Power of Pentecost

Israelites looked back, … But Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still.’    Exodus 14:5-2

In your life today, don’t look back – All that you are and all that you will be, is ahead of you.

Power of Pentecost

I will now call to mind the works of the Lord,
   and will declare what I have seen.
By the word of the Lord his works are made;
   and all his creatures do his will. 

How desirable are all his works,
   and how sparkling they are to see!
All these things live and remain for ever;
   each creature is preserved to meet a particular need.
All things come in pairs, one opposite to the other,
   and he has made nothing incomplete.
Each supplements the virtues of the other.
   Who could ever tire of seeing his glory?   Sirach 42:15-25

In your life today, how will the gift in your hand fulfill the works of the Lord?

Power of Pentecost

Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; this man was righteous and devout, looking forward to the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit rested on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. Guided by the Spirit, Simeon came into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him what was customary under the law, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying,
‘Master, now you are dismissing your servant in peace,
   according to your word;
for my eyes have seen your salvation..  Luke 2:25-30

In your life today, where or when have you seen or experienced God’s salvation?
