Day Five: Setting the stage

Acts 1:15  In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty)…
Acts 2:1-4 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

There were about 120 who lived immersed in prayer and in God’s word through the Spirit’s leading. They were living in the majestic in their daily lives, and this set the stage for the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit during Pentecost.
Like the 120, may we also commit to growing in our times of prayer, dependence upon God’s word, and living in the Spirit’s power. May we be also counted as the ‘120’ for this generation—whose lives of prayer and the word sets the stage for the Spirit’s move in our midst.

Prayer: Lord, may our lives be such that it sets the stage for an increased activity and work of you Spirit in our churches and cities. We pray for times of fresh empowering and refreshing in our lives. In Jesus’ name, amen.
