And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 1:4-8)
Today's Morsel: Someone said that the person who has the most money, has the most power. I guess I could agree with that statement, since Jesus has more than anyone else. The psalmist said, "God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God"(Psalms 62:11). The different between a person filled with the Holy Ghost and has power, and a person in the world who thinks that they have power, is temperance. God's power causes one to react differently. They do not exalt themselves, but they use their power to exalt the Giver of the power, Jesus Christ. But those who think that they have power in this world, use it to exalt themselves. Jesus said that once we receive His power, we would be witnesses for Him throughout the entire world. When the Holy Ghost is within you, you never have to worry about your power running out as it will be a continual flow. If I were you, I would not seek for worldly power, I would seek for godly power. Because with godly power, your life is renewed every day.
Sing: Did-ya, Did-ya,Did-ya, Did-ya, get that power! Did-ya, Did-ya, Did-ya, Did-ya, get that power! I'm talking about the Holy Ghost. It'll get all in your walk. It'll get all in your talk. It'll make you feel real good. It'll make you shout for joy. Did-ya, Did-ya, Did-ya, Did-ya, get that power! Did-ya, Did-ya, Did-ya, Did-ya, get that power!
