“Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting.” Acts 2:2
Terror had gripped the hearts of the Hebrews as Pharaoh and the whole Egyptian army was bearing down on them. They had nowhere to go, as they cried out to Moses, who cried out to God. God told Moses to stretch out his staff over the waters and then God sent a mighty wind to blow a great divide in the middle of the sea. As water towered on the left and right, every last Hebrew walked across on dry ground, to the safety of the other side.
A mighty wind had blown, changing the Hebrews’ lives forever. They were completely set free from the Egyptians and would never have to see them again. Never again would they experience the harsh treatment they had once endured from those evil task masters. They once were slaves, but now they were free at last!
About two thousand years later, God sent another wind. This wind would be the Wind of the Holy Spirit, which would also bring freedom and deliverance. In an instant, this Mighty Wind changed Peter from a coward into a mighty man of God. He then stood up and preached with great boldness and power and 3,000 people were saved.
Today, let me encourage you to allow the Mighty Wind of God’s Spirit to blow in your life every single day. We need His fresh wind to empower us and enable us to make our lives His witness.
