Devotion on Christian Living, Acts 1:8. 1 page.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you …” (Acts 1:8).

It was really, really dark. The thunderstorm not only knocked out our power, but even the street lights were dark. Confident that our flashlights would work because of their new batteries, we were able to see and not stumble. More light shone on our kitchen table from a portable, battery-powered lantern; recently-charged cell phones were available in case of an emergency; we could even listen to weather alerts and music from our battery-operated radio. No need to panic. We were confident because we were prepared.

This brings to mind several thoughts on how we, as children of God, become confident as we receive power from Him to use our gifts in His service.
