Daily devotional: Power from the Holy Spirit

Scripture
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere--in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Acts 1:8 NLT

Observation
Our power to live, follow God, and do His work does not come from ourselves. It is the Holy Spirit! And He enables us to do and accomplish what we are powerless to do on our own.

Application
Don't trust in my power and abilities. Submit to the Lord, and prayerfully walk in the Holy Spirit's power and leading.

Prayer
Lord, what a crazy time. I am so glad that my power comes from You, and that You don't leave us here on earth to just search out our way and do what is within our capabilities. Thank you for being actively involved in our lives and for caring for us even though we don't deserve it. I reiterate now that I belong 100% to You. I love You, respect You, and trust You fully. Please work in this house offer and open the doors for us to see Your hand if You are in this, but close the door and take the decision out of our hands if this is not what You have for us. We want to follow You in this and everything else.
