Day 22

I, The Holy Spirit, am The Spirit of the Lord

The Spirit of the LORD came upon him [Othniel], and he judged Israel. 

He went out to war, and the LORD delivered Cushan-Rishathaim, 

king of Mesopotamia, into his hand.

Judges 3:10

When I, the Spirit of the Lord, came upon Othniel, it was Me, the Holy Spirit—the third Person of the Trinity—who empowered him for service (Judges 3:10). When I, the Spirit of the Lord, come upon you, I will help you live a godly life and serve with power. Just as I, the Spirit of the Lord, came upon Othniel to give him victory over a profane enemy, so I can fill every corner of your life with renewed energy. But I can’t fill the empty parts of your life if you don’t yield them to Me. Right now, stop your self-efforts. Cry out for the strength from Me, the Spirit of the Lord, to empower you.

Your Prayer

Holy Spirit, I come to You for victory. Help me overcome

outward temptations. Give me the courage to overcome inner doubts.

Give me discipline to overcome my rebellion.

Just as I, the Spirit of the Lord, strengthened Othniel to overcome a Syrian king, so I can fill you with a power that you’ve never experienced. But I will not fill a dirty vessel. Sin keeps Me from filling every crevice and cranny of your life. Deal with your rebellious attitude in a spiritual way so that I, the Spirit of the Lord, can be poured out in full power.

Your Response

Holy Spirit, I repent of my sin, and turn to You. I confess my sin

and ask forgiveness. Holy Spirit, let Your power flow into my life.

Come, flow quickly into my life to fill every empty corner with

Your power. Flow, Spirit, flow. Amen.

Reading: Judges 3:1-12

Key Thought: I, the Spirit of the Lord, must fill you.
