DEVOTION
Power From On High (Acts 2:1-4)

Peter, who denied the Lord thrice was clearly in the lead. Yet John, who stood by the cross, though he always wanted Peter's place, did not have any resentment towards him. The doubting Thomas was there. None of the other disciples chided him for being doubtful. All the disciples who fled at the time of adversity were there. Yet, Mary who watched his Son being betrayed,  deserted and executed from close quarters did not hold any grudge against the ones who fled. They were all in one accord. They were all restored by the love and compassion of their dear Master. Now they were ready to turn the world upside down. All that they needed was the power. And it fell and fell mightly upon them. The world was never going to be the same again.
Let us come together in one accord. The power is waiting to fall.

The Bread Of Life

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.    (Matthew 4:4)


Jesus was in the wilderness fasting for 40 days. At the end of it he was hungry. And the tempter seeing a golden opportunity that he might exploit, tempts Jesus with the idea of using His power for personal gratification. But the One who multiplied food twice for people who followed him, understood the motives.
There are times when physical needs matter, but Word of God matters more. Let us fill ourselves with the Word of God that will satisfy every need in our lives. Let us draw near the one who is The Word and who said,  I am the bread of life, he that comes to me shall never hunger.
