Jesus said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about me in the Law from Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. He said to them, “This is what is written: the Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and a change of heart and life for the forgiveness of sins must be preached in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. Look, I’m sending to you what my Father promised, but you are to stay in the city until you have been furnished with heavenly power.” He led them out as far as Bethany, where he lifted his hands and blessed them. As he blessed them, he left them and was taken up to heaven. They worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem overwhelmed with joy. And they were continuously in the temple praising God. (Luke 24:44-53, CEB)
You are to stay in the city until you have been furnished with heavenly power!
Heavenly Power! God came to live with us as one of us, and when God returned to where God was, God gave us heavenly power!
We are always with God and God is always with us. The power to continue in life is always with us. Sometimes, we lose sight of that. Sometimes, we wonder why God has forsaken us. Sometimes our darkness gets in our way of remembering we are never alone.
Know you have heavenly power and always have God with you.
Loving People. Loving God.
