So Samuel took the horn full of olive oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers. The Spirit of the Lord rushed upon David from that day onward. Then Samuel got up and went to Ramah.
1 Samuel 16:13
Only a few select people in the Old Testament had the privilege of being filled with the Spirit of God. These were people who would have special assignments: prophets, judges, Kings, etc… And, they were filled with the Spirit for specific purposes.
However, on this side of the Resurrection, the Holy Spirit has been given to all Believers. The purpose is still the same, to empower God’s people to do His work.
The Spirit isn’t given to give you goosebumps or to make you feel good. God has a purpose for your life. And, it is God sized!
You need the Holy Spirit to accomplish it.
Like the Old Testament prophets and the Early Church Believers, be filled with the Holy Spirit so God can use you in a mighty way.
Father, thank You for Your Spirit that comes in and takes up residence inside of us. Help us to accomplish what You have desired for our lives.
