Pour Out His Spirit

Now that I’m retired, or shall I say semiretired because I still teach; I have more time to do one of my favorite things which are to volunteer. Over the years I’ve volunteered at food banks, I’ve helped people during natural disasters, I volunteered at the veteran’s hospital, and now I’m volunteering at my church. Our church is in a high foot traffic area, meaning people walk up and down the street past our church all day. I work at the church 3 to 4 hours a day. During that time if people wander in, to sit and read, drink coffee or pray, I assist.  Over the last couple of weeks, some things happened while I was in the church that recalled the following Scripture.

It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.Joel 2:28-29

About two weeks ago I was at church sitting in the lobby. No one had come in off the street, so I was looking at my iPhone. Then suddenly, I almost jumped out of my seat because I saw someone, or shall I say a shadow of someone come out of the room next to the lobby. I jumped and turned my head to the right, but immediately realized that what I saw was not an earthly person but someone in the spirit. I jumped out of surprise, not out of fear. I did not know what to do so I said a little prayer.

The following week I was sitting in the lobby alone and I almost jumped out of my seat again when I saw the shadow of someone walk across the room, next to the lobby.  Again, they were not an earthly person but a spiritual person. Again, I said a prayer.

Then again, a few days ago I was at church. On this day I brought in my cell phone to listen to some worship music while cleaning. I left the lobby to go to the restroom and when I arrived back in the lobby, I saw the shadow of someone standing near my cell phone which was sitting on the table playing worship music. This time I didn’t jump. The worship song that was playing was “How Great Thou Art.”

As this activity increases in your life, I pray for you to press in and ask God to go before you and open your eyes and pour out his spirit.

Blessings,

Sandra
