They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2: 3-4
Shocker news!!! The Holy Spirit Who lives in you is…unpredictable!!! What, you mean you didn’t know? The Holy Spirit is the Helper Jesus told the disciples about in John 14:26 that God would send in His name to help them recall everything He had told them. The Holy Spirit is the same yesterday, today and forever because He is a part of the Holy Trinity. He is real, He is wonderful, and He is unpredictable. How so? Well, aside from comforting us when we are troubles, convicting us when we do wrong, and guiding us when we need direction to where God is working in our lives – He also fills us with power, knowledge and abilities to do unexpected things at unexpected times! Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation that we would have never imagined, but once we go through it, we have to say, “Look at God!” It was a situation that brought Glory to God, thanks to the unpredictable power of the Holy Spirit. There is a saying that ‘we cannot control anyone but our own self’, but the truth is that our self-control lies in our alignment with the Helper Who lives within us.
