VERSE: [The prophet Samuel speaking to Saul]
The Spirit of the Lord will come upon you in power, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person.
— 1 Samuel 10:6
When the Holy Spirit descended on people in the Old Testament, He would eventually depart from them. Under the New Covenant, the bible says that the Holy Spirit is sent to live inside all who believe on Jesus. However, the point is the same in both the Old and the New Testament – when the Holy Spirit descends on someone they are changed into a different person. It is impossible to be filled with the Holy Spirit for several years and look no different than you did before you received Him. You will act according to whatever is inside of you. The Holy Spirit will produce holy thoughts, holy actions, and holy growth in the life of whoever receives Him.
If you have never been filled with the Holy Spirit, confess the lordship of Christ over your life and invite Him in. If you do have the Holy Spirit, prove it by submitting to His will and allowing Him to change you into a different person.
Heavenly Father, I assert your lordship over my life. I thank you for sending your Holy Spirit to live inside of me to change me into a different person. I pray that there would be much evidence of the life changing power of your Holy Spirit in my life. In Jesus’ Name I pray, AMEN!
