"And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit" (John 20:21-23 NKJV).

We have a nice fireplace which we get to enjoy especially during the cold winter season here in Iowa. One evening I was up and about in the house and my husband was lying comfortably in his recliner. Although there were plenty of logs and embers it seemed that they were lifeless and the fire was going to die. As my husband didn’t want to get up he asked me to blow into that fire. So I blew my breath onto these logs and you wouldn’t believe it, the flames ignited right away and all the logs were set on fire. A beautiful, bright, hot and lively fire was rekindled.

There are people around us just like these logs or perhaps that’s even you. You feel empty, lifeless, discouraged with no hope. Now is the time where you definitely need some empowerment from above! Just allow Jesus to blow His breath on you and receive a fresh touch of His Holy Spirit. He will ignite you and always rekindle that fire in you.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
