"It is the decision of the Holy Spirit, and ours too." —Acts 15:28

Two weeks from today, we will celebrate Pentecost. We will receive in a new way the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete, Whom the Father will send in Jesus' name (Jn 14:26). The Spirit will instruct us in everything and remind us of all that Jesus told us (Jn 14:26). This instructing and reminding from the Spirit will have such an effect on our lives that our decisions will also be the decisions of the Holy Spirit (Acts 15:28). Therefore, our decisions will be correct, life-changing, life-giving, miraculously wise, and fruitful for God's kingdom.

Many of us have messed up our lives through bad decisions. Our marriages, finances, employment, family life, and lifestyle were forged by a series of bad decisions. The way out of this mess is to make good decisions by the power of the Spirit. Therefore, we must receive the Holy Spirit. Our lives, decisions, and futures depend on receiving the Holy Spirit. We must go into the upper room of prayer, repentance, and conversion. There we will receive the Spirit. He will change our lives, hearts, minds, and decisions.

Prayer: Father, may I be able to hear the Spirit tell me whether to turn to the right or the left (see Is 30:21).
Promise: "The city had no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God gave it light, and its lamp was the Lamb." —Rv 21:23
Praise: Praise the risen Jesus, Who has the power to change the most hardened heart! Praise Jesus, Savior, Good Shepherd, and King.
