As we mark the occasion of Pentecost, I am considering the varied ways in which Holy Spirit makes Himself known to us.
He gives us life and breath.
Initiates our new birth.
Provides all we need during life on earth.
Sustains us through to mortal death.
He hovers over all, anoints, equips and saves.
The author of our life ~ keeper of our days.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters” ~ Genesis 1:1-2
“Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest?’ I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest” ~ John 4:35
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what appeared to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them” ~ Acts2:1-4
