Just vessels

“I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”

Romans 9:17

The human often struggles to comprehend the dimension of the Spirit. 

But just as we cannot see the power that causes our refrigerators to cool or our lights to come on…we must accept that our faith in the Holy Spirit should not be based on our seeing Him.

It should be based on recognizing what He does in our lives when we are surrendered to Christ and possess His power.”

The power of God’s Spirit can give us insights that are not our own. We can be inspired to receive revelations about our own lives, or world conditions.

The danger is that when we experience these things we may be tempted to think that we are special. But the fact is that we are simply vessels of His Spirit…very much like a fridge or a light bulb is a vessel of electrical power.


Dear God, I know that all I am and all I can do is because of Your Spirit in me. Let that knowledge always keep me humble and make my heart completely devoid of self so that it can be filled with Your Spirit. Amen
