Naked or Clothed

AFCRadioShawn-160-241-03112013Good day and God Bless Disciples and Ambassadors For Christ Jesus.

Have you received the Promise the Father sent? Are You Clothed With Power?

The Word of God states in Luke 24:49, “And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”

Many times we get tired of waiting for an answer for God. We start get say to ourselves, I think God wants me to do this or I think God wants me to go here or there. Instead of us waiting patiently for God to give us answer, waiting on His power to lead us, protect us, and guide us through our situation, we decide on our own that it is time.

We decide that it is time for us to act even though we have not heard from God. We think to ourselves, I am a child of God and He will protect me. If Jesus did not want me to do it then He would have told me so. If Christ did not want me to act now then it would not be on my mind so much.

Scripture informs us that we will receive the Holy Spirit and we will do God’s will using His power. It is through His power that the Holy Spirit guides us to do God’s will for our life. When we get impatient and act on our own, we are not under His umbrella of protection. We move from under it and are acting on our own. Then we wonder why we have failed. We have failed because we were naked and not “clothed with the power from on high.”

It may not be that God did not want you to do what you are acting on, but it may not have been the right time.

Jesus Loves You.
