When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground.” (Psalm 104:30)

When I meditated on this Psalm, I deeply appreciate how much the world needed the Holy Spirit to freely move within it, awakening hearts and renewing the face of the ground!

Whenever we are going through hardships, God, in His own way, will be in the midst of us. The breath of life given by the Holy Spirit accompanied the groans we had in our difficulties, sharing our burdens, taking away our helplessness, strengthening the faith we have in Jesus and renewing our spirits.

A few years ago, I was by the sickbed of an elderly sister-in-Christ who lives by herself. For the last hour of her life, I just quietly held her hand, watched her breathing and stayed with her in silence. Each of her slow breath reminded me that it was the work of the Holy Spirit, helping her to let go of herself again and again. When she breathed her last, I momentarily realized that the Holy Spirit who gave us life had given her the breath of eternal life, receiving her into eternity.

God’s will and our needs are aligned. This is God’s grace.

Send your Spirit” (Psalm 104:30a) means God has a direction, that carries with it a sense of power and urgency, sending the Holy Spirit to men.

The pulpit theme for these two months (September and October) is: “By the Power of the Holy Spirit”. God has already sent the Holy Spirit to be with us, the Holy Spirit is our ever present help. Let us rely on the Holy Spirit at all times and live a holy and blessed life. May each of us be filled with the Holy Spirit.

May John Wesley’s prayer also become our prayer:

 

O grant that nothing in my soul
May dwell, but thy pure love alone!
O may thy love possess me whole,
My joy, my treasure, and my crown !
Strange fires far from my heart remove;
My every act, word, thought, be love!
