was no smell but the living Lazarus, who came out of the tomb.
The biggest obstacle for the Holy Spirit to work is ourselves. When we limit His power with our thoughts and logic, His power no longer works. There were many problems that we experienced in 2020, and the problems may continue this year. If we can see, we need the help of the Holy Spirit to get through this year well. Then will we give full trust and also the freedom to the Holy Spirit to lead us? If we believe, in 2021 everything we have faith in CAN HAPPEN by the power of the Holy Spirit. Don’t get put your hope on your intelligence, your strengths, or your experiences. Instead, learn to believe in God. Live our days with the Holy Spirit, learn to be sensitive to His voice, and obey His guidance. Then we will see, the extraordinary and limitless work of the Holy Spirit manifested in our lives.
If we BELIEVE, everything we have faith in 2021 CAN HAPPEN by THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

“Jesus, thank you for Your words tonight. You are the Almighty God who strengthens our faith. Teach us to continue to uphold Your vision and continue to walk in God’s great plan and plan for our lives so that Your promise in 2021 is fulfilled in our life. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we have prayed. Amen.”
