Monday of the Twenty First

Spirit of Power
The Lord Jesus asked if I understood. With His enlightened words, He poured out the wonderful grace of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Power, and the wonderful light of the Holy Spirit enlightened my soul. (Elizabeth) (March 24, 1963)
Today’s Readings: For our Gospel did not come to you in word alone, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with much conviction. (1 Thessalonians 1)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we can hear Your Word over and over again but if the Holy Spirit is not in what we are hearing, they can be just words to us. We know from our own lives- all the times we have heard the Gospel over and over again and it becomes so familiar that it just bounces off. And then in one moment The Holy Spirit opens our hearts to what You are saying and indeed Your Word pours over us with power and convicts us. Sometimes it is when we are seeking, sometimes it is just out of the blue, and a lot of times it is when we are desperate and we just have nowhere else to go and we are finally ready to listen. Lord, please help us to be docile to the promptings of the Holy Spirit so that Your Living Word speaks to daily!
